OBITUARY - ORESTA MAY (COVERDELL) MAUDLIN

Oresta May, eldest child of William Franklin and Sarah Elizabeth COVERDELL, was born May 18, 1883, in Worth County, MO., where she grew to womanhood and spent her entire life, with exception of eleven months, which was spent in [Ringgold County] Iowa.

She was united in marriage to James W. MAUDLIN November 27, 1898. To this union were born nine children, two dying in infancy. Mrs. MAUDLIN has been afflicted for more than two years and has suffered much. Her husband and family were very good and kind to her through her entire sickness and everything was done for her to restore her to health that could be done. She passed away the evening of December 28, 1937 at her hme northeast of Grant City, at the age of 54 years, 7 months and 10 days.

At the age of 12 years she confessed her faith in Christ and united with the Batpist church, then northeast of Grant City. And in 1920 she changed her membership to the United Brethren church at Grand River Chapel, known by some as Fetchall, where she remained a member in good standing the rest of her life. She filled some important placed in the church and Sunday School, such as Superintendent, teacher and president of the Womens Legion Auxiliary of Grant City and of the Irena Willing Workers club and will be greatly missed in her community. No greater tribute can be paid to her than that she was a wonderful mother, a kind and devoted wife, a true friend, and a devout christian.

Besides her faithful companion, she leaves to mourn: two daughters, Clida A. FLETCHALL, of Grant City and Doris B. of the home; four sons, John F. and Voleny C. of Grant City; Lodus W., James Willard and Marion Joel at home; seven grandchildren; three brothers, G. F. COVERDEL (sic) of Oregon; M. P. COVERDELL of La Plata, N.M., and Vern A. COVERDELL of Sterling, Colo., with other relatives and friends.

At 12:45 p.m., December 31, 1937, the body was taken from the Prugh Funeral Home to the M.E. church in Grant City where the funeral service was held, conducted by Rev. Perry E. HENRY, assisted by Rev. C. E. OLSON, pastor of the M.E. church. Those who sang were Mrs. E. E. YETTER, Mrs. E. H. STEVENS, Mrs. Geo. BALES and Mrs. C. E. OLSON, with Mrs. Allen ROBERTSON at the piano. Pall bearers were members of the American legion. Burial was in the Middle Fork Cemetery [Ringgold County, Iowa], beside their two little children. May the Lord comfort the hearts of all who mourn.
