OBITUARY ~ OLIVE MAUD WELLIVER WEBBER

Olive Maud, daughter of Jacob and Hannah Welliver, was born March 4th, 1854, at Millersburg, Ohio, and died on the morning of October 3, 1936, at her home in Clearfield after an illness of several years. She had attained the age of 32 years, 6 months and 29 days.

Mr. and Mrs. Welliver decided to leave Ohio and move farther west so with the family of three sons and three daughters they journeyed to Illinois, locating on a farm near Alexis. Here their children received their education.

On June 30, 1878, Andrew Webber and Olive Maud Welliver were married at North Henderson, Ill., and it was there on a farm that this worthy couple started their home. Three daughters came to brighten this home.

In the fall of 1895 Mr. and Mrs. Webber decided to move farther west and on November 1 they arrived in Clearfield, la. and settled on a farm nearby where they lived until 1907, when they moved into Clear field.

Sorrow came to the home on February 27, 1903, when their eldest daughter, Ida May McKinstry passed away, and also on November 15, 1917, when the husband and father died.

She united with the Christian church of Clearfield in 1906 and was a member of the Home Department at the time of her death.

She is survived by her two daughters, Nettie J. Webber and Mrs. Francis R. Stevenson; three grandchildren, Guy, Avis and Lois Stevenson, several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were held at the Christian church, Monday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock, with the Rev. P. O. Nystrand of Pickering, Mo., officiating. Interment was made in the Clearfield cemetery.

The singers were Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Crew, Mrs. Bert Lyddon and Donald Green. Pallbearers were Ralph Green, Frank Green, Roy Reed, A. H. Brown, Harry Curry and Bert Lyddon.
