Mrs. Mary Clark Passed Away at Sonís Home Sun.
Mrs. Mary Clark of Cedar Rapids, who has been staying at the home of her son, Dr. J.P. Clark, passed away last Sunday morning at the home of her son after a long illness.

Mrs. Clark came to this city after the death of her husband, Dr. Clark, a pioneer physician of Cedar Rapids and before that at Ogden. Her illness required the amputation of one limb. From the effects of this operation and her long standing illness she gradually became weaker until, with all her vigor, life could no longer be sustained.

The remains were taken to Cedar Rapids on Monday, where they were cremated. The remains of both Dr. J.P.ís parents were brought to Estherville on Thursday morning for burial in Oak Hill cemetery

There were services in Cedar Rapids and brief services at the cemetery here in charge of the Rev. Cluade Fausnaugh.

There remains to mourn her death two sons, Dr. J.P. Clark of this city and a son in the west. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, December 28, 1939)

Mother of Dr. Clark is Called
The body of Mrs. Mary Clark, mother of Dr. J.P. Clark, was returned here today for burial in the Oak Hill cemetery beside the ashes of her husband which were brought here at the same time from Cedar Rapids.

Funeral services were held for Mrs. Clark yesterday afternoon in Cedar Rapids where she had lived for a number of years. The Rev. Claude Fausnaugh conducted the rites a the graveside.

Mrs. Clark, who was 69 years old, had been in ill health since last March when a fractured hip necessitated the amputation of a leg. She is survived by her son, Dr. J.P. Clark of Estehrville and a brother, Neil McFarland of Versdale, Washington.

Mrs. Clark was born in Story county [May 29, 1870] and in 1897 was married to Dr. C.B. Clark. Dr. Clark paractised medicine in Ogden, Ia., and later took up his practice in Cedar Rapids until his death in 1933. Mrs. Clark continued to live in Cedar Rapids until moving to Estherville a year ago to be with her son. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, December 28, 1939)
