OBITUARY ~ CORA JANE (BROWN) NICKLE

On Feb. 9, 1885, a baby daughter came to bless the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Brown, residing southeast of Clearfield, and they named her Cora Jane. For seven years she played about the farm home, then the family moved into Clearfield where childhood bloomed into glorious womanhood nourished by home, school, and friends. In the days of youth a friendship ripened into love, and on Feb. 18, 1905, Cora gave her life into the keeping of Reed Nickle. Their marriage was truly heaven blessed. To their home came four children, J. D. who resides on the home farm, Violet, Maurine and Audrey.

Early in her youth Mrs. Nickle began to take an interest in spiritual things, and when a girl of eleven, she confessed her Savior, whom she has heard all of her children confess, and grow in Christian grace. At her confession she joined the United Presbyterian church, then about ten years ago, transferred her membership to the Christian church.

She took a deep interest in church activities, concerned for its welfare, anxious to do her part whenever duty called. We will not only miss her presence, but a large place, in the church life will be vacant. We are left a fine heritage of service rendered, and the example of a Christian mother and neighbor.

It seems only a dream, for just a few days ago she was with us in our church services and about our city, but what are we to think to fathom or change the purpose of the Almighty who bestows only to take away. On Wednesday she was taken to the hospital in St. Joseph where an operation was performed, but no skill could relieve her suffering, nor aid the love of her dear ones who were at her bedside or the prayers of her friends avail, but on Thursday eve, Oct. 22nd, as the day ended and twilight was spreading its wings about us, God came and took her, having permitted her to enjoy the fellowship of this life for 40 years, 8 months and 13 days.

Death claimed no victory oer this brave soldier of life. A sufferer for years, she was obedient to those trying faithfully to restore her health. She clung to life and rallied for it when all others had given up hope, but when hope passed she knew she must soon leave home and loved ones, no dread or doubt assailed her faith. She calmly waited for the messenger. Heaven is nearer and more intimate now because she is there, and over beyond these few dreary years that lie ahead, in the glory of her smile and her beckoning arms.

She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, four children, J. D., Violet, Maurine and Audrey, two brothers, Milton and Herman Brown of Clearfield, two sisters, Mrs. Archie Calkin of Clearfield and Mrs. C. B. Ouderkick of Benton. These and a host of other relatives and friends are left in sorrow by her departure.

Funeral services were held at the Christian Church on Sunday afternoon. Pastors Underwood, Johnson and Matthews joining in the same, the first named giving the address. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
