The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1928

OBITUARY - MILDRED LUCILE SCHLAPIA.

M. Schlapia gravestone.jpg Mildred Lucile CAMPBELL was born January 16,1911, in Taylor county, Iowa, near Athelston. She lived in that vicinity until at the age of six she moved with her parents to Benton and has lived in this community ever since.

Practically all of her school days were spent in the Benton schools. She was always interested in her studies, ranked high in her classes and was a favorite among her classmates. She graduated in 1927 at the age of sixteen. She attended the Methodist Sunday school and taught one of the intermediate classes.

On June 11, 1928, she was married to Ray SCHLAPIA. They established a home in Benton and were ideally happy, she putting forth every effort to make her home bright, cheerful and homelike.

On October 31, at 9:34 a. m. she was killed [instantly] in an accident [when her auto was hit by a K&W train] at Benton at the age of seventeen years, nine months and 15 days, leaving an ache in the hearts of her family and friends.

She leaves her husband, her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. O. T. CAMPBELL, a brother Donald at Benton, a sister, Mrs. Don WRIGHT of Garden City, Kan., Wilma, Robert and Richard at home and one little nephew, Leland Lloyd CAMPBELL. Also her grandparents, several aunts, uncles and cousins and a host of very dear friends.

Mildred was of a very happy disposition, always cheerful and had a smile for everyone and will be sadly missed by all that knew her. Her untimely and tragic death has cast a gloom over the entire community. She is gone but will never be forgotten.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church in Benton November 3, conducted by Rev. Charlie E. GRAHAM and interment was in Benton cemetery.

Card of Thanks.

For the many acts of kindness and sympathy generously bestowed on the occasion of the deathand funeral of our loved one we are profoundly grateful to our neighbors and friends. -- Donald CAMPBELL and family, Ray SCHLAPIA, Mr. and Mrs. O. T. CAMPBELL and family.
