Millicent M. Clark was born March 17, 1862, at Decorah, Iowa, and departed this life Aug. 27, 1911, at 4 o’clock a. m., at her home in Lime Springs, Iowa, after an illness of about 4 months.
Miss Clark lived with her parents at Decorah, Waukon, St. Paul and Postville, moving to Lime Springs in 1879.
She was a person of very strong intellect and never diverted from her convictions of right when two pathways appeared before her. Her convictions of what was right were her only guide. She was a loving and affectionate daughter and sister, a kind and considerate friend. To know her was to love her, and no eulogy is necessary, for her friends well know the measure of her greatness.
A mother, Mrs. F. M. Clark; two sisters, Mrs. John G. Stradley and Mrs. A. J. Cray, and two brothers, A. Y. and F. W. Clark, with many friends are left to mourn her loss.
With the passing away of Miss Clark the community suffers the loss of a noble character.
Funeral took place Monday at 2:30 p. m. at the family residence, conducted by Rev. Thos. Maxwell, assisted by Rev. H. F. Williams.
