OBITUARY ~ CLYDE RUSSELL WOODS
Clyde Russell Woods, eldest son of Adam and Mattie Woods, was born near
Diagonal, Iowa. November 10th, 1895, and died at the Base Hospital at Camp
Dodge, November 2nd, 1918, being at the time of his death 22 years, 11 months
and 23 days of age. Clyde grew to young manhood in this community and his
friends were numbered only by his acquaintances.
He united with the Methodist church at Clearfield, Iowa, during the winter or
1913, and has lived a consistent Christian life. Always ready to do his duty
in any way when his country called him he gladly responded to the call, and
entered the service May 24th, 1918, and has since been stationed at Camp Dodge
near Des Moines, at which place he died on Saturday afternoon of pneumonia
following the Spanish Influenza.
Kind and loving in his ways, always with a happy disposition, he leaves a
vacancy in his home and community which never can be filled. He leaves to
mourn his early death, his father and mother, three sisters and two
brothers,-Mrs. W. E. Butcher, Mrs. Clarence Ethington, Harold, who is also a
soldier at Camp Dodge, and Jean and Wilma still at home, two infant brothers
having preceded him.
The funeral service was conducted at the home Tuesday afternoon by Rev. C. A.
Carlson, pastor of the Clearfield Methodist church, assisted by Rev. Swick of
Diagonal, and interment was made in the Diagonal Cemetery.
