OBITUARY ~ L. L. SIVERLY

L. L. Siverly was born in Kentucky April 24th, 1839. He came with his parents to Iowa when he was a child of six weeks and located with them in Louisa County. The greater part of his life was spent here in the locality Sixteen years ago he moved with his family to Ringgold County and on their present homestead where he resided until the time of his death.

He was married to Isabelle Johnston July 3d, 1877. To this union was born six children; three sons, Clyde Siverly of, Ames, Iowa, Fred and Cleon of this, community; three daughters, Mrs. Georgia Benson, Mrs. Ethel Carson, and Miss Ruth, all of this community. All the children, with the wife and mother, survive the husband and father, and were present at the funeral.

Brother Siverly was converted when a boy of fourteen and soon after united with the Methodist Episcopal church, and has remained a faithful member until his death. The last twenty-five years of his life were lived especially close to his Savior, He was very emphatic in his declaration that he was fully saved, and none who talked with him could doubt the sincerity of his faith for a moment.

He was a great sufferer. He was taken sick six years ago this last fall and there has hardly been a day since that time that he did not endure the most severe pain, yet during it all he was patient, kind,and thoughtful to the dear ones about him who so kindly ministered to him during his long illness, and always submissive to the Divine Will. When he was stricken with hemorrhage of the lungs on last Friday he realized that the end was near and spoke of its coming with confidence and assurance, there being no fear of the dark valley of the Shadow of death, for he was conscious of the presence of the Good Shepherd to guide him safely to the heavenly side. He leaves to mourn his loss, the wife, who has been his faithful companion throughout the years and his faithful nurse during the six years of affliction, the children, mentioned above, four grandchildren, three brothers, two sisters, many more distance relatives and the many close friends and neighbors all of whom loved this good man devotedly.

He died at their farm home southeast of Clearfield Friday night, Jan. 6th, at the age of 77 years, 9 months and 2 days. Funeral services were held at the Grant Center church Sunday afternoon by his pastor, Rev. Chas. M. Edmondson.

Interment at Bethel Cemetery.
