Mrs. Frank Clanton died at her home in California on May 16th, after several weeks of illness. Her remains were brought here, funeral services were held in the M. E. church Sabbath, May 20th, and her remains laid to rest in the St. Charles cemetery, west of town. At St. Charles, the funeral procession was combined with that of Mrs. Amanda Shigley and was a double procession to the cemetery.

J. D. Peffley went to Kansas City Friday to meet Mrs. Peffley and Mrs. Clanton who were returning with the body of Mrs. Clanton, who died at her home in Norwalk, California on Monday, May 14.

The corpse of Mrs. C. F. Clanton, who died in California, arrived Saturday at 4:15 p. m. over the C. & G. W. Funeral services were conducted at the M. E. church Sunday by Rev. Orcutt assisted by Rev. Baker and McElroy.

In Mrs. Clanton’s death the community lost one of its true and best friends, a kind and considerate neighbor, a devoted parent and wife. All who knew her were her friends and they are legions, her chief delight was in doing good and in cheering those about her by her ever present kindness both in word and action.

She leaves, who deeply feel this loss, a husband, one daughter, Mrs. J. D. Peffley, and two sons, G. W. and J. D., one son having preceded her to that home eternal and whose hands on doubt have long since been long since clasped with mothers.

Coordinator's note: Maiden name taken from 1862 Madison County Marriage Record. Of the two dates given for her death, May 14th is correct per the California Death Index.
