OBITUARY ~ LOUISA M. (HORNSBY) CLOUSE

Mrs. Louisa M. Clouse, an old settler in Ringgold county, died at her home here Wednesday, September 13th, aged 74 years, 8 months and 11 days. She was born January 12th, 1859, in Vernon county, Wisconsin, and received her early education in the rural school near her father's farm, later attending high school in Baroka, Wisconsin. She was married in 1879 to Delbert M. Clouse, and in 1881 they came to Iowa, settling near Spaulding, Iowa . They later moved to a farm in Ringgold county and for many years made their home there until advancing years caused them to move into town, coming several years ago to Clearfield to make their home. Mr. Clouse passed away November 1st, 1932. Three children were born to them, James Laverne,June, and Lloyd N., who died in March 1912. Mrs. Clouse was converted and became a member of the Clearfield Christian church, but while residing on the farm, placed her membership in the Grant Center Methodist church near her home, and when that church was disbanded again came back to the home church, Clearfield Christian church where she was a faithful member. Mrs. Clouse was a devoted Christian, carrying all her religion into her every day life, was a faithful attendant at all church services, and was a loving wife and mother, a true friend and good neighbor. She will be greatly missed in her home circle and in the community. She leaves to mourn her going, her children, James Lavern of Diagonal, June of near Clearfield, grandchildren, Cecil Clouse of Clearfield; Floyd Clouse of Shannon City; Max and Rex Clouse of Diagonal; and Mrs. Lucile Pritchett of Clearfield; one sister, Mrs. Jake Blow of Beaman, la., and Mrs. Stella Burt of Marshalltown, Iowa; one brother, Alfred Hornsby of Washington state, and two great grandchildren, Donald Clouse and Louise Irene Pritchett, and other relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held in the Christian church Friday afternoon, her pastor, Rev. Phillip Nystrand, officiating. Mr. and Mrs. J. Ralph Crew, Mrs. Bert Lyddon and Joe Baxter sang. Pall bearers were W. A. McKinstry, John Wall, Will Bladon, Frank Bender, Eugene Baxter, and Albert Spurrier. Interment in Clearfield cemetery.
