OBITUARY ~ ETHEL MARGARET GRACE

Ethel Margaret Grace, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. J. Grace, was born on the farm southwest of Clearfield. Aug. 5th, 1914, and died Sept. 15, 1925, aged eleven years, one month and twelve days,

The family removed to Clearfield in Mar. 1922.

Ethel united with the church in 1922 under the pastorate of Rev. Calkins, She was faithful in her attendance upon Sunday School and the Home Guards. Was often toward the front at the preaching service helping with her presence the pastors and others at the hour of worship.

She was a sweet dispositioned child, a favorite of all, having a place in her heart for the many who smiled back and were helped. Those left to mourn her untimely going are the parents, Mr. and Mrs W. J. Grace, Mrs. Elza Lyddon, Elmo on the farm, Homer living at Lenox, Edna, Raymond, and Thelma at home, besides other more distant relatives. Mrs. Elza Lyddon is sick and could not be present at this time. She was taken ill Friday evening. Was a patient sufferer and clung to life. She was kind and gentle in the last, was a great lover of flowers and appreciated the bouquets sent in. Among the passages of Scripture she had memorized she loved the one from the Psalms which he often repeated, "0 give thanks unto the Lord for He is good, for His mercy endureth forever".

A little after noon on Tuesday just after recognizing one of the loved ones who came to the bedside, she smiled and was not, for God took [unreadable].

Funeral services were held at the home on Wednesday afternoon, with a large attendance of friends. Beautiful flowers were there in profusion sent by thotful friends. Her pastor was in charge, Rev. Matthews, assisted by Rev. S. Boyd Johnson. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
