Pallbearers for the funeral services at The Chenoweth Funeral home on Friday afternoon for the late Clyde Heald were: Hugh McIlroy, L. Trusty, Herman Ransom and Lew Schoenfeld, all of Ionia, Herbert Prudhon and Fred Jordan of Nashua. Rev. F. L. Hanscom was the officiating minister, and burial was in Greenwood cemetery at Nashua.

The Misses Edna and Jennie Heald of Minneapolis arrived in Nashua for the funeral of their brother, and are guests in the E. G. Meiers home.

Clyde Herbert Heald, son of John and Lydia Billings Heald, was born at Bradford, June 15, 1867. Here he grew to manhood and was educated in the public schools and the Bradford Academy, and for the greater part of his life he resided in Chickasaw county.

In 1891 he was united in marriage to Emma Danna {sic}. They established their home in Ionia, where he was engaged in blacksmithing for many years. Later he purchased a farm south of Ionia, and until his retirement a few years ago he was a successful and influential farmer, serving several terms as president of the Chickasaw County Farm Bureau Federation.

He was a man of strong Christian faith and a member of the Ionia Congregational church. He is survived by his wife, Almira Wesp Heald, now confined to a hospital in Pontiac, Mich., also two sisters, the Misses Edna and Jennie Heald of Minneapolis; and two nieces, daughters of Warren H. and Alena Heald Smith.
