Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
December 12, 1918

OBITUARY ~ JOSEPH LEE STEVENSON

Joseph Lee Stevenson, son of 0. A. and Margaret Stevenson, was born in Taylor Co., Iowa, June 27, 1890 died at his home in West Clearfield Dec. 7, 1918, aged 28 years, 5 months, 10 days. He was born in this country and spent his life here.

On Oct. 20, 1911. he was united in marriage to Miss Frances Webber. To them were born three children, Avis, Guy and Lola. Besides the wife and children there survive the parents, three brothers - Lester, Wayne and Clarence, - and one sister, Maud.

About ten years ago he became a member of the Clearfield Christian church and here his interest continued thru out the years, often expressing regret in recent days that he was unable to attend services more.

The last two years of his life have been years of changing scenes. Here it was first discovered that there were tokens of failing health. This caused deep concern among both family and friends. His intense devotion to his work often led him to costly extremes. But apparently he could not see the meaning of these things, and so before the noontide his sun is set.

He was to enjoy the new home less than a week prepared it and when all was ready he was brought in, und with supreme delight he enjoyed the fireside with his loved ones, little realizing that the vacant chair was to soon be his.

Funeral services were held at the residence on Tuesday afternoon,Dec. 10, conducted by Pastor J. W. Johnson of the Clearfield Christian church. There was a large gathering of relatives and friends. Interment followed in the Clearfield Cemetery.
