Obituary ~ Martha Elizabeth (Holbrook) Darlington

The people of Clearfield were greatly shocked on Monday morning as they heard of the sudden death of Mrs Wm. Darlington, which occurred as she slept some time in the night. We understand that there had been nothing whatever in her health conditions that might had been a warning of such an event. It is probably explained by heart failure. The relatives have the sincere sympathy of all their friends in their hour of affliction.

Martha Elizabeth Holbrook was born June 27th, 1858 in Thoreau County, Illinois, and passed from this life at her home in Clearfield Feb. 7, 1921. In early life she removed to Missouri, and from that state to Iowa, the family settling on a farm northwest of Clearfield.

She was married to William P. Darlington, Nov. 15, 1883. To this union seven daughters were horn, of whom six are now living. They are by name: Mrs. Dora Seibert, Mrs. Mary Beatty, Mrs. Alice Hargin, Mrs. Myrtle Muir, and Grace Darlington, all of Clearfield and vicinity. Mrs. Bessie Overholser resides in Eldorado, Kansas.

Mrs. Darlington united with the Clearfield Methodist church in 1906 and lived a consistent Christian life.

She leaves to mourn her loss, one brother and five sisters, her six daughters and thirteen grandchildren and her side companion, W.P. Darlington.

The funeral services were held at Clearfield Methodist Church at 2 p. m. Wednesday, Feb. 9th. The pastor, Rev. Douglass officiated. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful. Interment followed in Clearfield Cemetery.
