The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1928

OBITUARY - RICHARD JACKSON.

Richard JACKSON, son of Luther and Amanda JACKSON, was born in Worth county, Missouri, February 25, 1864, and departed this life at his home in Mount Ayr, Iowa, June 29, 1918, being at the time of his death 64 years, four months and four days old.

On August 6, 1884, he was united in marriage to Alice MURRAY, making their home in Harrison county, Missouri. To this union seven children were born, four of which, Luther, Louise, and two infants, preceded him in death. Those surviving him are Carl of Mount Ayr, Ralph of Kellerton, and Beatrice at home.

He united with the Lotts Grove Baptist church in 1891, remaining a faithful member of this church until his death. He also was a member of the M. W. A. Camp No. 2529 at Hatfield, Mo.

Nine years ago he moved with his family to his present home in Mount Ayr where he devoted himself, besides his regular duties, to the helping and relieving the suffering of others. To his friends he was familiarly known as "Uncle Dick."

His death was entirely unexpected as he was up and about his work in his usual cheery manner the day before he passed away.

He leaves to mourn his departure besides his wife and three children and six grandchildren, one brother, Curtis JACKSON, two sisters, Mrs. Margaret KIDNEY and Mrs. Luticia MAULDIN, all of Grant City, Mo.. One brother, James JACKSON, and two sisters, Mrs. Belle MILLER and Mrs. Jane HENSLEY, preceded him in death.

As he chose as his mission in life the relieving of the sufferings of others, he was relieved by his Master of the suffering usually attendant upon those who pass from this life to the great beyond.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at Lotts Grove, conducted by Rev. HYDE, of Grant City, Mo. His body was laid to rest beside his children who proceded him to await the final summons of his Master and hear the welcome plandit, "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of thy Lord." The music was furnished by a quartet composed of Mrs. H. C. BEARD, Mrs. E. K. ALLYN, Arthur LIGGETT, Harry LIGGETT, of Mount Ayr, accompanied by Mrs. Roy MILLER, of Mount Ayr, at the piano.

Card of Thanks.

The family wish to extend their thanks to the many friends and neighbors for their kindness and beautiful floral offering on the occasion of the death of our husband and father. --Mrs. Richard JACKSON and children
