This community was shocked last Monday, May 26th when word passed around of the very sudden and unexpected death of Isaac V. Brewer who passed away that morning at 4:30 a.m. from a heart attack.

Mr. Brewer had been in poor health for several years, making many trips to Rochester and having undergone several operations there. The last of which was just recently. And he apparently had fully recovered and had just began feeling himself again when this unexpected incident occurred.

Isaac Valentine Brewer was born August 10, 1893 in Wyanet, Illinois, the youngest son of Sophronia and Isaac Brewer. At the age of 3 weeks, he lost his father, who was killed with a run-away of horses. At the age of 20 years he moved to Minnesota.

On October 30th, 1917 he was united in marriage to Emma Meurer of Adams. After farming eight years he quit and came to this village and entered the trucking business here which he has operated since. He belonged to the Adams Fire Department for many years and just recently received his life membership and went on the inactive list.

To Mr. and Mrs. Brewer seven children were born, 2 having died in infancy and a daughter, Genevieve passed away suddenly in 1938 after an appendectomy. Besides his wife, four daughters remain to mourn his untimely passing, Veronica (Mrs. Lloyd Asper) of Courtland, Florence, Catherine and Betty Ann at home. Four grandchildren, Marilyn, Ronald, Gerald and Robert Asper, two brothers, Jack Brewer of Chicago and Charles Brewer of Emmettsburg, Ia., six half brothers, Art Underwood of Minneapolis, Elmer Underwood of Davenport, Iowa and Edgar, Gerald, Eli and Oscar Underwood all of Blooming Prairie, three step sisters, Mrs. Ada Young, Mrs. Ida Staples and Mrs. Elizabeth Hamrick, three step brothers, Barney, Everett and Morgan Underwood, also survive. Funeral services were held at Sacred Hearth church Wednesday morning at 9:30 o'clock with Rev. Paul Britz officiating with interment in Sacred Heart cemetery.

The pallbearers were his six half brothers, Edgar Underwood, Gerald Underwood, Eli Underwood, Oscar Underwood, Art Underwood and Elmer Underwood.
