Florence Rebecca DAILEY, daughter of Conner STEPHENS and Ida BLAKER, was born in Taylor County on Nov. 10, 1905, and passed away Sept. 1, 1981 at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr, Iowa, at the age of 75 years and 10 months.

Florence spent her early years on a farm north of Blockton, Iowa, and went to the East Gay country school through the eighth grade. She attended the Blockton high school and graduated from the Queen city College of Dressmaking and Tailoring in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1924. Florence moved to St. Joseph, Mo. in 1925, where she was a resident for many years and in 1973 she returned to Blockton, Iowa.

She was united in marriage to O. L. DAILEY on August 10, 1947.

Florence was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, David E. STEPHENS and Paul B. STEPHENS; and two sisters, Mable and Mary.

Left to cherish her memory are: her husband, O. L. DAILEY of Blockton, Iowa; a son and daughter-in-law, Richard W. and Dixie DAILEY of Colorado Springs, Colo.; two grandsons, Stephen Lee DAILEY and Wife, Kathy of Houston, Te., and Mark Alan DAILEY of Abbyville, La.; two sisters, Elma WILKINSON of Cheyenne, Wyo. and Euphan JUDY of Bedford, Iowa; two sisters-in law, Faith [portion of obituary missing].

She operated Rebecca's Needle in St. Joseph, Mo. and was employed at Einbenders of St. Joseph as designer and dressmaker. Florence and O. L. owned and operated Uncle Dudley's Toggery in Maryville, Mo.

She was also Grand Representative of the St. Joseph chapter. When she returned to Iowa, Florence remained in the Eastern Star and was a member of Mount Ayr Order of the Eastern Star #356 at the time of her death.

She was an active member of the Iowa Federation of Republican Women and was a member of the Bedford Republican Women. She was also very active in Blockton community affairs and was a member of the Blockton Community Betterment Club.

Florence was a kind and considerate person, a joy to be around, and she will be missed by those who knew her.
