Clearfield, Iowa
December 2, 1915

OBITUARY ~ Anna Parr Kerns

Anna Parr was born in Garden Grove, Decatur Co., Iowa, February 14th, 1896. She remained there with her parents till about 7 years of age, when the family moved to Clearfield, where she made her home till her marriage on February 10, 1915, to Mr. G. C. Kerns. The happy pair began life together on a farm at Conway Crossing. It was there that she took sick in the fall, and her condition gradually growing worse, she was removed to the Enaworth Hospital at St, Joseph, Missouri, where every attention that science and love could render was bestowed, but the end came on November 26th.

She became a member of the Christian Church when a mere girl, and was found in her place as often as her condition would permit,among the appointments of her Sunday school class and church. In all the hardships of her young life, Anna showed her sweet, cheerful disposition, and was much loved by her associates as well by relatives.

She lived but nineteen years, but lived that life so well that her influence will continue to live in the lives of those who knew her.

She is survived by her husband, her parents, five brothers, one sister, all of whom were present at the funeral except one brother, Tom, who lives in Mississippi.

The funeral service was held at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the Christian Church, the pastor, J. W. Johnson, giving: the sermon on the text, "He giveth his beloved sleep." The large crowd in attendance at the services attested to the respect and love that she enjoyed. It seems almost too sad to be true that such a young life is closed and that the sweet face shall not soon be seen again, but after the night comes the better day.
