OBITUARY ~ ROTH B. NEVILL

Roth B. Nevill, son of J. A. (Bert) and Rose Doherty Nevill, was born in Ringgold County, Iowa near the town of Clearfield on April 25, 1902. He died at the Greater Community Hospital in Creston on Sunday morning, July 26 at the age of seventy-nine years, three months and one day.

Roth spent his early childhood at Argyle in Lee County, Iowa and attended Hillside School in Ringgold County.

He was united in marriage with Esther Ruth Cole of Diagonal, Iowa on March 7, 1923 at Creston. The couple made their home in Clearfield where they became an active part of the community.

Roth operated the Clearfield Ice Company and clerked at Harriman's Grocery during the 1920's. He then operated a dairy farm, hand milking his cows and delivering raw milk to homes and business places. He later worked with Dr. A. J. Abarr, Clearfield veterinarian, before becoming an employee of Spurrier Service Station in Clearfield in 1942. His health forced him to retire in June of 1980.

Roth entered the Clearview Nursing Home at Clearfield in December of 1980 and then moved to an apartment in Creston in early June. He was a patient in the hospital for observation and tests, however, his death was quite sudden.

Preceding him in death were his beloved wife, Ruth in June of 1979, his parents and a son-in-law, Marvin Gaule.

Survivors include his daughters, Eula Jean Gaule of Mt. Ayr, Verla Dean Main and husband, Houston of Amarillo, Texas, and Rosalie Hamilton and husband, James of Creston; eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren, Mr. and Mrs. Ellis Main and Brent of Amarillo. Texas, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Beadel, Gina and Bob of Lenox, Mr. and Mrs. Curtis Gaule, Shane and Shilah of Broomfield, Colorado.

Lola Knox of Lenox and Reva Parkhurst and husband, Will of Clearfield, several in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Roth was a loving husband and father. He took great pride in each of his grandchildren. A true gentleman, he was always willing to lend a hand wherever help was needed. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Services were held Wednesday, July 29 at the United Methodist Church in Clearfield at 1:30 p.m. Pastor Kevin Hoffman officiated.

Music was by Patty Parrish, organist, and Carol Ann Kinder, vocalist.

Casket bearers were Richard Spurrier, Gilbert Shaffer, Willis Wurster, John Combs, Vernie Horton, and Ivan Bennett.

Interment was in the Clearfield Cemetery at Clearfield.
