Barron, Cora Mrs. – died Nov. 20, 1965, 73, local hospital, Pacific Grove resident 25 years (Herald Nov. 22&23, 1965 p2)

Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA Nov 22, 1965 p2
Mrs. Cora Barron, 73, a resident of Pacific Grove for the past 25 years, died Saturday night in a local hospital after a month’s illness due to a chronic heart ailment from which she had suffered for several years. Active in community affairs of Pacific Grove and a member of the Sojourners Club of the Order of Eastern Star, Mrs. Barron’s favorite activity was the Pacific Grove Senior Citizens Club, of which she was a charter member. She was one of the small group responsible for its organization and its clubhouse at Jewell and 19th streets. She served on its first board of directors in 1960 and was its secretary for the succeeding three years and club historian from the beginning. She also handled its publicity. For a year she was club hostess and put out its first club bulletin as well as serving as assistant tour chairman. Mrs. Barron was a member of the Christian Church of Pacific Grove and the Republican Women’s Club. She was born on a farm near Van Meter, Iowa, on Dec. 1, 1891, and moved to Des Moines, Iowa, at the age of 6 with her mother, nine sisters and one brother. She was the sole survivor of this family. With her husband, the late Glenn Barron, she lived in Des Moines until his retirement from the city’s police department in 1941, when the couple moved to Pacific Grove. Mrs. Barron is survived by her daughter, Mrs. Margaret Barron-King, three grandchildren, Mrs. Margot Olsen, Miss Kathleen King, and Kenneth Glenn Olsen, all of Pacific Grove; and several nieces and nephews living elsewhere. In compliance with Mrs. Barron’s express instructions, no funeral services were held. The Paul Mortuary was in charge of arrangements. Friends wishing to make contributions in her memory may do so to the Pacific Grove Senior Citizens Club.
