Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
March 26, 1925

OBITUARY ~ HATTIE BELLE (SMITH) MOREY

Hattie Belle Smith, daughter of James and Ruma Smith, was born south of Clearfield, Iowa, Oct. 10, 1874, and died March 23, 1925, aged 50 years, 5 months and 13 days. She spent her girlhood days in this community and received her education in our public schools. She united in marriage Nov. 22, 1896 to Russell Morey. To this union six children were born—Harry D. of Diagonal, Iowa, Mrs. Bernice Beatty of Creston, Iowa, V. Eugene, Dwight A., Russell and Avis of Clearfield, all of whom survive. The parents, one sister, Mrs. Stella Aldrich and one brother, Earl having preceded her.

Mrs. Morey’s death came as a great shock to the entire community, for while it was generally know that she was ill, yet no one realized the graveness of her case for she was a patient sufferer, never complaining.

Practically all of her life was spent in Taylor and Ringgold counties, excepting three years when the family resided at Tuttle, Oklahoma, and one year at Kent, Iowa. The family had but recently moved to their new home two and one half mile north of Clearfield.

Mrs. Morey was a devoted wife and loving mother. Home was always first with her, for altho her physical body was often racked with intense suffering, her heart yearned to minister to others. She was thotful and always endeavored to teach a high standard of living. One of her well known sayings was, "Right will prevail". She was an earnest Christian, having given her heart to the Saviour in early girlhood, uniting with the Baptist Church. In 1915 she transferred her membership to the U. P. Church. There is true consolation in the thot that she exemplified all thru life the faith and virtues of a good life.

Mrs. Morey was a teacher of exceptional ability, during her six years in the school room. She was a continuous reader and took a great interest in the issues of the times. Her high aim was an education for her children, taking a keen interest in their advancement and her leadings are so implanted in those associated with her that they will always be remembered.

To mourn her untimely departure are the heart-broken husband, four sons, two daughters, and five grandchildren also three sisters, Mrs. Lida Flint of Humbolt, Kansas; Mrs Ida Bridgewater of Norman, Okla.; Mrs. Ella Fitch of Lorimor, Iowa. Four brothers. Henry Smith of Danville, Ill., George B, and Bert I. of Mt. Ayr, and Lee of Clearfield, a number of nephews and nieces and other relatives besides many friends.

To the grief stricken family, relatives and friends who mourn not alone for the departed one, the deepest sympathy is extended.

In attendance at the funeral besides the immediate family was Mrs Lida Flint of Humbolt, Kansas; Mr. and Mrs Henry Smith of Danville Ill. ; Mr. and Mrs. A. I. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Don Smith of Mt. Ayr; Mr. and Mrs John Fitch and daughter Imogene, and Mr. and Mrs. Karl Denton and family of Lorimor, Iowa; Mr. Mart Morey of Grand Junction, Iowa.

Funeral services was held at the home Wednesday, at 2:00 p. m. conducted by Rev. Muir. Interment was made in Clearfield Cemetery.
