OBITUARY ~ SADIE RUTH (SHAFER) WALL

Sadie Ruth, daughter of George and Melissa Stahl Shafer, was born November 14, 1889 in Ringgold County, Iowa, southwest of Diagonal. She died at her home in Clearfield, Iowa on Saturday, May 29 at ninety-two years of age.

Sadie received her education in rural Ringgold county schools, graduating from Diagonal High School in 1908. She taught in several rural schools and in the Diagonal Public School.

On June 2, 1915 she was united in marriage with Orville Wall at her parents' home.

Sadie was a resident of rural Ringgold County until she and her husband moved to a farm southwest of Clearfield in 1921.

Soon after Sadie and Orville's fiftieth wedding anniversary they retired and moved into Clearfield.

As long as her health permitted, Sadie was an active member of the Clearfield United Methodist Church. She enjoyed reading, continuing to do so after her eyesight failed by using the Talking Book machine furnished by the Iowa Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation. Due to her poor eyesight, her radio was her constant companion.

Her grandchildren's participation in sports became an interest of Sadie's and she retained this interest in high school, college and professional sports. Crippling arthritis had confined Sadie to a wheelchair for twenty years.

Preceding her in death were her husband on June 2, 1973; an adopted son, Richard on March 11, 1924; her parents; four sisters, Grace Baker, Estella Beymer, Inez Hughes, and Nora Dinkel; a brother, Chester Shafer; and an infant great grandson,Jeremy Wade Maharry.

Survivors include her two daughters, Mrs. Hazel (Gerald) Maharry of Clearfield and Mrs. Luella (LBanks) Wilson of Mt. Ayr, Iowa; a sister, Mabel Wall of Buena Park, California; two grand-daughters; three grandsons; and fourteen great grandchildren.

Services were held at the Clearfield United Methodist Church on Tuesday, June 1 at 1:30 p.m. with Reverend Jim Turner officiating.

Music was provided by Mary Ellen Spurrier and Becky Nelson, accompanied by Joan Owens.

Casket bearers were John Duey, Arlo Beggs, Darl Bell, Myron Owens, Dwight Matheny, and Rue Nickle.

Interment was in Bethel Cemetery.

Wilson-Watson Funeral Home of Clearfield was in charge of arrangements.
