OBITUARY ~ EDNA ELIZABETH (ROOD) WILSON

Edna Elizabeth Rood, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred L. Rood was born February 9, 1894 on the farm near Clearfield. She died in the hospital in Des Moines March 17, 1925, age 31 years, 1 month and 8 days.

She was a graduate of Clearfield High school, class of 1913, where she was deservedly popular with all her schoolmates. She also attended Simpson College for a time. She was a devoted Christian, and assisted whenever she could in the activities of the local Methodist church, of which she was a member, singing in the choir, and presiding at the piano.

Edna was married to Leo Wilson on May 5th, 1920. The home of the Wilsons since their marriage has been on a farm south of Tingley.

Those left to mourn her untimely passing are the husband, the two year old baby boy, the father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Rood, two sisters, Miss Frances Rood of Des Moines and Mrs. Hazel Reed of Clearfield and two brothers, Frank N. and Will B. Rood, both of Clearfield.

Mrs. Wilson was a kind friend and neighbor, helpful to her parents and to the [?] and had the esteem of all who knew her. Wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend she was most dear to every relation.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church on March 20th and the church was crowded. The floral offerings were beautiful. Rev. A. J. Matthews officiated, speaking from the text, "Be thou faithful until death and I will give you a crown of life". Six young men, cousins, were the pallbearers. Many of the Tingley friends were present to pay their last respects to their neighbor gone before. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery. Transcription by Lorelei Rusco, December of 2011
