Floy Edna MATHIS, daughter of Ida Bell and John WHITE, was born in Ringgold County on August 29, 1897, and died of heart failure on Wednesday, March 6, 1985. She spent her childhood in Iowa, and later moved to Missouri, then back to Iowa.

On July 23, 1914 she was united in marriage to Vern MATHIS. Three daughters were born to this union, Donella, Oma, and Cleta. She also raised two grandchildren, Elaine BOYER and Lavon MINNICK, whom she loved as her own.

She made her home in Mount Ayr after the death of her husband, Verne. When her health failed she moved to Clearview Home. Early in life she was faithful to God and was very active in church until her health failed.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Verne and three brothers, John, Weldon, and Samuel.

Left to cherish her memory are her three daughters, Donella UHLENHOFF and husband of Greene, Iowa; Oma WATTS and husband of Bedford, Iowa; and Cleta REULING of Omaha, Nebraska; and two granddaughters she raised, Elaine BOYER of Lamoni, and Lavon MINNICK. Other grandchildren are Marvin, Betty Jo, Eileen, Kay, and Sarafine; her two sisters, Pearl MICKAEL of Kellerton, and Bertha BOWEN of Eagleville, Mo., and two sisters-in-law, Wilma WHITE of Kellerton and Alice WHITE of Pocahontas, Iowa; a brother-in-law, Otha BOWEN of Eagleville, Mo. and several great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

Her family and friends will remember her as a kind and considerate loved one and she will be missed by all who loved her.
