OBITUARY ~ BELLE CLARK NICKLE
Mrs. Belle Nickle was born in Clinton Co., Indiana March 8th, 1840 and fell
asleep in her home in Bedford, Iowa January 25th, 1920. The span of her life
was almost three score and ten.
She was converted when just a little girl and united with the Methodist church
of which communion she remained a member until about 26 years ago when she and
her husband became members of the Christian Church at Clearfield, where they
made their home on a farm near the town for a number of years.
Seventeen years ago they moved to Bedford and at once placed their membership
with the Christian Church, but owing to ill health. Sister Nickle was not
permitted to enjoy an active life in the service as was her desire, but she
always encouraged others who were able to do so.
She was of a quiet, self sacrificing home loving disposition, and was ever
ready with a good word for every one.
Those who remain of her family now mourning her going are her husband, D. E.
Nickle, one son E. R. Nickle of Clearfield, two daughters, Mrs. Maymie Conning
of Clearfield and Miss Cecil Nickle of Bedford, also one sisters; Mrs. C. F.
Allen and one brother, F. R. Clark, both of Bedford. There are also eleven
grandchildren and three great grandchildren who with the others miss the
kindly face and pleasant words of grandmother. Another daughter was born to
Mrs. Nickle who fell asleep several years ago.
Funeral services were conducted from her home Wednesday morning January, 28,
by her minister, E.E. Lowe. Another service was held from the Christian Church
in Clearfield and interment was at Clearfield Cemetery.
