Elbert Grizzle and Ida Mae Grizzle

While looking through my boxes of Grizzell data, all of which is undocumented, looking for something else, I came upon two obits that were sent to my brother Willard. Upon Willard's death in 1985, they were given to my brother Estel--who sent them to me. Before I lose these obits again, I thought I would post them for your interest. I'm sorry but I don't have the dates they were put in the newspaper. Ida Mae Grizzel was our great aunt and the wife of Robert Grizzel who was brother to our grandfather John W. Grizzel; Elbert Grizzle was (I believe) our second or third cousin.

Greenup: Mrs. Ida Mae Grizzel, 76, wife of Robert Grizzel, died Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock at Oldtown, this county, following an extended ilness.

Survivors are the husband and the following children: Herbert of Mattimore, Ind., Everett, Laurel, Ind. Roy, Alpine, Ind., Roscoe, Oldtown, Elbert, Willard OH., Mrs. Mary Lykins, Alpine, Ind. Mrs. May Moore, Oldtown, Mrs. Alice Moore, Centerville, Ind., and Mrs. Mabel Meadows of Oldtown.

The body was removed to the residence this afternoon. Last rites will be conducted Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Laurel Missionary Baptist Church at Oldtown.

The Rev. Baxter Osborne will conduct the funeral services. Burial is to be made in the Grizzel Cemetery at Oldtown and will be under the direction of Howard Rigss of the Riggs-Sammons Funeral Home of this city.

Edgewater: Elbert Grizzle, 74, 1425 Needle Palm Drive, Florida Shores, a carman for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in Willard, Ohio, for 31 years before his retirement, died Thursday at Fish Memorial Hospital, New Smyrna Beach.
Mr. Grizzle was born in Oldtown, Kentucky and came here six years ago from Willard. He and his wife Mallie, observed their 53rd wedding anniversary last August.
Survivors other than his wife include a daughter, Dorothy Snipes, Shiloh, Ohio; a brother, Raymond, Connersville, Ind.: four grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Dudley, Edgewater, is in charge.

Hope this helps someone. Phyllis
