Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
March 10, 1921

OBITUARY ~ R. J.. STEPHENSON

R. J. [Raymer J.] Stephenson was born November 3rd, 1850 in Greene County,Pennsylvania, and on Wednesday, March 2, 1921 his spirit returned to God who gave it.

He was united in marriage Dec. 25, 1873, to Miss Agnes Norton, whom he leaves to mourn his loss. They had three children, John, Hessie, and Norton. The one daughter became Mrs. Cowley, removed to Detroit, Minn., and died there in about 1898, leaving the only grandson, Chester Cowley, now of Detroit. The sons who survive live in Clearfield, John M., and Norton Stephenson.

Mr. Stephenson united with the Free Will Baptist Church in 1880 and lived in that faith until death claimed him, so he is not dead, but gone to sleep and while asleep, will be transported without a doubt, without a fear, for King Immanuel the ship will steer.

Funeral services were held at the late residence in the afternoon of Thursday and were largely attended. Rev. S. Boyd Johnson of the United Presbyterian church of Clearfield officiated, Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery. A good man has gone, a kind and sympathetic neighbor and friend; a faithful and self sacrificing husband and father.
