Mrs. Marinda Blackman VanWinkle was born in McArthur, Ohio June 16, 1848 and died November 24, 1923, aged 75 years. 5 months and 8 days.

In early womanhood she removed to Iowa where she was married to Isiah Van Winkle Nov. 13, 1865. To this union were born six children, two of whom passed away, Addie M. Jackson in 1884, end Ray in infancy

Those surviving their mother are Grace L. Bender, Maloy, Iowa; Cora B. Smith, Mt Ayr; Bertha M. Ray, Des Moines, and Fay F. Van Winkle of Clearfield, She is survived by two sisters, Mrs. C . J .

There are seven grandchildren in the family. Her husband and companion passed away in 1915 aged 70 years.

Sister Van Winkle was a consistent devoted Christian. She was regular in her attendance, always appreciative of her pastor, and faithful at the. mid-week service. She became an active follower of her Christ in early girlhood and diligently followed his will.

She was a devoted mother making the home a center of real character building. The deceased found time to help in the Ladies Aid Society, the Relief Corps and Missionary Societies, and other organizations where she was always forceful. A kind thoughtful neighbor she was ever ready to respond to the call of need.

Sister Van Winkle was stricken with pneumonia Wednesday night and passed to her real Saturday morning. Full of days and good deeds, her memory will be an inspiration to her large circle of friends.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church at 2:30 on Monday and were largely attended. Her pastor Rev. A. J. Matthews, conducted the service, assisted by Rev. S. Boyd Johnson. Floral offerings were very beautiful. Interment was in the family lots in Clearfield Cemetery.
