Clarinda, Iowa, 1920

OBITUARY - HARVEY F. McCOWEN.

Harvey F[ranklin]. McCOWEN passed away at his home at Tingley, Monday, Feb. 24, 1920. The sad news seemed almost incredible when it was heard by those of his friends in this [Clarinda] community who had not known of his sudden critical illness. His death was caused by pneumonia. He had suffered from influenza last year, but was stricken with pneumonia from the start of his illness a few days ago.

Mr. McCOWEN had lived all of his life in this community until about four years ago when he and Mrs. McCOWEN went to Tingley to make their home. They had a farm on the edge of that town.

Mr. McCOWEN was born Dec. 22, 1875, four miles northeast of Clarinda. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Noah [and Lucinda (GRINNELL)] McCOWEN.

He is survived by his widow, who was a Clarinda girl, Miss Nellie D. GOUDIE, also by his father, Noah McCOWEN, and two brothers, Jesse W. of Clarinda and James T. of Tingley.

The late Harvey McCOWEN formerly was a farmer just north of Clarinda for about eleven years and was a business man in this city, in the furniture and undertaking business. He was a junior member of the firm of McCOWEN & Son. They were located in the building of I. W. SHAMBAUGH on the south side of the square.

Harvey was a man of a happy, genial nature, and was good company. He was lively, wide-awake, industrious and enterprising. He was so healthy, robust, and so hearty in appearance that it seems all the more strange and unreal that he too has joined the "innumerable caravan." He long will live in the memory of many friends.

The remains of Mr. McCOWEN will be brought to this city this (Thursday) evening. The funeral will be held Friday afternoon at 2:30 at the home of his uncle, Sylvester McCOWN, at 622 North Fourteenth street in this city, Rev. J. M. WILLIAMS officiating. Burial will be in the Clarinda cemetery.
