OBITUARY - MRS. HARRY GRACE

Mildred Mae PARKS, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L[awrence] A[lbert] PARKS [& Rosa Belle (QUERY)], was born February 5, 1900 in Taylor County and passed away at her home near Diagonal, Iowa, January 1, 1938. She was 37 years, 10 months and 25 days old.

She grew to young womanhood near Conway, graduating from the Bedford High School in 1917. Following graduation she taught for three years in Taylor County.

On Jan. 6, 1921, she was united in marriage to Harry G[eorge] GRACE of Diagonal. Four children were born this union, G. A., Anna Beth, Hubert Lee, at home and Patricia Mae, who preceded her mother in death by five weeks.

In early childhood, Mrs. GRACE united with the Greenwood Methodist church, remaining faithful to her church and to her God all her entire life.

November 26 an accidental gasoline explosion occurred, claiming the life of her ten year old daughter, Patricia, and burning Mrs. GRACE to such an extent that although given the best of medical care and careful nursing, she passed quietly and peacefully from this life. Besides her immediate family she leaves her parents, Mr. and Mrs. L[awrence] A[lbert] PARKS of Conway, two sisters, Mrs. [Gail] Fred KOPP and Mrs. [Alice] Ralph BLADON of Clearfield, and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn her loss.

Funeral services were held on Monday afternoon, January 3rd, from the Diagonal Methodist church, Rev. A. L. JORDAN delivering the sermon. So large was the number of friends and neighbors present that many were unable to gain admittance and this testifies to the respect in which Mrs. GRACE was held in the community. In her life she was unselfish; she lived not for any selfish end, but lived for others.

Interment at Diagonal Cemetery.
