Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
November 11, 1915

OBITUARY ~ MARY IVA HARDIN FARR

Mary Iva Hardin was born near Clearfield, Iowa, on January 2, 1886. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Hardin, lived at that time two miles south of town, near what is yet called "The Hardin School." She died on Friday, November 5th, 1915, at Sheridan, Wyoming, aged 29 years, 10 months and 3 days.

Iva, as she was called, spent her girlhood and early womanhood in this community. She graduated from the Clearfield High School in 1904, and from the C. C. C. C. in Des Moines in 1906, and taught in rural schools in this vicinity for some time. She was married to Charles Farr on June 21st, 1911. She and her husband have lived in South Dakota most of the time since her marriage.

One child was born to them, Geraldine, 4 months old. While still young she became a Christian, holding membership in the Clearfield Methodist church.

She leaves to mourn her death, the little daughter, the stricken husband, father and mother, two sisters, and three brothers, and a great many other relatives and friends.

Only 29 years and 10 months old! How short a life! And yet she leaves a host of broken ties,-daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend.

She will be mourned because her place is empty. The body was brought to Clearfield for interment. Services were held on Tuesday afternoon, November 9th, at the home of her parents near Calvary church, Pastor Carlson of the Clearfield Methodist church being in charge. There was a very large attendance of friends of the family, and of the girlhood friends of the one gone before. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.

Those present from a distance were the husband, Charles Farr of Sheridan, Wyoming; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Farr of Chadron, Nebraska; the sisters, Mrs. Ross Moore of Sturgis, Canada, and Mrs. Charley Abrams, with her husband, of Ellendale, North Dakota; one brother, Wes Hardin of Northern Minnesota. Mrs. Lillie Orris, Mr. and Mrs. Cartey of Glidden, Iowa. One brother, Sam, was unable to be present. The youngest brother, Grover lives in this vicinity.
