The Mount Ayr Record, 1926

DEATH of MRS. A. D. KELLEY.

Profound sorrow filled the hearts of the people of the community Friday afternoon when it was announced that Mrs. A. D. KELLEY had died suddenly at the home in north Mount Ayr. Mrs. KELLEY had been in ill health for the past ten years, but during recent months her illness was no so acute and up until a few hours before her death she was in good spirits and seemed to be improving. The end came suddenly and without warning and was due to heart disease. The unrestrained sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved husband and children.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Church of Christ, being conducted by the pastor, Rev. Ross WILLIAMS. The funeral was largely attended, members of the Rebekah, Royal Neighbors and I.O.O.F. lodges attending in a body, and the floral offerings were profuse and beautiful. The burial was in Rose Hill cemetery, the ritualistic service of the Rebekah lodge being conducted at the grave.

Kitty May WELLS was born in Decatur county, Iowa, January 7, 1882, and died at the home in Mount Ayr, Iowa, May 28, 1926, aged 44 years, four months and 21 days. On August 12, 1903, she was united in marriage with A. D. [Arlington Drew] KELLEY at Davis City, Iowa. Four children were born to them - Earl W., Clifton E., Wilma and Beatrice. One son, Clifton E., died in infancy, and the other children with the husband and father mourn the death of a devoted wife and mother. The family lived in Decatur county until five years ago when they moved to Mount Ayr. Mrs. KELLEY united with the Church of Christ in 1916 and her life reflected the christian character. She was a member of the Rebekah and Royal Neighbor lodges. When health permitted she was active in the work of the church and the lodges in which she held membership. Besides the immediate family she is survived by two sisters and three brothers, many other relatives and a host of friends, for all who knew Mrs. KELLEY loved and respected her.

CARD OF THANKS.

For kindness of neighbors and friends, so generously bestowed during the illness and on the occasion of the death and funeral of our loved one, we are profoundly grateful.
A. D. KELLEY AND CHILDREN
