OBITUARY - EDNA ELLA STOGDILL

Edna Ella STOGDILL was born Nov. 31, 1883, near West Grove, Iowa, and passed away June 5, 1964 at her home in Kellerton Iowa.

She was the fifth of eight children born to W. B. and Sarah SMITH, all of whom preceded her in death except one brother, Waller SMITH of Sterling City, Texas.

She lived the greater part of her life in Iowa. On February 24, 1902 she was married to Charles W. STOGDILL, who preceded her in death on August 2, 1952. To them were born four children; Gertrude was the only one to grow to maturity.

As a young woman she became a member of the United Brethren church of Beaconsfield.

Edna, a lover of life and of all those who lived it, was known as "Grandma" to old and young, friends and relations, the poor and the rich, all of whom will miss her ready smile, quick wit and cheery "hello."

Left to cherish her memory are: one daughter, Gertrude NICHOLS of Kellerton; three grandchildren, Lloyd NICHOLS of Ottumwa, Iowa, Glen NICHOLS of Grand River, Iowa, and Reba JUDSON of Rapid City, S. Dak.; eight great-grandchildren, other relatives and a host of friends.

Funeral services, conducted by the Varner-Crew Services of Diagonal, were held in the Christian church in Kellerton, June 8, 1964 at 2 pm, with Rev. Elmer WEST officiating, assisted by Mrs. Cela FUGATE. Music was furnished by Phyllis JONES and Bernice PALMER, accompanied by Mrs. Louise MEADOWS. Casket bearers were Bert, Claude, Clyde and Joseph STOGDILL and Willard and Gary CUNDIFF. Interment was in Maple Row cemetery in Kellerton.
