OBITUARY - VERNA CLARA (RAINS) HUFF

Verna Clara HUFF was born July 14, 1910 at Villisca, Iowa to Marion G. and Nellie (RUSSELL) RAINS. Verna passed away August 2, 2000 at the Clearview Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Verna was united in marriage to Teddy Donald HUFF on December 12, 1927 in Creston, Iowa. They farmed in Ringgold county, Iowa for many years, moving into Mount Ayr in 1961. Verna began working at the Ringgold County Hospital at this time and continued working there until the mid 1970's.

Verna was a member of the Blackmore Friendship club. She was a dedicated and faithful farmer's wife. She had a big garden and canned the produce to feed her family. She dearly loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. When faced with moving to the Clearview Home, Verna was ready and willing. She believed that they were the nicest people and appreciated all that they did for her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Marion and Nellie RAINS; her husband Ted in 1968; two children, Billy Eugene and Marion Lois; one sister Margaret WEST; and three brothers, Carter, Elmer L. and Clark RAINS.

Left to cherish her memory are her children: Don HUFF and wife Connie of Kellerton, Iowa, Carter HUFF and wife Andra of Hiawatha, Iowa, Francis K. HUFF and wife Judy of Lincoln, Nebraska, Carroll HUFF and wife Ellen of Albany, Oregon, Darrold HUFF and wife LuAnn of Loveland, Colorado and Janet MERCER and husband Don of Mount Ayr; 19 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren and nine great-great-grandchildren; two sisters, Marion WICK of Osceola and Norma GRADY of Creston; and a host of relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home of Mount Ayr on Saturday, August 5, 2000 with Reverend John BRILLO officiating. Musicians were Nancy SACKETT, Mary TRULLINGER and Margaret BICKERS. Casket bearers were Richard MERCER, Terry MERCER, Jake HUFF, Michael MERCER, Barry HUFF and Willis HUFF.

Verna was laid to rest in the Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr.
