Mrs. Van Gundy
Meets Death When Auto Goes Over Embankment Near Boulder Lake
Sad in the extreme was the death of Mrs. Lucille VanGundy, which resulted from an automobile accident on the evening of November 19. Mrs. VanGundy and William William Wehman were returning from Boulder in Mr. Wehman's car. When near Boulder lake an approaching car turned their lights full on the Wehman car in such a manner as to totally blind Mr. Wehman and his car ran over the embankment at the side of the road. Mrs. VanGundy's skull was crushed and she lived but a few hours after being taken to the Boulder hospital.
Lucille Channell was born in Colfax, Iowa, March 1, 1895. When seven years of age she moved with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Granville Channell, to Colorado Springs. After residing at that place for six years the family moved to Lafayette which has since been their home. Here Lucille grew to womanhood and was educated in the public schools, and graduated from the Lafayette high school. On May 15, 1915, she was united in marriage to Clarence Ernest VanGundy, who preceded her in death August 14, 1917. To them was born one child, Venora Lois now aged two years and who survives her mother.
Beside her little daughter she is survived by her parents, five sisters and four brothers. Funeral services were held from the home of her sister, Mrs. Robert Mason, Friday, November 22, conducted by Rev. R. C. Boss, and burial was made in the Lafayette cemetery.
Lucille was buried in a plot owned by Granville Channell.
