about two years ago. He practiced for ten years at Tingley before coming to Clarinda.
Clarinda parks and sports teams
were Dr. KILLINGSWORTH'S hobbies. Few football games were placed with out his presence, no matter how cold the day, and
he took much personal interest in the boys who participated. Friends remember his early hours spent in improvment
of the city chautauqua grounds and other parks.
He is survived by a daughter, Miss Blanche KILLINGSWORTH of
Clarinda, a daughter-in-law, Mrs. Ruby KILLINGSWORTH, and grand-daughter, Mrs. Abbott MASON, both of Los Angeles,
