OBITUARY

Harriett A. WIARD, daughter of James [Millard] and Charlotte [(LESCH)] WIARD, was born Febr. 1, 1852, in Cook Co. Ill. and departed this life July 15, 1938, at her home in North Clearfield, at the age of 86 years, 5 mos. and 14 days.

On account of the mother's death, her childhood days were spent with her sister Maryette CHAMBERLAIN, at Ellisville, Ill. On July 3, 1873, she was united in marriage to Chilion SHAWLER. They located in Warren Co., Ill. On Feb. 9, 1874, they both united with the Baptist Church. Into this Christian home came three sons, Milton W. SHAWLER, J. O. SHAWLER, Lowell SHAWLER, and one daughter, Minnie M. WOOD, all now residing in Clearfield vincinity.

Mr. and Mrs. SHAWLER came to Iowa in an early day, locating in Taylor County, in Oct. 1875. The husband and father died July 13, 1899. On May 28, 1903, she was again united in marriage to William B[edell]. YARYAN, a Civil War veteran, who died May 28, 1916.

Our subject being the daughter of early pioneers, experienced the struggles and privations of that time which formed a sturdy character, typical of the people of the early days. Her father was one of the surveyors of the city of Chicago when it was founded in 1833.

Mr. and Mrs. SHAWLER ran the first hotel in Clearfield, in a building that was later moved one block west, and became a part of the EVANS House.

Her life was one of Christian service. She transferred her membership to the Methodist Church at Clearfield in 1903, so that she might be affliliated with a working church. She was a regular attendant at all church services and exemplified her Christianity in her service to her family and her neighbors, all of which reaped it's reward in their constant attentions during her months of illness. She was an active member of the Women's Relieft Corps as long as physical health permitted.

The last of a family of eleven children was answered the call of their Savior.

To cherish her memory, are her three sons, one daughters, fourteen grandchildren and twelve great-grand children, many other relatives and a host of friends.

Funeral services were held in Clearfield Methodist church on Sunday afternoon, July 17th, with a large attendance. The Relief corps were in attendance, and sat together. Rev. M. O. McKENZIE, the pastor, was in charge of the service. Pallberers were six grandsons of the deceased.

Interment followed in Clearfield Cemetery.
