She was a child who had a smile for everybody, and even in her illness, greeted those who so tenderly cared for her, with a smile. She leaves her parents, three sisters, Lila Ruth, Lena Mae, and Edna Lee, and one brother, Earl Franklin, her grand-parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. SAGE, and her aunt, Mildred SAGE of Clearfield, and many more relatives and friends to mourn her early death. Funeral services were conducted in the Clearfield Christian church by Rev.

A quartette from Sheridan: Mr. and Mrs. WATSON, Mrs. CHURCHILL, and Mr. YOUNG, sang and the pianist was from Sheridan also. Floral offerings were beautiful. Interment was in the Clearfield cemetery.

Not now but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land -
We'll read the meaning of our tears,
Sometime, somewhere, we'll understand.
