Ringgold Record, 1897

OBITUARY.

William Clarence KISINGER was born near Wheatland, Clinton county, Iowa, June 28, 1861. When about 8 years of age he moved with his parents to Wilton Junction, Iowa, where he grew to manhood. In 1890 he went to Cedar Rapids. He was married Nov. 15, 1891, to Eva J. NEEDLES. After a few months' residence in Chicago, they came to Mt. Ayr, Iowa, where he passed the remainder of his life. In the winter of 1895 he and his wife united with the First Presbyterian church of Mt. Ayr. While of a reticent disposition, he was always a faithful Christian, a kind husband and father, and during all his protracted sickness was very patient, expressing himself as ready and willing to go when the Lord should call. He died October 21, 1897.

The remains were conveyed to Wilton Junction [Muscatine County, Iowa] for interment in pursuance to his ante-mortem request, and there, at the home of his parents, which in youth and young manhood he loved so well, the funeral was held Oct. 23. A large number of his friends and comrades were present to pay their respects to one who in life they so highly esteemed. The city fire department, of which he was formerly a devoted member, attended in a body. Mementoes of fresh flowers, the gifts of friends, were laid upon the casket. The services were conducted in a very impressive manner by Rev. J. F. BARNETT. The interment was in the family lot in beautiful Oak Dale cemetery. He leaves to mourn his early departure the stricken wife, two sons, George Edward and Clarence Richard, his aged parents and five sisters, Mrs. R. W. VANCE of Herrington, Kan.; Mrs. J. B. SULLIVAN of Clarksville, Iowa; Mrs. J. F. JAYNE of Wilton Junction, Iowa; Mrs. A. DUNCAN of Kansas City, Kan.; Mrs. C. P. TOWNSEND of Chicago.

"Our Father, which are in Heaven
A whisper soft – ‘tis but a breath –
From lips that suddenly grow white,
And cease to move, in the silent night
Where stands the great white angel, Death.
‘Tis the end of toil and strife and care.
The soul hath no further need of prayer."
