  Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
August 15, 1918

Obituary ~ Lilah May Sage House

Lilah May Sage, eldest daughter of Charles W. and Ida Victoria Sage, was born at the home four miles south of Clearfield, Taylor Co., Iowa, on April 16th, 1886, and departed this life at the Cottage Hospital in Creston, Iowa, on August 11th, 1918, at the age of 32 years. 8 months, and 25 days, after an illness of only a short time.

On the 20th of October, 1917, she was united in marriage to Thomas House, and they were residents of Clearfield up to the time of her death. On the 3rd of August, 1918, this marriage was blessed by the admittance of a son into this home, but only for a short while; breath ceased, and the little life was ended. God's angels came and bore away again to the realms above the little spirit to Him who gave it.

Sometime near the twentieth year of her life Mrs. House heard the call of the Saviour. She answered and was made a member of the Christian Church in Clearfield, and ever afterward lived a true Christian life. Very early in life did she seem to realize the place she should fill in her parents' home, which she did, - that of a loving, obedient daughter, a kind and affectionate sister. She was a devoted wife and a thoughtful neighbor.

Mrs. House's immediate relatives left to mourn her loss are her kind and faithful husband; her parents; her brother Frank; two sisters, Mildred and Marie; her aunts, Mrs. Jennie Frame of California; Mrs. Belle Mackprang of Nebraska, Mrs. Viola Nickle of Clearfield, Mrs. Stella Reece of Creston; her brother's wife, Mrs. Frank Sage; Dock, Samuel and Harry House, brothers-in-law, all living near Clearfield; Clarence Frame, a cousin.

Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon, August 13th, at 2:30 o'clock by her pastor, Rev. Johnson, after which interment took plate in the beautiful [Clearfield] cemetery near town, where she will rest in quiet slumber near friends and loved ones gone before; where gentle breezes wave the beautiful summer flowers that bloom above them, and God's bright winged songsters sing to them their evening hymn; there to await God's coming when the faithful shall be called to that beautiful home above where sickness, sorrow, and death never come. She sleeps, she sleeps, and never more will her foot steps fall by the old home door, Nor her voice be heard with its loving tone. By the lone one left round her own hearth stone, one has gone, she has gone to her one has gone, she has gone to her home afar, to the beautiful land where the angels are.
