Clyde Winslow Is Called To Death
Stricken With Pneumonia About Ten Days Previous to Death
Many a home in Grundy county was saddened when it was learned Friday morning that Clyde Winslow had been called to his reward after an illness of a little more than a week with pneumonia which had every appearance of being serious from the start.
Clyde Winslow was a man of many friends, a kind and loving husband and father, a good neighbor, a Christian man in every sense of the word. No better evidence of these statements could be shown than the large concourse of friends and neighbors who attended the funeral services held at the Methodist church in this city Sunday afternoon, the church being filled to capacity and many went away unable to gain admittance.
The Odd Fellows and Rebekahs, of which order Mr. Winslow was an honored member, attended in a body. Mrs. Louis Canfield, of Conrad, sang two beautiful selections, "The Old Rugged Cross" and "No Night There."
The remains were taken to Conrad for interment in the family lot in the Conrad cemetery.
Rev. J. B. Bird delivered the funeral sermon and also read the following obituary.
Forty-seven years is the record--brief record of this life of Clyde Winslow, who was born Feb. 25, 1883, at Conrad, Iowa. His parents were Robert and Helen Winslow, but his mother, like Rachel of old, died at the birth of her son. Three weeks later Mr. and Mrs. B. M. Crookshank opened their house and hearts to the motherless babe and took him in as one of their own. He lived with them at Conrad till he attained mans estate, and began to plan for a home of his own.
To this end he and Miss Ada Whorrall were united in marriage Dec. 19, 1906, and continued to live in the neighborhood of Conrad and Beaman till they came to their present home near Grundy Center nine years ago. Six children were born of this union, two have already passed to the home eternal. Mildred, Francis, Helen and Reba are left with their mother to comfort each other in their bereavement.
Besides these of the immediate family are his foster-parents, Mr. and Mrs. B. M. Crookshank of Conrad, brother and sisters; Mrs. Francine Hutchinson of Freeport, Ill., Mrs. Effie Millikan of Galesburg, Ill., Gus Crookshank of Conrad, Mrs. Pearl Pull and Mrs. Myrtle Snyder of Marshalltown, Mrs. Abbie Low of Green Mountain and Mrs. Irene Buchan of Palo Alto, Cal.
The subject of this memoir was a good man and friendly thereby winning many friends. These could not save him when stricken with pneumonia. He passed from his earthly to the heavenly home early on the morning of Feb. 14, 1930.
The relatives from a distance who attended the funeral were M. A. Buchan, Palo Alto, Calif.; Mr. and Mrs. Gus Crookshank, Conrad; Mr. and Mrs. Pull, Mr. and Mrs. Snyder, Marshalltown; Mr. and Mrs. Walter Hutchinson and daughter, Freeport, Ill.; Mrs. Milliken, Galesburg, Ill.; Ralph Whorrall, Oelwein; Glenn Whorrall, Eldora; Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Sisson, Alden, Ralph and Glenn Whorrall are brothers and Mrs. Sisson a sister of Mrs. Winslow.
