OBITUARY - MRS. EMERAL J. WHEELEN

Florence Lee, daughter of Walter R. and Isabell HERBERT, was born near Bedford, Iowa, August 9, 1917, and departed this life at her home northeast of Mount Ayr, Wednesday, December 7, 1938, at the age of 21 years, three months and 28 days.

When but nine years of age she moved with her parents to Ringgold County, locating northeast of Mount Ayr, in which locality she spent the remaining years of her life.

She attended high school at Mount Ayr, Iowa, graduating with the class of 1934, after which she taught one year in a rural school.

She was united in marriage with Emeral J. WHEELEN on April 17, 1937. To this union was born one infant daughter.

Besides her husband and little daughter, Isabell Jane, just nine days old, she leaves her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W[alter] R. HERBERT of Mount Ayr; one sister, Mrs. Gladys MARSH of Bedford; three nieces, two nephews and a host of relatives and friends.

She united with the Baptist church at Mount Ayr, Iowa, early in life and has lived a consistent Christian life, always attending church and Sunday school when it was possible for her to go.

All was done that could be done, yet a devoted wife, a loving mother, a cherished daughter and sister, a good neighbor, a loyal friend, answered the summons and the spirit winged its way back to God who had given it.

A private funeral was held from the home Friday at 1:30 p.m., conducted by Rev. STARK of Tingley. Burial was made in the Rose Hill cemetery [Mount Ayr].
