The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1928

RESPECTED CITIZEN CALLED BY DEATH

Jasper PRICE, Resident of County 42 Years,
Dies in St. Joseph, Mo., Hospital.

J. Price gravestone.jpg Another respected citizen of Ringgold county was called to his reward Friday, when Jasper Price, for 42 years a resident of Liberty township, passed peacefully away at a hospital in St. Joseph, Mo. Mr. PRICE had been in declining health for several years and his critical illness covered a period of several weeks. Two weeks before his death he was taken to the hospital in the hope that a surgical operation would bring relief, but he gradually declined until the end.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the home, being conducted by Rev. C. L. THOMAS, pastor of the Tingley Methodist church, and the body was laid to rest in Rose Hill cemetery at Mount Ayr. The funeral was largely attended by neighbors and friends who came to pay tribute of respect to the memory of one whose life commanded the respect of all his acquaintances.

Jasper W. Price, son of William and Catherine PRICE, was born in Wayne county, Iowa, March 10, 1858, and departed this life July the 20th, 1928, at the St. Joseph hospital in St. Joseph, Mo., at the age of 70 years, four months and ten days. He grew to manhood in Wayne county and received his education in the schools of that county.

In the year 1880 he was united in marriage to Mary ROBINSON and of this union were born four children. The wife and two children preceded him in death. March 5, 1891, he again united in marriage to Nannie BUCHANAN. He leaves to mourn his departure his present wife, his son William, of Liberty township, one daughter, Mrs. L. E. POLLOCK, of Delta, Colo., one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth MORGAN, of Humeston, Iowa, six grandchildren, one great-grandchild, nieces and nephews and a host of other friends.

His wife and son tenderly cared for him through his long sickness and were present when he passed away. In the year 1882 he came with his parents to Ringgold county and located on the home farm where he lived with the exception of two years, one spent at Hemings Ford, Neb., and one north of Tingley, Iowa. For thirty-five years he had lived at his present home.

In 1915 under the ministry of Rev. PARKER he was converted and became a member of the Wishard chapel. He was a regular attendant at the church services until his health failed and would no longer permit his going. Although not able to take an active part in the church services, his faith in God was always strong. He did not fear death but said he was ready to go when the Lord called. He was a member of two fraternal orders, the I.O.O.F. and Modern Woodman.

CARD OF THANKS.

For every kindness shown by neighbors and friends during the illness and on the occasion of the death and funeral of our husband and father we are grateful. We wish especially to thank the members of the Ladies' Aid society, members of the I.O.O.F., the hospital attendants and all who were so thoughtful and kind.

- Mrs. PRICE and children.

NOTE: Mary (ROBINSON), first wife of Jasper W. PRICE, was born in 1858, and died in 1886 with interment at Johnston Cemetery near Kellerton, Ringgold County, Iowa.
