The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1931

DEATH of MRS. O. C. HOUSE.

The community heart was filled with sorrow Thursday afternoon of last week at the announcement of the death of Mrs. O. C. HOUSE, of Tingley, who passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Thomas TEALE, in Mount Ayr. A little more than two weeks previously while visiting in the home of her daughter Mrs. HOUSE suffered a heart attack which left her in a weakened condition and on the advice of her physician she remained in the home of her daughter. Her faculties of mind remained unimpaired until the end which came suddenly and peacefully.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Methodist church in Tingley, being conducted by Rev. E. S. MENOHER, pastor of the Mount Ayr Methodist church, who formerly served the Tingley church and who is an intimate friend of the family. The large attendance at the funeral and the many beautiful floral tributes bore silent tesitmony to the high regard in which the departed was held in the community where her life was spent. The service was beautiful in simplicity, being a sincere expression of the community's love and sympathy. Following the services at the church a long train of automobiles filled with sorrowing relatives and sympathizing friends passed to the Tingley cemetery where the body was tenderly laid to rest.

Mrs. HOUSE is survived by her husband and five children, all of whom were in attendance at the funeral. Others from a distance who were in attendance were Mrs. S. A. THOMPSON, Mr. and Mrs. Carl STORER and son Carl, Jr. and Mrs. W. S. McINTIRE of Rexford, Kan.; Mrs. Lou ASBURY, Omaha, Neb.; Mrs Dille SULLIVAN, Corydon, Iowa; Mrs. Fred LEWIS, Emporia, Kan.; Sumner HANCOCK, Topeka, Kan.; Mrs. Laura HANCOCK, Mr. and Mrs. Frank CLOSE, Plano, Iowa; Mrs. Harry W. MOORE, Corydon, Iowa.

The following obituary was read at the funeral:

Emma F. HANCOCK was born near Melrose, Monroe county, Iowa, August 2, 1861, and passed away June 4, 1931, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Thomas TEALE, in Mount Ayr, Iowa, aged 69 years, 10 months and two days.

On December 8, 1865, she was united in marriage to O. C. HOUSE at Chariton, Iowa. To this union were born five children - Clifford and Bertram of Helena, Montana, James Randall of Tingley, Louva D. GRAY and Leota TEALE of Mount Ayr, Iowa. Besides her husband and children she leaves seven grandchildren, four sisters, four brothers and a host of friends.

She united with the Methodist church in early life and was a faithful member of the Tingley Methodist church at the time of her death.

She was a devoted wife and mother, a good neighbor and a friend to all. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord. They rest from their labors and their works do follow them.

CARD OF THANKS.

We desire to express our heartfelt thanks for the beautiful flowers and the kind words of sympathy expressed by friends both in Tingley and Mount Ayr. - O. C. HOUSE and children.
