Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
February 20, 1919

OBITUARY ~ AGATHA MELVINA THURMAN STRANGE

Agatha Melvina Thurman, beloved wife of James Strange, died February 11th, 1919, aged 21 years, 10 days, at her home southeast of Clearfield, where she had been ill but a little over a week of influenza followed by pulmonary hemorrhage. Thru out her illness she showed little improvement, and all that medical skill and family affection could do was done, but the Grim Reaper bet all at naught.

Mrs. Strange was born in Clark Co., Iowa, Feb. 1st, 1898. It was there she received her education and grew to womanhood, crowning it by giving her heart to Christ and uniting with the Christian Church at Barney, Iowa.

Upon her marriage to James Strange, Sept. 12, 1917, she came to her home here. She was a loving wife, and a bright and prosperous future seemed before Mr. and Mrs. Strange in their young married life. Being of a kindly sympathetic heart, she made friends with all whom she met, and over these Death cast a gloom, for it seems hardly possible that one who, only a few days ago, was bright in mind and active in body, is gone, never to return, but God wanted another star for his own and called her hence.. On account of the serious illness of her husband, no service was held at the house, but a brief service was held at the grave where a number of friends had come to pay their last respects to all that was mortal of their friend and neighbor, Rev. C. A. Carlson officiated.

To the grief stricken sisters and brother, also other relatives who mourn not alone for their departed one, the deepest sympathy is extended.

One sister, Mrs. Ruby Stinson attended the funeral, and one brother, William Thurman came, but was not in time for the funeral. Two sisters living in Nebraska were unable to be present, but to all the sorrows will be most keen.
