Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
December 12, 1915

OBITUARY ~ DORA EVA KNOX HARVEY

Dora Eva Knox, daughter of J. J. and Etta Sargent Knox, was born June 4th, 1883, at the place known the Knox homestead, three miles west of Clearfield. Here her childhood and early womanhood were spent.

On February 25, 1908, she was united in marriage to Granville L. Harvey. To this union were born six children, Edith, Opal, Forrest, William, Hazel and Paul; the eldest aged eleven years, the youngest, three weeks.

In her early girlhood Dora united with the Greenwood Methodist church, and until her death remained a faithful, conscientious member. Not only was she faithful to her church, but in her home was she most patient and kind, ever ready to help and sympathize with those about her. It was here that her love of Christ shone the brightest.

Thru all her weeks and months of suffering and pain there was no murmur, and when at last she felt the end near, she encouraged those about her by love, faith, and content to leave all to Him who doeth all things well. She passed peacefully to her heavenly home Saturday, November 27th, 1915.

She leaves to mourn her death, her husband, six children, three sisters,- Mrs. Dan Bruner, Miss Clara Knox, and Mrs. Clyde Owens and three brothers-E. P., H. L., and J. C. Knox. Besides these, hosts of other relatives, friends, and neighbors mourn the loss of a sincere friend, one who could be trusted to do her best at all times and under all circumstances.

[Poem] Funeral services were held a Greenwood Chapel at 1:00 o'clock Monday afternoon, the sermon being preached by her pastor, Rev R. E. Mitchell, pastor of Conway Greenwood churches. Interment was made in the Clearfield Cemetery.
