Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
September 21, 1916

OBITUARY ~ INEZ McMILLEN PUGH

Mrs. Inez McMillen Pugh was born March 6th, 1866, in Warren Co,, Illinois, and died at her home in Clearfield, Iowa, Saturday morning, Sept. 16, 1916 aged 50 years, 6 months and 10 days. She came with her parents to Ringgold County when a young girl, and has resided since in the same vicinity, living in Clearfield the last three years.

On January 14th, 1886, she was united in marriage to Henry J. Pugh, and for thirty years walked by his side, the help, cheer, and inspiration of his life. Two daughters, Letha and Pearl, survive her, Eva preceded her in death five and a half years ago. There are four grandchildren.

She is survived of her own near kindred, by two brothers and one sister, viz., John H. McMillen of Lost Springs, Kan.; William McMillen of Port Angeles, Wash., and Mrs. May Stamper of Burlington, Colorado. All these with a host of friends and neighbors mourn today the loss of one who loved them, and in a life of loving ministry tried to do them good.

She has been a consistent loyal member of the United Presbyterian church of Clearfield for about fifteen years, was connected with the Women's Missionary Society and Sabbath School. She was also an active member of the W. C. T. U. All who knew her loved her, but only those whose lives were brought near to her came to know the sweetness and beauty of her character, of whom Solomon wrote saying: "A worthy woman who can find? Her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband trusteth in her. She doeth them good and not evil, all the days of her life. She stretcheth out hand to the poor; the law of kindness is on her tongue. Her children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also praiseth her. Grace is deceitful, and beauty vain; but a woman that feareth Jehovah she shall be praised."

The funeral was held in the late home, and was conducted by her pastor, the Rev. T. R. Aikin. The music furnished by the choir of the of the United Presbyterian church was appropriate, the floral tributes were many and beautiful. Interment in the Clearfield cemetery. The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved.
