OBITUARY ~ ANGELINE CLINE WENTZEL

The people of Clearfield were surprised and shocked yesterday forenoon when word went around that Mrs. S J. Wentxel was dead. Mrs. Wentxel was alone at her home just south of the business section, and was not known to be ill. Neighbors saw her in her yard and about morning duties. When her little grandson, Harry Grant called at the house at 9:30 he found her sitting in a chair, but dead. He called others, and the word quickly around. Some weeks since Mrs. Wentzel was ill but seemed in about her usual health of late. The sons and one daughter are here; a daughter lives in California;and another daughter, Mrs. Fred Rood, is now on her way to the far west. Mr. Wentzel died but a few months since.

The funeral services will be held Saturday morning at l0 o'clock at the U.P. Church.

OBITUARY ~ ANGELINE CLINE WENTZEL

In 1854 in Northumberland Co. Pa. on March 14 Angeline Cline Wentzel was born. She was married to S. J. Wentzel October 6, 1870 and came to Iowa In 1880 settling on the farm south of Clearfield. From the farm she came to her late home in town about 6 years ago.

On December 19, 1919, death claimed her husband and the same angel came three days ago, June 19, 1920 to claim her.

Her home was blessed with six children, five of whom survive her. They are Charles Ira and David Leroy Wentzel, Mrs. Ed Grant, Mrs. F. L. Rood, and Mrs. Geo. Crane. Mrs. Crane's home is in Huntington Beach, California. The others live in or near Clearfield.

Mrs. Wentzel was apparently as well as usual the early part of the week and was out Wednesday morning, working around the yard, but later was found sitting in her chair dead. There evidently had been no conscious sickness or struggle, a quiet release of the spirit and her earthly career was ended.

For more than 7 years she stave herself in unceasing care and loving ministry to the welfare and comfort of her invalid husband, and leaves in this and in other ways too to her children and grandchildren, a rich legacy in the memory of her faithfulness and kindness.

She united with the United Brethren Church while living in Illinois and later transferred membership to the United Presbyterian church of Clearfield in the fellowship of which she continued till her death. Death came suddenly but not in an undesired way to those who are ready to go to live with Jesus. "Be ye also ready for in such an hour as ye think not, the son of man cometh."

The funeral services were held Saturday at 10 a. m. In the United Presbyterian Church conducted Rev. Aikin of Monroe, Iowa, former pastor of this church. Interment followed in the Clearfield Cemetery.
