Clearfield, Iowa
March 29, 1923

OBITUARY ~ THORWALD SOMA

Thorwald Soma was a native of Norway, born there on November 13, 1850. He died at his home in Clearfield, Iowa on Saturday, March 24, 1923. He had passed the Psalmist’s limit of life by two years, four months and ten days. Mr. Soma immigrated to America in 1880, coming first to Chicago, and a few years later to Iowa. He was married a few years later to Miss Bertha Nelson in 1885, and they made their home in Clearfield in 1887, residing here ever since, and following his trade of painter.

To them seven children were born, four of whom died in infancy. There survive the wife, one daughter and two sons. They are Mrs Basil Herring of Clearfield; John Soma of Hebron, Nebraska; and Fred Soma of Wahoo, Nebraska. There are also seven grandchildren.

The funeral services were held at the Methodist Church in Clearfield, on Monday afternoon, March 26th. The address was from the text, "We know not what we shall be". Interment followed in the Clearfield Cemetery.
