OBITUARY ~ MARGARET AMELIA (GELVIN) MOFFETT

Funeral services for Mrs. Warren Moffett were held last Thursday afternoon, December 6th at 2:00 o'clock in the United Presbyterian church, her pastor, Rev. H. B. Hutchman officiating. A quartet composed of Guy Henderson, Mrs. J. M. Stephenson, Mrs. Marta Young and E. C. Heaton sang, with Miss Mary Young, accompanying on the piano. Margaret Amelia Gelvin was born in Crawford county, Pennsylvania June 21, 1858, and died at her home in Clearfield, Iowa December 3, 1934, aged 76 years, 5 months and 12 days. She moved to Illinois with her parents in 1865 and the next year to Washington County, Iowa. In 1874 they came to Taylor county and located on a farm north of Clearfield, and Mrs. Moffett has since resided here. On October 2, 1879 she was married to Warren Moffett and they resided until 1881 on a farm near by, moving then into Clearfield. She early gave her life to Christ and united with the Platte Valley united Presbyterian church, later transferring her membership to Clearfield church of which she was a charter member. She greatly enjoyed the celebration of the church bicentennial celebration. Mrs. Moffett was a true Christian, always ready to do a kind deed, or speak a kind word whenever opportunity offered, a loving wife and mother, and a neighbor who will be greatly missed in the community. Her influence will always live for good in lives of those with whom she was associated. She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband, her daughter, Faye, a teacher in the schools of Harrisonburg, Illinois her son Ross of Provincetown, Massachusetts, two grandchildren, two sisters, Mrs. Jennie Young of Coin, la., and Mrs. Nan Davis of Beaver City, Nebraska and two brothers, Hugh and James Gelvin of Clearfield, several nieces and nephews and many friends. Interment was in Clearfield cemetery.
