OBITUARY ~ LEWIS LOWN

Lewis Lown, a resident of the Clearfield and Lenox communities his entire life, died Sunday evening about 8:30 o'clock at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Bert Archibald at the age of 89 years, 8 months and 4 days. Mr. Lown had been in failing health for a number of years and had been confined to his bed during the past year, suffering from heart trouble.

Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. McKenzie of Clearfield, assisted by the Rev. E. F. Hagee of Lenox at the Calvary church Tuesday afternoon. Interment was made in the Clearfield cemetery.

Lewis Lown, son of Philip and Martha Lown, was born in Knox county, Illinois, February 9, 1851. He grew to manhood in the farming vicinity of Elmwood, and on June 16, he was married to Carrie Wilcox of Elmwood. In 1884 they moved to Taylor County, Iowa, which has since been his home. To his union three children were born; Mrs. Bert Archibald of Lenox; Robert Glenn, who died in infancy, and Ruth Geraldine of Lenox. Mr. Lown was one of the pioneer members of the Clearfield Methodist church until they moved to the Calvary neighborhood. Here he attended services regularly as long as his health permitted.

For the past ten years he had made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Bert Archibald where all that loving hands could be attributed to his comfort and welfare. He is survived by his two daughters, three grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends.
