OBITUARY ~ DORIS DARLINGTON
Doris, youngest daughter of C. F. and Evagene Darlington, was born near
Clearfield, Iowa, Nov. 27th, 1897, and died July 21st, 1918, at her home in
Ames, Iowa, aged 20 years, 8 months and 20 days.
Being sorely afflicted from
her birth, she bore her affliction with a sweet, patient spirit. As she was
very fond of music, she spent happy hours singing, but now her sweet voice is
stilled, her sufferings are over. The kindly ministrations to her many needs
by those in the home will he be needed no more. She has gone to a home not
prepared by hands for the pure in heart.
Services were held at the home in
Ames Monday afternoon. Afterwards the remains were brought to Clearfield, and
Tuesday morning at ten o'clock at the Clearfield Cemetery, Rev. J. V. Wright
of Macksburg, a former pastor of the family; assisted by Rev. Aikin, conducted
a fitting service and spoke words of comfort to the bereaved relatives, while
a quartette furnished music suitable for the occasion, and Doris was tenderly
laid to rest in a flower strewn grave beside the brothers gone before.
