Hazel Follett Clark was born in High Lake township, Emmet county, Iowa, April 4th, 1891, and died on April 9th, 1918, aged 27 years, 2 months and 5 days. She was the daughter of E. A. and Kate Follett, now of Armstrong and she was married to Bert Clark August 15, 1911, coming to Dolliver a bride where she has since resided until the time of her death. Four children were born to her: Fay Constance who preceded her to the land of flowers March 15, 1916, Lorean [Lorraine (correction by Lorraine Clark Lucas)] Eleanor, Mavis Katherine and Bertrand [Bertram (correction by Lorraine Clark Lucas)] Keith, the baby only ten days old at the time of her death. Mrs. Clark was a great home body. Her greatest joy was keeping her home and children happy. She was an excellent mother and devoted wife and will be greatly missed in her home. She had as friends all her acquaintances. Everyone has a good word to say of her and all feel a very great bereavement in her sudden death. Those left to mourn her departure beside her husband and children are her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Follett of Armstrong, two sisters, Mrs. Grace Dare of Spirit Lake, Mrs. Ida Boyd of Armstrong and one brother Keith Follett of Armstrong and a host of friends and neighbors.
There is no death, the stars go down,
To shine upon some fairer shore
And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown
They shine forever more.
They are not dead but passed beyond
The mists that blind us here,
Into the new and larger life
Of that serener sphere.
