Obituary ~ Nancy Catherine Yaryan Hooker
Mrs. Nancy Hooker, until recently residing here, died in a hospital following
an operation, at an early hour on Monday. She had been living with a son and
daughter at Mount Vernon, South Dakota, and the friends here did not know of
her condition until news came of her death. The body was brought to Diagonal,
near which the family had lived for many years, and the funeral services were
held at the Clearfield Methodist Church at 2:30 on Tuesday, conducted by
Pastor Douglass, and interment was in the Clearfield Cemetery.
Nancy Catherine Yaryan was born in Wapello County, Iowa, on Dec. 2, 1857 and
was thus at her death 62 years, 10 months and 2 days old.
She came with the family to Ringgold county in 1867 and was married to John
Henry Hooker in October 1873. Mr. Hooker died about sixteen years ago. To
their union were born four children all now living. They are H. M. Hooker of
Mt. Vernon, South Dakota; U. L. and V. L. Hooker of Bouton, Iowa; and Mrs.
Minnie Nation of Mt. Vernon, South Dakota. Besides the children, she leaves
three grandchildren, her aged mother, three brothers and one sister Gan,
Andrew, and John Yaryan, and Mrs. [ ] of Billings, Montana.
The last named was not present at the funeral.
Mrs Hooker had been a member of the Clearfield Methodist Church since 1915,
coming into membership by letter. She had been a Christian for the greater
part of her life.
