OBITUARY - WILLIS M. COMBS

Willis M. COMBS, son of John and Sephrona, was born April 22, 1868, near Allendale, Worth County, Mo., and departed this life at Des Moines, Iowa, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Gail HULL, June 8, 1928, aged 60 years, 1 month and 15 days.

He lived in Worth County until November, 1915, when with his family he moved to Mount Ayr, Iowa, where he resided until his death.

He was married to Miss Bell MOSBARGER, December 12, 1888, at Allendale, Mo. To this union were born seven children: Wilma, dying in infancy; Mrs. Etta WHORLOW of St. Joseph, Mo.; Mrs. Goldie HART of St. Joseph, Mo.; Everett of Des Moines, Ia.; Mrs. Gail HUFF of Des Moines, Iowa; Mrs. Margie WALKER of Mount Ayr, Ia.; and Miss Orpha at home. He lived a constant Christian life and was dearly loved by all who knew him. He graduated from the Kansas City Automotive school, December 12, 1912, and received his diploma.

He was affectionate, nobel, loving and kind to all and as age advanced and the flesh grew weaker he bore his suffering with the fortitude that marked the heroism of the Christians of early days.

Besides his wife and children he leaves to mourn three brothers and two sisters: Mrs. C. E. GENTRY of Martinsville, Mo.; mrs. J. T. RANKIN of Allendale, Mo.; S. L. COMBS, Grant City; Lawrence COMBS, Mount Ayr, Ia.; and Chas. COMBS of Redding, Iowa.

Funeral services were conducted Sunday at 2:30 o'clock at the Allendale Baptist church, Wm. Harold SMITH of Mount Ayr officiating. A quartet of the Mount Ayr Christian church furnished the singing. A very large congregation was present to show their love and esteem. Interment was in the Kirk cemetery [Alldendale, MO].

In the hands of our God
We've done all we're able
And with grief we are bowed,
To think one so lovable
Should be placed 'neath the sod.

Like a flower that bloomed
In the sunshine of May,
Thy sweet life was doomed
To pass quickly away;
But with Christ it will bloom
Into one eternal day.

When we placed our dear father
Beneath the cold sod,
How dearly we felt the sting
Oh, Thy avenging rod;
But we will humbly bow
To Thy will, oh God
