OBITUARY ~ DELBERT MORRIS CLOUSE

Delbert Morris Clouse, son of Charles and Mary Clouse, was born January 25, 1860, in Vernon county, Wisconsin. He died at his home in Clearfield, Iowa,November I, 1832, aged 72 years, 9 months and 6 days.

He was left without a father at an early age, his father having lost his life as a Union soldier in the battle of Shiloh. When a lad of about 12 years, he came to Taylor County, Iowa with his mother and step-father and located on a farm one and one-half miles west of Lenox. Here he attended the rural and Lenox school, and grew to young manhood.

On December 7, of 1879 he was married to Louisa M. Hornby. To this union were born three children: James Lavern of Diagonal; Jessie June Callahan of Clearfield; and Lloyd Ed who preceded his father in death in March of 1912.

Upon making profession of his faith in Christ and receiving baptism, Mr. Clouse was received into the membership of the Clearfield Christian church. Subsequently he and his wife were, while living on their farm, members of the Grant Center Methodist church, but returned their membership to the Clearfield Christian church when services at Grant Center were discontinued.

On account of failing eyesight he left his farm home in 1928, and he and Mrs. Clouse came to make their home in Clearfield. In the years that followed he was always grateful to his friends who were sympathetic with him in his suffering. He himself was kindhearted, ever ready to help those in need a loving father and husband, loved by all who knew him. Besides his faithful wife, who tenderly cared for him during his affliction, he leaves to mourn his death two children, five grandchildren, two great grandchildren, three half brothers, two half-sisters, numerous nieces and nephews, and a host of friends.

Funeral services were held at the Christian Church Thursday afternoon at 1:30, Rev. Hutchman of the United Presbyterian church having charge and Rev. J. C. Turner of the Methodist church assisting. Interment was made in the Clearfield cemetery.
