OBITUARY ~ LULU FAY JAMESON

Miss Lula Jameson was taken to the Ensworth Hospital at St. Joseph,Mo., Tuesday. On Wednesday forenoon she underwent an operation to remove a pressure on the brain, passing away during the operation. Lula had been a sufferer for a long time, but was one who did little complaining to her friends, so that the whole community was shocked to hear of her death. Her mother, her brother Tom, and Dell Hawk were with her in St. Joseph and returned home with the body last night. Funeral services at the Christian Church at 2:30 p. m. Friday.

OBITUARY ~ LULU FAY JAMESON

Lula Fay Jameson was born Nov. 27, 1889 near Alexis, Ill., and departed this life Sept. 12, 1917 at Ensworth Hospital, St. Joseph, Mo. aged 27 years, 9 months, 15 days.

She graduated from the Clearfield high school in 1903 after which she taught in a country school for a year. After a years attendance in college at Des Moines College, Des Moines, Iowa, she taught in the schools of Winterset, attempting to continue the following year but was prevented by failing health. After a year's rest and then filling a vacancy in the Clearfield school, she attended summer school at Drake University, Des Moines. She followed this by teaching three years in the Prescott schools. At this time she decided to study pharmacy and entered the State University at Iowa City, and would have completed her course in 1918 had she been privileged to remain. As a mere girl she became a member of the Baptist church, and was ever interested in the world's best life.

There survive her the mother, a sister, Mrs. Dell Hawk and a brother, Thomas, all of Clearfield. Her father died Feb. 27, 1913.

The funeral service was held at the Christian church at Clearfield,Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock Rev. J. W. Johnson the minister in charge, assisted by Rev. Field of the Baptist church. As the text read truly, "There is but a step between me and death." Interment was made in the Clearfield Cemetery.

The funeral services were largely attended, many friends coming from Tingley, Prescott and Lenox.
