Clearfield, Iowa

OBITUARY ~ ADDIE J. (NOBLE) DEAN

Addie J. Noble was born October 4, 1842, near Jordanville, Herkimer County, New York. When four years of age, her parents moved to Hebron, McHenry County, Illinois, where they remained until Feb. of 1868, when they moved to Bedford, Taylor county, Iowa.

She was united in marriage to George W. Dean of Sandwich, Ill . ,on August 1, 1869, and moved to a farm fourteen miles northeast of Bedford, where they resided until 1903, when they moved to Clearfield.

When fifteen years of age, she made a public profession of her faith in Christ and united with the Baptist Church, and was always a faithful attendant at all the church services, and a teacher in the Sunday School until sixty years of age, when she joined the old ladies' class. She assisted in the organization of a Baptist Church at Grant Center, which disbanded after two years, the members moving to Clearfield and organizing the church there.

While Mrs. Dean was a Baptist, she was then unable to attend church in Clearfield on account of distance, so she became a faithful assistant at Greenwood Methodist Church in Grant Township, in all the church and Sunday School work. She was a member of the W. C. T.U., and always attended the sessions when health and weather permitted.

Though she had been in poor health for some time, hopes were held for her recovery, but she passed to her reward a few minutes before midnight, April 24, 1923, aged 80 years, 6 months, and 20 days.

She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband; four sons:—Charles of Mitchell, South Dakota; Fred of Chicago, Illinois; Roy and Guy of Ellendale, North Dakota; another son, Merle, dying when two years old. Also three daughters-in-law, seven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, besides many other relatives and friends.

Her father, mother, sister, two brothers precede her in death. She was called upon to mother two grand daughters, and rejoiced in the privilege of giving them a home, nurture and a mother's love and care.

The funeral services were held at the Clearfield Baptist Church, on Friday afternoon, April 27, conducted by a former pastor, Rev. Fields, assisted by Rev. Calkins of t h e M E Church. Many friends called to pay the last tribute of respect to the deceased. The WBC and GAR attended as a body. Interment followed in the Clearfield Cemetery.
