Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
July 16, 1925

OBITUARY ~ MILO WARREN WITTER

Milo Warren Witter son of Milo and Esther Perry Witter, was born Oct. 30, 1858 at Cherry Valley, Ill. He was the second child of a family of six, and the last of his family, his parents and brothers and sisters having all preceded him in death.

In early childhood his family moved to Belvedere, Ill., and later to Wisconsin, then to Minnesota, residing at Mankato. They came to Clearfield when Mr. Witter was thirteen settling on the northeast eighty of the farm where the family now resides. One. year was spent in Conway and then they moved to the farm two miles south of Clearfield. The parents moved to town in 1900.

On Jan. 28, 1900 he was united in marriage, to Stella. Pearl Busby and they made their home on the old place for three years, then in town for a year, then in 1904, to the place where they have since made their home.

His mother, Esther Perry Witter, died Mar. 19, 1904, and his father in 1914. Seven children were born to the family: a son who died in, Infancy in 1901. He is survived by his .wife, Stella Busby Witter; Wilma May, Milo Eldred, Mrs. Mildred Hagee of Fonda, Iowa;. Warren Ellsworth, Lela Lillian and William Leonard, also a granddaughter, Shirley Marie.

Mr. Witter was a friendly man, liked by all who knew him and moved in a large circle of acquaintances. He was a successive farmer.

He was baptized and united with the M. E. church three weeks before the end came. Devoutly and humbly pouring out his soulís desire before God, his great regret was that he had not earlier made his Savior his confidant and light. He was patient in his suffering, hearty in his welcoming of friends at his bedside and appreciative of the tender care bestowed upon him by his companion and loved ones. The last moment came near the noon hour July 10, in great peace, when his soul went out to be with his Maker.

The funeral Services were held at the Methodist church at 4:00 pm on Sunday the 12th. Rev. A. J. Matthews preached the sermon, and pastors Johnson and Underwood assisted in the service. The church was packed with friend and neighbors, some driving a considerable distance to be present. The pallbearers were Jos. Doubet, M. Laurie, Wm. Darlington, Hugh Gelvin, J. W. Moffett, and Lee Hardin, all long time friends of the deceased. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
