DEATH of C. E. DUNNING
FORMER Mt. AYR MAN PASSES AWAY
SATURDAY AT DENVER, COLO.
Funeral Here Today
Clarence DUNNING died at 9:10 Saturday morning, Aug. 25, 1906, at his home in Denver, Colorado. The remains
were brought to Mt. Ayr last night for interment, and the funeral was held this forenoon.
Mr. DUNNING was taken ill with tuberculosis in March, following a slight attack of pneumonia, and had been
confined to his bed since May 28.
Clarence E. DUNNING was born April 3, 1873, and at the time of his death
was aged 33 years, four months and 22 days. He was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Day DUNNING, born in Mount
Ayr, and spent the greater part of his life here. Being graduated from the Mount Ayr high school in 1890, he
later attended Simpson College, and was for many years employed as bookkeeper in the banks of his uncle at
Bedford, and of his father in Mt. Ayr. He had followed the same employment in Denver, in which city he
located in 1904.
Mr. DUNNING was married January 4, 1899, to Miss Jennie PRESTON. Their first child,
Mildred, died when a few months old. Their second daughter, Louise, is five years of age.
Mr. DUNNING was known to everyone in and near Mt. Ayr, and to all who knew him he was a friend. He was
skilled as a musician. During his last illness he bore with patience a great deal of suffering, comforting
the troubled hearts of his loved ones with the assurance that his peace was made with God and that no
terrors lurked for him in the valley of the shadow of death.
Mr. DUNNING is survived by his parents, his widow, his daughter Louise, and 12 brothers and sisters, his
death being the first in a family circle of 13 children.
The remains were accompanied to Mount Ayr by Mr.
DUNNING's widow and daughter of Denver, and by his mother, Mrs. Day DUNNING, of Mount Ayr, who had been at
his bedside for two months. The funeral was held at 10:30 today at the home of his parents, conducted by
Rev. A. B. WHITMER.
