OBITUARY ~ ELIZA ISADORA (GOLDER) JENKINS

Eliza Isadora Golder was born on April 10,1842, in Woodstock, Illinois. She passed away March 6, 1935 at Colville, Washington, at the home of her daughter, Ella Golder, aged nearly 93 years.

She moved with her parents at the age of eight years to Sterling, III. She was married to Mr. Lewis C. Jenkins in 1862. To the union, ten children were born, of whom six are still living:—Wm. A. Jenkins, of Rockport, Missouri; Lottie Bowen-Emmitt of San Angelo, Texas; Ella Golder, Colville, Wash.; Robert Jenkins, of Douglas, Wyo.; Lewis Jenkins of Helena, Arkansas; and Mrs. Alice Creekmore, Amarillo, Texas. She has eight grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.

She was the last of her fathers family to go hence. In 1880, she moved with her family to a farm in Gay Township, Taylor county, Iowa, where they resided for about a quarter century. They then made their home in Clearfield until about 5 years after her husband's death in August, 1920. Since that time she has made her home with Mr and Mrs. John F. Golder, where she was at the time of her death.

Mrs. Jenkins was always a consistent Christian, loving her church next to her God and her family. She had been a member of the M. E. Church of Clearfield for many years.

The body was brought back to Iowa and to Clearfield that its final rest might be in the family lot in Clearfield Cemetery. Funeral services were held in the Methodist church, at 2:00 on Monday, March 11th, conducted by the Rev. John C. Turner. Beautiful flowers attested the love of relatives and friends. Singing was by a quartet—Mrs. J. M. Stephenson, Mrs. A. J. Abarr, Messrs. E. C. Heaton and L. H. Andrews. Pallbearers were L. H. Andrews, U. S. Grant, J. E. Duncan. Alpha Clark, J. A. Cochran, Joe Cooper and H. 0. Calkin.
