Howard Weldon MEADOWS, son of John Wesley and Eutoka McCLANAHAN MEADOWS, was born in Mount Ayr, Iowa, September 8, 1904, and passed away August 28, 1986, at the Clearview Nursing Home in Mount Ayr following a lengthy illness.

Weldon lived almost all his life in Kellerton, Iowa. He was united in marriage to Louise DAVIS in 1930, and to this union four children were born, Donald, Roland, Janice and Ann.

Weldon and his brother Jamie had a business operating an automobile repair shop until his illness in 1959. He was a member of the Kellerton School Board for many years. He was a member of the Christian Church as a child and a member of the Methodist church in his adult life.

Weldon was a devoted husband and father and he courageiously accepted his long illness.

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Roland; brothers Lowell and Jamie, and great-granddaughter Sarah ALLEN.

Left to cherish his memory are his son, Donald and daughter-in-law, Virginia, of Des Moines, Iowa; daughter, Janice and son-in-law, Gerald FARLEY of Mount Prospect, Illinois; daughter Ann and son-in-law, Kenneth DUNSHEE of Glen Burnie, Maryland; grandchildren: Michael, Brent and Laura MEADOWS of Des Moines, David FARLEY of Chicago, Illinois, Susan ALLEN of Peoria, Ill., Richard DUNSHEE of College Park, Maryland, Sandra CLAMPITT of Baltimore, Md., and three great-grandchildren, Timothy and Rebekah ALLEN and Jodi CLAMPITT.

Services were held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, August 30, 1986, at the United Methodist Church in Kellerton, conducted by the Rev. Douglas HARDING. Music was provided by Betty Jean TRIMBLE, organist, and Camille and Richard JACKSON.
