OBITUARY - HIRAM A. GILLILAND

American Flag.jpg Hiram A. GILLILAND, the fourth child of David H. and Rosa GILLILAND, was born June 7, 1895, at Coffeyville. Kan., and passed away at the Decatur County hospital, Leon, Iowa, Nov. 23, 1966, at the age of 71 years, 5 months and 16 days.

He spent his early boyhood in Coffeyville, Kan., moving to Ringgold County, Iowa, about 1915, where he was engaged in farming.

He served in the Armed Forces during World War 1, being honorably discharged May 2, 1919.

He was united in marriage to Minnie LOVELL on February 14, 1920, who passed away in July of 1946. To this union were born three children: Alta Mae CLEMMONS of Norwalk, Calif.; Alice INMAN of Downey, Calif.; and Lewis L. of Baton Rouge, LA.

He was married to Edna CREVELING on Aug. 15, 1947, who cared for him faithfully during his illness.

He joined the United Brethren church when a child. He was a member of the American Legion Ralph A. Judson Post No. 51 and always enjoyed supporting it.

He leaves to mourn his passing, besides his wife Edna, the daughters Alta Mae and Alice and son Lewis; nine grandchildren; three sisters and two brothers, Ruth PRATHER, Dorothy HUGO, Ann, Kenneth and Jasper, all of Coffeyville, Kan., and a host of other relatives and friends.

"There comes a time for all of us, when we must say Goodbye,
But Faith and Hope and Love and Trust can never, never die;
Although the curtain falls at last, is that a cause to grieve?
The future's fairer than the past, if only we believe and trust in God's eternal care.
So when the Master calls Let's say that life is more fair.
Although the curtain falls."

Funeral services were held from the Lamoni Methodist church at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 26, 1966, conducted by Elder Robert HYNDEN and Rev. Gary BIRD, followed by a military service at the cemetery conducted by the Ralph A. Judson Legion Post No. 51. Interment was in Rose Hill cemetery [Lamoni].
