The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1917

OBITUARY.

May 23, 1917 -- Lois Lavon SIPLE, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. SIPLE, was born Aug. 30, 1900, at Kellerton and departed this life at Omaha, Nebraska, May 13th at the age of 16 years, 9 months, and 17 days. About a year ago she was stricken with appendicitis from which she did not permanently recover. Her last sickness extended over a period of three months. All that loving hands and medical skill could do was done for her. Lavon was a beautiful girl and had a gentle and loving disposition that won many friends for herself. She received many beautiful flowers as token of the friendship and high esteem in which she was held. The Kellerton high school in which she would have graduated next year, was dismissed in her honor and attended in a body. Ten of her classmates and girl friends acted as pall bearers and flower girls. The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church Tuesday at 2:30 conducted by Rev. MITCHELL and the body was laid to rest in the Maple Row Cemetery. The family has the sympathy of the entire community in this time of sadness.

NOTE: Lois Lavon's father William H. SIPLE was born near Hopeville, Clarke County, Iowa, on October 31, 1871, the son of Charles Albert and Ann Eliza SIPLE. William died October 11, 1933, Mount Ayr, Iowa. Lois Lavon's mother Amy (WILSON) SIPLE was born in 1864 and died in 1953. Her brother Avery L. SIPLE was born December 28, 1898, and died February 15, 1919. William, Amy, Lois Lavon, and Avery L. SIPLE were interred at Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton, Ringgold County, Iowa.
