MRS. HELEN SMITH SERVICES MAY 18

Funeral services for Mrs. Helen (SAYLER) SMITH, held last Saturday in the First Christian Church of Bedford, were conducted by Rev. Ivo G. RANDELS. Interment was in the Clearfield cemetery, Clearfield, Ia.

The following obituary was included in the service:

Helen M. SAYLER, daughter of Isaac N. and Lucy [A. (DeWEESE)] SAYLER, was born August 28, 1903 in Galesburg, Ill., and passed away in a nursing home in Battle Creek, Michigan, May 15, 1963 at 4:45 a. m., at the age of 59 years, 9 months and 13 days.

She was married to Charlie C[linton] SMITH December 20, 1926, and to this union five children were born, three boys and two girls. Her parents and one brother preceded her in death. She is survived by her children---Wallace E., Renton, Washington; Clinton C., Alameda, California; James L., Decatur, Michigan; Mrs. Betty HANSEL, Gary, Ind., and Miss Mary SMITH, Battle Creek, Michigan; 11 grandchildren; three brothers, Ralph SAYLER, Victorville, Calif., Ernest SAYLER, Bedford, Ia., and John SAYLER, Baltimore, Md.; three sisters, Mrs. Margaret PINE, Diagonal, Ia., Mrs. Roena SEXTON, Bedford, Ia., Mrs. Stella BARLOW, Mission, Tex.

She spent the greater part of her life in Iowa, except for a few years in the states of Washington and Michigan.

She became a member of the Christian church while in her teens and had her final membership in the Christian church of Bedford, Ia.

She is another example of a good mother and homemaker who gave the last full measure of devotion to her home and children. She was ever faithful to her church and spent her time between her home and church.
