OBITUARY ~ FRED LEON KERNS

Fred Leon Kerns was born December 3rd 1891 near Gravity, Iowa, and passed away at the Iowa Sanitarium following a serious operation, August 31, 1925, at the age of 38 years, six months, twenty-eight days. His home during these years has been in the vicinity of Clearfield and Gravity.

On July 17, 1917 he was united in marriage to Lizzie C. Brown. To this union were born three boys, the one being seven years old the day of his fatherís death. The twins are five years old.

Mr. Kerns was a kind and loving husband, an affectionate father, and was very highly esteemed in the community for his upright life. He leaves to mourn a faithful companion and his three little boys. His father and mother also survive. Four brothers, Walter, Roy, Guy and Harold, and five sisters, Mrs. John King, Mrs. Otto Atkin, Mrs. Ernest Huber, Mrs. Elmo Grace and Helen sorrow in the untimely death of their brother. A number of other relatives and a host of friends feel keenly the loss of a man so highly respected in his community.

The funeral services were conducted from the Methodist church of Sharpsburg by Elder C. A. Scriven of Nevada, assisted by the local M. E. pastor. The body was laid to rest in the Clearfield cemetery to await the call of the Life-giver. The high personal regard in which the multitude of friends held Mr. Kerns was evidenced by the large and beautiful floral arrangements.
