OBITUARY ~ CARRIE BROOKS (WILCOX) LOWN
Carrie Brooks Wilcox, daughter of Hubert and Jane Wilcox, was born near Brimfield, Ill., May 23, 1862 and departed this life Feb. 17, 1925, being 62 years, 8 months, and 24 days of age. She was married June 10, 1880 to Lewis Lown. To this union was born three children, Mrs. Elna Archibald, Robert Glenn, and Ruth Geraldine. Mrs. Archibald and Ruth were at her bedside at the time of her death, while Robert Glenn passed on to the Other world in infancy.
Mrs. Lown united with the Bethel Methodist Church of Ill. in early girlhood and remained a member there until her removal to Clearfield to which place she transferred her membership. Later she united with the Calvary M. E Church and remained a consecrated member until the time of her death.
She is survived by her husband, two daughters, one brother, three sisters and three grandchildren.
Thus ends the life of one who suffered intensely for many years. Yet thru all her suffering she displayed remarkable courage and patience, always taking a keen interest in the affairs of the community. She was always willing and anxious to do anything that she might be spared to her home and loved ones.
In her long life of suffering she never lost faith in her Heavenly Father, who is the Comforter of all who seek Him.
The funeral was held in the Clearfield Methodist church, Thursday, Feb. 19, at 2 p. m. Services were conducted by the pastor, Rev, A. J. Matthews. There was a very large assemblage of friends, especially of the Calvary community where the deceased has resided for a long time. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
