Murdock, and returned to Ill., where they made their home for two years, then moving back to Iowa where she has since resided in or near Clearfield. Her husband preceded her in death by more than six years.

To this union were born two childrenóRaymond B. Murdock and Mildred McMath, both of Clearfield. She united with the Baptist Church when just a young girl, and was always a faithful member and a loyal worker as long as her health permitted. The last six years of her life she was confined to her home, an invalid, but was always so cheerful, and enjoyed her friends and neighbors coming in to see her.

She leaves to mourn her loss, her son: Raymond Murdock and family, her daughter, Mildred McMath arid family; two sisters, Mrs.. Ada Spurrier, Long Beach, Calif; and Mrs. Delia Lyddon of Clearfield two brothers, Chester Bowen of Ainsworth, Neb., and Edwin Bowen of Clearfield; and besides these are nieces and nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.
