OBITUARY - RHODA A. (SMITH) WAFFLE

Rhoda A. SMITH, daughter of Seth T. and Polly SMITH, was born in Knox co., Illinois, October 22, 1839, and passed away at her home in Clearfield, Iowa, April 25, 1922, aged 82 years, 6 months and 3 days.

She was united in marriage at Maquon, Illinois, March 21, 1868, to Charles H. WAFFLE. They moved to Iowa in 1869, living at Bedford, Corning, Cromwell, and moving to Clearfield, in 1881, where the deceased resided the remainder of her life. To this union were born three daughters and four sons, the eldest son and daughter, George and Mary dying in childhood. The living children are W. Clyde WAFFLE of Walla Walla, Washington, Melvin WAFFLE, Mrs. Melvina HIDLAY and Mrs. Blanche E. WAX of Clearfield, and Thos. S. WAFFLE [1876-1933] of Diagonal. Besides these children the deceased leaves to mourn her death two sisters, four brothers and many other relatives and friends.

Mrs. WAFFLE has been a member of the Baptist church for a great many years and always lived a conscientious and upright christian life. She was one of the earlist settlers of Clearfield, her husband having erected the second business building of the town [he kept a saloon and was in the mercantile trade].

Funeral services were held from the Baptist church of Clearfield Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Interment was made in Clearfield cemetery [Ringgold County, Iowa] beside the remains of her husband who preceded her in death about twenty-three years [died May 12, 1901].
