CLARENCE ARTEMUS REED OBITUARY
Friends here were shocked to hear of the passing of Clarence A. Reed, Saturday at his home near Winterset. Mr. Reed became ill about 6 p.m. at his home and summoned his wife, who called the doctor, but death came to him as he sat in his chair before help arrived.
Mr. and Mrs. Reed have made frequent visits to their children and other friends since moving to Winterset, and a wide circle of friends always greeted the gladly.
Clarence A. Reed, son of N.K. and Sarah May Reed, was born in Sidney, Iowa, Feb. 1, 1885 and died at Winterset, Iowa, Nov. 18, 1950 at the age of 65 years, 8 months and 27 days. He was a member of seven children, four of whom died in infancy.
March 10, 1909 he united in marriage to Miss Bessie M. Bennett of Anderson. To this union eight children were born, the eldest dying in infancy. He is survived by his wife, four sons, Leighton of Farragut, Lyall of Northboro, Max of Hamburg and Keith of Sidney; three daughters, Mrs. Stanley Aistrope (Marjorie), and Mrs. Paul McCullen (Jean) both of Riverton, Mrs. Robert Harrell (Ruth) of Winterset; nine grandchildren, several nieces and nephews; two sisters, Mrs. Frank Young of Clearmont, Mo., and Mrs. Harry Bennett of Sidney and a host of friends.
Clarence grew to manhood in Sidney, where he attended the Sidney schools. He was employed in Omaha for a short time but returned to take up farming, which occupation he followed until 1918, when he established a tire business in Hamburg. In 1935 he entered the employment of the city of Hamburg as superintendent of the water works, where he was employed until Dec. 1944, when he and his wife moved to Winterset, where he filled a similar position until his passing.
He was a member of the I.O.O.F. lodge for more than twenty-five years, transferring his membership to Winterset, where he was also a member of the Rebekah lodge.
He was a kind and loving father, a good neighbor and a friend to all who knew him. He was happy when his children and grandchildren were near. Services were held at Winterset Monday Nov. 20 and the body was taken to Sidney, where funeral services were held Tuesday at the Methodist church, conducted by Rev. Robert Blaine. Burial was in the Sidney cemetery.
