OBITUARY ~ WINIFRED KNOX

Winifred Knox, daughter of Howard and Mary Calkin Knox, was born September 25, 1909, on the family farm three miles west of Clearfield, Iowa, and passed away at the Clearview Home in Clearfield, Iowa, on November 1, 1993, at the age of 84 years, one month, and six days.

Winifred's education began in a country school, better known as Corn Bread College, and later attended Clearfield High School. After leaving high school, Winifred lived at home with her parents and became a homemaker. Winifred was a member of Greenwood Church, Southwest of Clearfield and of Greenwood Ladies Society. Later, she became a member of Clearfield United Methodist Church.

In November 1958, she moved with her parents to Lenox, Iowa. After their death, she continued to live there alone and attended the Lenox United Methodist Church. She enjoyed attending the Adult Sunday School Class and Lenox U.M.W.

Winifred enjoyed cooking, sewing, and attending to her flowers. She loved to make quilts. She especially enjoyed her great nieces, Shanda and Sherry Stephens and Anndee Huegel, and a great nephew Jeffrey Stephens, children of Ivan Stephens and Enid Stephens Huegel.

Winifred enjoyed celebrating birthdays. She was born on her father's birthday, so they shared their "big day" together. One year after his death, her great niece, Sherry Lynn Stephens arrived on September 25 and Winifred was so proud to share her birthday with her.

Winifred really enjoyed her neighbors in Lenox, especially the birthday coffees. She was always talking of the arrival of a little one in the neighborhood and kept us informed of their progress from birth till they were all grown up.

In August 1986, Winifred was diagnosed with having two inoperable brain tumors. She entered the Clearview Nursing Home in Clearfield, Iowa where she received excellent loving care for seven years.

Winifred was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Raub and Clifford and one sister Evelyn and a brother-in-law Wilson Stephens.

Survivors include a nephew, Ivan Stephens and wife Shirley, a niece Enid Huegel and husband Robert. Three great nieces, one great nephew and three great-great nephews, many cousins and friends.

Funeral services were held at 10:30 a.m. November 3, 1993, at the Clearfield United Methodist Church conducted by Rev. Al Rusk. Organist Nioma Gaule accompanied soloist Jane Whitmore. Wilson-Watson Funeral Home were in charge of the services.

Casketbearers were Ed Young, Carroll Baker, Glen Norton, Stanley Knox, John Lyddon, and Leroy Beggs.

Honorary Pallbearers were Don Keast, Sr., Bill Young, and Willis Wurster. Burial was Clearfield Cemetery.
