OBITUARY ~ REUBEN CYRUS QUICK

Reuben Cyrus Quick was born in Indiana, December 20. 1852, died in Clearfield, Iowa, April 13, 1917, aged 64 years, 4 months, 23 days.

He left Indiana when 9 years old and came to Oskaloosa, Iowa. Here he was married March 11th, 1875, to Susan McDonough. To them were born two children, Effie Blanche, who died at the age of three, and Mrs. F. B. Catterson of Clearfield, Iowa.

They left Oskaloosa in 1895 and came to the farm in Gay township, Taylor county, Iowa, where they have since resided with the exception of three years spent in Blockton. They came to Clearfield in the spring of 1916.

Mr. Quick was for a number of years a member of the Gay Center Methodist church, but in later years he was identified with the Christian Scientists, in which faith he rejoiced to the last.

There survive him his wife, the daughter, two brothers, Chester Quick of Oskaloosa, Iowa, and Oliver Quick of Duluth, Minn.; one Sister, Mrs. Proudfit of Topeka, Kansas; one grandson, Bruce Catterson of Clearfield; and one great granddaughter. Mrs. Shellabarger, his niece, of Topeka, Kansas, was present at the funeral.

Mr. Quick was a kind and loving father and husband, a good neighbor and true friend, and will be greatly missed by all who knew him, especially by those nearest and dearest to him. Being a home-loving man and usually to be found there unless duty called him elsewhere.

Funeral services were held at the home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, in charge of Rev. J. W. Johnson of the Christian Church, the music being furnished by a mixed quartette of the church and a solo by Miss Opal Nelson. Interment was made in Clearfield Cemetery.
