OBITUARY ~ GRANT E. CARSON
Grant E. Carson, son of Orlando and Ophelia Carson was born Nov. 9, 1893 near Clearfield, Iowa, and departed this life Oct. 16th, 1936 at the Greater Community hospital in Creston at the age of 42 years, 11 months and 7 days.
He united with the United Presbyterian church when he was a young man.
Grant became ill when two years of age and was stricken with infantile paralysis which left him permanently crippled. He received his early education in the rural schools near Clearfield, entering the Clearfield high school in the 9th grade. He graduated with the class of 1911.
After leaving school though physically handicapped, he succeeded in providing a living for himself and family until the time of his death. This struggle no doubt helped to bring about his early death.
He was married to Gladys Keith of Benton, Iowa, July 25. To them were born six children: Donella of Long Beach, Calif., Doris, who has been living with her father, Myron, Leo and Barbara Jean, who reside with their mother in Albuquerque New Mexico. One son, Harold Lyle, preceded his father In death.
Those left to mourn his early death are his five children, his aged father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. O. L. Carson of Clearfield, one brother, J. W. Carson of Diagonal, and one sister, Mrs. A. V. Wallace of Independence, Mo., nieces, nephews and other relatives, and a host of friends.
Funeral services were held at the United Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon at 2:30, the Rev. H. B. Hutchman officiating. Interment was made in the Clearfield cemetery.
Pallbearers were E. M. Mc Math, Leland McMath, Flay Young, John Knox, Wilbur Bailey and Harry Morey. Music was furnished by Mrs. J. M. Stephenson, Mrs. Claude Peltier, J. R. Crew and Donald Green.
