The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1922

OBITUARY - MRS. JOHN J. LEPLEY.

Lepley gravestone.jpg Ida May LOWDER was born in Monroe county near Albia, Iowa, August 2nd, 1866, and was called by her Master to the Great Beyond, February 28, 1922 aged fifty-five years, six months and twenty-six days.

She came to Ringgold county in 1875 and has resided here until the time of her death at her home near Maloy.

She was united in marriage to John J. LEPLEY, June 9th, 1887. To this union was born seven children: Mrs. Mary K. GRAY, of Maloy; Mrs. Bessie M. HOOVER, of Blockton; John Roy, of Maloy; Emma Maude of Boulder, Colo.; J. Lee, of Clearfield; Nellie Agnes and Eunice Merle still at the parental home. The father and all the children are left to mourn her loss. She also leaves three small grandchildren - Richard and Margaret May GRAY and Maurine LEPLEY, who will greatly miss her.

Her life has been one of sacrifice and service for others. For the past several years she has been in very poor health always bearing her suffering patiently and cheerfully.

On February 18, she broke out with smallpox and was unable to combat this dreaded disease. She was conscious until the end and told those near her bedside she was going and bade them goodbye. She expressed a desire to see her children once more and said she was going. The peaceful expression which came over her face at the last, showed that she felt glad to leave the agony she had suffered here. She was a faithful wife and kind mother and will be missed by all who knew her. Her vacancy in the hearts and the home can never be forgotten.

NOTE: Ida May (LOWDER) LEPLEY was interred at Forrest Home Cemetery, Ringgold County, Iowa. John J. LEPLEY, husband of Ida May (LOWDER), was born in 1861, and died in 1952.
