OBITUARY ~ ANNA B. (LARSON) HEPPERLY
Anna B. Larson was born in Sweden, April 25th, 1864, and suddenly departed this life at her home Sept. 4th, 1921, at the age of 57 yrs, 4 mo and 9 days.
She came with her parents to America in 1870 and settled at Craven, Ill., where she spent her early life, attaining her education in normal and college work in Ill., fitting herself for teaching, and after teaching there for sometime came west to Nebraska, afterwards coming to Iowa to the home of her sister, Mrs. Wolford, and taught here for some time.
She was married to John Hepperly Nov. 27, 1894 near Clearfield and has since made her home in this vicinity. To this union were born five children two of whom proceeded her in death, one infant and one son Ronald dying at the age of 5 years.
Mrs. Hepperly united with the M. E. church while in Ill. and after coming to Iowa placed her membership with the Clearfield Methodist church where she has been a faithful member ever since, being an active worker in both Sunday School and church services.
Suddenly Sunday evening while attending to her home duties she was called by her maker to cease this life's work, thus closed the life of one of God's children who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was a faithful mother and companion and ever ready in her quiet way to lift her share of the load and do the best she could.
She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband John Hepperly, three children, Verna, Harland and Jody all at home, two sisters, Mrs. Wolford of Clearfield, Miss Larson of Galesburg, Ill., and two brothers, Peter and Manil Larson of Galesburg, besides other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were held in the Methodist Church on Wednesday at 2 p. m. Rev. Douglass officiated. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful. Interment in the Clearfield Cemetery.
