  Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
April 4, 1918

OBITUARY ~ MARY CORNES McCULLOCH

Mary Cornes was born in Kent, England, June 12, 1848; died in Des Moines, Iowa, March 30th, 1918; aged sixty-nine years, nine months and eighteen days. When but two years of age she came with her parents to the United States, grew to womanhood at Marengo. Illinois, and came to the vicinity of Clearfield in 1838. About 1868 she married Judge J. M. McCulloch, who died September 11, 1902.

She is survived by two brothers: - John Cornes of Kansas City, Mo., and William II. Cornes of Aurora, Ill. and a nephew, Rev. Harry N. Cornes of Salinas, California.

In youth she improved the best educational advantages the community in which she lived afforded, and was for a number of years a successful school teacher.

She made a profession of her faith in Jesus when young in years. She became a member of the United Presbyterian church of Clearfield and has ever been an interested, faithful member. She was an enthusiast in Sabbath School work, being an instructor in it for many years. She was much interested in missionary work at home and abroad, being a faithful member of the W. M. S.

Though Clearfield has been considered home, yet on account of failing health, she has spent much of the last few years in other places. Her last visit here was made in December, when two happy weeks were spent among her old friends. Mrs. McCulloch, when here on her last visit, was seen to he failing in strength, but the news of her death brought a shock to us. Our sorrow is softened by the confidence that the dead who die in the Lord are truly blessed, and that she is now with her Lord whom she trusted and served.

The funeral was held in the United Presbyterian church Tuesday, April 2, at 2:30 p. m., conducted by the pastor; interment in the Clearfield Cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. William H. Cornes of Aurora, Illinois, accompanied the remains from Des Moines. Others coming from a distance were Mrs. Martha Johnson of Des Moines, Miss Maud Hamilton and Mrs. Minnie Nulph of Shannon City.
