Mrs. Samuel Diamond
Mrs. Clara Diamond was born in Rock Grove, Stephenson county, Ill., December 12th, 1868, and quietly passed away from her home, in Reinbeck, Iowa, on Sept. 1st, 1927.
She came to Iowa with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Candy, in 1883, and settled on a farm north of Ackley, where she remained until October 28th, 1885, when she became the wife of Samuel Diamond.
To this union was born one daughter, Elva, who later was married to Mr. Samuel Newton, of Grundy Center, Iowa.
This beloved and only daughter preceded her mother in death in December 1911.
For several years Mrs. Diamond has been a constant sufferer, and much of the time has been confined to her home.
Those who knew her best, have often remarked about her unusual patience and thoughtfulness of others, to the very last.
She maintained her faith in God, and the rewards of a better land, and none regretted more than she, that her constant affliction made her unable to enter into the activities of this social and religious life of the community.
Her devoted husband secured all possible assistance, to bring relief, and no doubt this faithful care has prolonged her life for many years.
But at last human hands failed, and she could no longer endure the strain of life; so a few days ago she answered the summons and went into a peaceful sleep.
There are left to mourn this loss, her faithful husband, two grandsons, Clarence and Wayne Newton, with their father, Samuel Newton, of Grundy Center, Ia., and an only uncle, Mr. Maurer, of Rock Grove, Ill., beside other relatives and friends.
