Elmer Allen, a life-long resident of the Winterset community and well known here through his years of service as a county and city employee, died suddenly Tuesday evening at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Hugh Hildebrand of Winterset.

Mr. Allen was 80 years of age and had been in delicate health for some time, due to a heart ailment.

His entire life was spent in and near Winterset. He was born near here July 8, 1867, the son of Isaac and Lisa Allen. His early life was spent in farming. After moving into Winterset, he was employed as a teamster, in county road work and in the Winterset streets department, for many years.
