OBITUARY ~ MARY ELIZABETH STAHL RUBY

Mary Elizabeth Stahl was born June 8th, 1856, in Jasper County,Iowa, and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Verna Nickel, near Clearfield, Iowa, on the 7th of April, 1919 her age being 62 years, 9 months and 29 days.

She was married to Johnathan Milborn Ruby in 1885. To this union was born six children, three dying in infancy. The husband died October 30th, 1897. The three remaining children are, Mrs. Verna Nickel, Mrs. Hattie Wentzel, and Clem Ruby, all of Clearfield, Iowa. There are six grand-children, and several nieces and nephews. She also leaves one sister, Mrs. A. S. Ruby, Indianola, Iowa; Mrs. Stahl,a sister-in-law of Ellendale , N. D.; Frank Chivington, Oelwein, Iowa,a boy she raised from infancy besides many other relatives and friends.

Mrs. Ruby united with the Methodist Episcopal church at the age of i4 years. She has always loved the church, and has done all she could for its advancement. She had no other expectation in life than that she would go homo to Glory, when she should be called from this earthy career. For n number of years her membership has been at Clearfield, coming here from Knowlton.

She will be missed by her relatives and friends. The last year has been rather trying for Mrs. Ruby. After the war claimed her son, Clem, she felt that her loneliness was almost more than she could bear yet she did her part willingly, and resigned herself to the will of her blessed Master. Ill health of the last few months left her too weak to combat the disease of pneumonia, and.thus she answered her call.

Funeral services were conducted at the Methodist Church by her pastor, Rev. C. A. Carlson, Tuesday afternoon at 2:30. Interment was in the Knowlton [Centenary] Cemetery. A large number of friends were at the cemetery, and the casket was opened there.
