OBITUARY ~ RAYMOND L. WAKE

May 26, 1922 ~ June 20, 2001

Raymond L. WAKE, son of Elgie Vern WAKE and Oma Marie (SHAW) WAKE was born May 26, 1922 on the family farm in Jones Township in Union County, Iowa and passed from this life Monday, June 20, 2011 at Clearview Home in Mt. Ayr, Iowa at 89 years of age.

Raymond graduated from Thayer High School in 1939 and was united in marriage to Dorothy Wilma ORFIELD on June 27, 1943 in Creston, Iowa. They made their home on their farm south of Thayer and celebrated over 62 years of marriage on that farm. Dorothy passed away in 2005, and Raymond moved to Clearview home in Mt. Ayr a short time later.

Raymond was a proud hard working farmer. He enjoyed being outdoors; and, in earlier years, he enjoyed coon hunting. His greatest love was farming, tending his livestock, and everything that went along with being a farmer.

Those relatives who preceded Raymond in death were his parents; and his wife Dorothy.

He leaves to cherish his memory, sister, Katherine STONER and her husband Tommie of Afton, Iowa; brother-in-law, Clarence ORFIELD of Murray; as well as other relatives, friends and the loving staff of the Clearview Home in Mt. Ayr.

Funeral services held Friday, June 24, 2011 at 10:30 a.m., Kale Funeral Home in Osceola, Iowa. Interment made at Hopeville Cemerty, Hopeville, Clarke County, Iowa.

Memorial contributions may be directed to his family for a memorial to the Clearview Home for their flower garden.
