Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Iowa
December 27, 1934

OBITUARY -- MRS. RALPH KLING.

1881 - 1934

Isa Boram, only daughter of Marcellus and Frances Boram, was born near Lesanville, July, 1881, and passed into life eternal on December 22, 1934, at her home near Mount Ayr, Iowa. Her age was 53 years, five months and one day.

Her life, with the exception of two years spent in New Mexico and Kansas, has been lived in Ringgold county. She obtained her education here and is well known in the community.

She was married to Ralph Kling at the parental home on February 26, 1902. To their home seven children were born. The children are Mrs. Velta Skinner of Kellerton, Ernest Kling of St. Joseph, Mo., Mrs. Ruby Rice of Mount Ayr, Evan Kling of St. Joseph, Mo., Mrs. Marcelene Mosier of Mount Ayr, and Everette in the Mount Ayr high school and Marjorie, the latter two being still at home.

Their home life was always one of love and sympathy between the members of the family.

Mrs. Kling joined the Methodist church at Lesanville early in life. When the church there was closed she transferred her membership to the Mount Ayr Methodist church.

While Mrs. Kling had not attended church much lately, she did not lose interest in her christian life. Her home life was the supreme interest with her and she did all she could do to make it a happy home. One of the fragrant memories of her father and mother is the fact that she was always kind and thoughtful of them and a very close bond existed between them. The body was taken just before the funeral to the parental home that it might rest for just a little while under the roof that she always loved so well.

Her sickness was of short duration, lasting only a week. Before this her health apparently was good and all that love and medical skill could do could not postpone the end. She passed peacefully from her home on December 22 at about five o'clock a.m.

In addition to the above named children, Mrs. Kling leaves to mourn her going her husband, an aged father and mother and seven grandchildren.

Sunset and evening star
And one clear call for me,
And may there be no moaning of the bar
When I put out to sea.
For such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound or foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep,
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell
And after that the dark.
And may there be no sadness of farewell
When I embark,

For tho from out this bourne of time and place,
The floods may bear me far,
I hope to meet my Pilot face to face,
When I have crossed the bar.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Methodist church in Mount Ayr, conducted by the pastor, Dr. M. R. Talley, and interment was in Rose Hill cemetery.

CARD OF THANKS

We are deeply grateful to our neighbors and friends for help and sympathy so generously bestowed during the illness and at the death of our loved one.

--Ralph Kling and family.
