Obituary

[Page 2] Lowell Willard, third son of John Wesey (sic) and Effa E. Meadows, was born Aug. 20, 1907, in Kellerton, Ringgold county, Iowa, and departed this life May 19, 1961, at the age of 53 years, 8 months, and 29 days.

He joined the Kellerton Christian church at an early age and was a life-long member.

"Cappie," or "Cap," as he was familiarly known, graduated from Kellerton high school in 1926, and lived in this community the majority of his life. He was a great lover of nature and his favorite pleasure was relaxation in the outdoors. He spent a great many hours of his life working with the soil and the elements of nature.

On Dec. 28, 1935 he was united in marriage to Paulyne Elberta Poush at Kirk Manor in Leon, Iowa. To this union were born four children: Jimmie Edward and John Eldon, both students at Northwest Missouri State college; Mrs. Joan Ellen Ochoa of Kansas city, Mo.; and Jeannie Eleanor, a junior at Grand Valley high school.

He was grandfather to Joseph Donald Ochoa, son of Jospeh G. and Joan Ochoa.

Also surviving are two brothers, Weldon and Jamie, both of Kellerton; other relatives and many friends.

Cap was well known and will be remembered for his sincerity and integrity. He as a loving and devoted husband and father. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.

[Funeral services were held May 21, 1961, at the Christian Church, Kellerton, and interment was made at Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton.]
