OBITUARY - FRANK BERNARD CARR

Frank Bernard CARR, son of Patrick and Katherine WARD CARR, was born April 10, 1905 in Beaconsfield, Iowa, and passed away April 17, 1987 at the Clearview Nursing Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Frank graduated from the Beaconsfield High School. He farmed unil 1926 when the family moved to Maloy, Iowa. He worked in the bank there until he purchased his own business in 1928. He ran the service station, grocery store, dance hall until his retirement in 1973. Frank was also postmaster for a short period of time during the early years of his business. Following his retirement he moved into the Clearview Nursing home in Mount Ayr.

In Maloy, Frank served on the school board, city council, and was city clerk for many years. He was a member of Immaculate Conception Church in Maloy, and St. Joseph's Church in Mount Ayr.

After the death of his father in 1923, Frank assumed the duties of head of the family for the children remaining at home. He remained a loyal and devoted brother throughout the years. Although he never had any children of his own, he took great pleasure with the relationships he developed with all the children he came in contact with over the years.

On Sept. 3, 1950, he was united in marriage with Viriginia WILLIAMS WILSON at Oskaloosa, Iowa. Virginia passed away July 13, 1974. He was also preceded in death by his parents; three sisters, Marie, Kathleen and Helen; and four brothers, Eugene, Maurice, Edward and James.

Frank is survived by a brother, Patrick CARR of Mount Ayr; a sister, Margaret HALEY of Shenandoah, Iowa; many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by a step-son and wife, Dick and Dorothy WILSON, and their six children.

Funeral services were held April 20, 1987 from the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church at Maloy, Iowa, conducted by Fr. John ZEITLER. Music was provided by Joyce WEEHLER and Kathleen TAYLOR.

Casketbearers were Dan CARR, Tom CARR, Dan STEELE, James HALEY, Gary LAUGHLIN and Lynn LaFOLLETTE. Honorary pallbearers were Cleo LYNCH, Lee KEENAN, Rolfe TAYLOR, Ronald CONLEY, Richard WILSON, Robert T. SHAY, Bernard SULLIVAN and LaVerne WORTHINGTON.
