Conrad, Oct. 3.—Funeral services for Mrs. W. C. Hiatt, a well-known resident of this place, were held Thursday afternoon from the Methodist church here in charge of Rev. F. O. Hillman. Burial was in the Conrad cemetery.
Mrs. Hiatt was born Mary E. Cochran at Elwood, Ind., March 28, 1875, and passed away at her home in Conrad, Sept. 30, on the thirty-ninth anniversary of her marriage. She was united in marriage to William C. Hiatt, Sept. 30, 1891. To this union two sons were born, Cleon Kenneth, of Iowa Falls, and G. Clare, of Marshalltown, who survive. Her husband and one brother, Joseph A. Cochran, of Elwood, Ind., also survive.
Mr. and Mrs. Hiatt made their home in Indiana until October 1900 when they came to Conrad, and have since lived in Conrad or vicinity. In March 1905 they united with the Methodist Episcopal church and since that time they have been very active members. Mrs. Hiatt has been especially active in the Missionary Society and the W.C.T.U.
