NANCY (DEAVER) FRANKLIN

Nancy Deaver, daughter of John S. and Mary Deaver, was born in Deavertown, Ohio, October 2,1856, and passed away at her home in Clearfield, April 10, 1935, aged seventy-eight years, six months, and eight days.

She was the youngest of twelve and all the other had preceded her in death.

Mr. Deaver was a circuit rider for the United Brethren Church, and his daughter Nancy often accompanied him on his long drives. She began teaching while she was quite young, and taught for a number of years.

On March 30,1876, at Quincy, Iowa, she was united in marriage to William H. Franklin, who was called away in 1925. To this union were born four children:—a son who died in infancy; a daughter, Mrs. Blanche Anderson, who died at Ashland, Nebraska, July 27, 1921. Ralph Franklin, of Hardin, Montana; and Mrs. Belle Anderson of Clearfield, with whom she made her home. In addition to her children, she leaves to mourn her loss thirteen grandchildren,and several nephews and nieces in whom she was always very much interested.

Reared in a Christian home, she always stood for everything honorable and upright. Her chief thought was for the church and its welfare. She was an active worker in the Foreign Missionary Society, and delighted in enlisting others to work for that cause.

On her last Sunday she attended all the services—the Sabbath School class, and morning and evening services. The participation the evening service and greeted her friends in her usual kindly, friendly way.

She was always kind and sympathetic, interested always In other people, their joys and their sorrows. In losing this loved one, the son and daughter have lost a devoted mother; the grandchildren a loving grandmother and the community a good friend and neighbor.

Funeral services were held in Clearfield, conducted by the pastor, Rev. J. C. Turner, assisted by Rev, H.B. Hutchman. The church was filled to capacity by friends and neighbors. Interment was in the Clearfield Cemetery.
