The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1933

OBITUARY - DALE ADAIR

Dale Lorraine ADAIR, daughter of Charles and Pearl ADAIR, was born near Redding, Iowa, October 30, 1907, and passed away at the Methodist hospital, St. Joseph, Mo., June 13, 1933, aged 25 years, seven months and 13 days.

She had grown to young womanhood here among us and by her gentle ways and exemplary life won the love and admiration of everyone. To know her was to love her.

She gave her heart to God and united with the Methodist church when a little girl and lived a consistant christian life until God took her away.

Dale was in the hospital about two weeks and on Monday, June 12, underwent a goiter operation. She remained conscious almost to the last and her every thought seemed to be for others. Everything that medical science and loving hands could do was done for her recovery, but our Heavenly Father needed Dale and called her home.

She graduated from Redding high school in 1925 and in 1928 she graduated from a two-year nrmal course from Simpson college. Since then she attended Maryville State Teachers college one year. She taught one year in a rural school and for the past six years had been employed as a teacher in the Redding school.

She leaves to mourn her passing, besides her parents, one brother, G. S. ADAIR, one sister, Oakland, both at home; two grandfathers, George ADAIR of Redding, Iowa, and Samuel JONES of Allendale, Mo.; a host of relatives and friends.

Dale will be sadly missed, not only by loving parents, brother and sister, but by the teachers and the whole community.

To us there is mystery in life, there is mystery in what we call death. But there is -
Only a river between us,
Parting our dear ones a while;
Only a veil that parts us,
Hiding the light of their smile;
Only a sigh and a struggle,
Only a moment of pain.
Then 'mid the splendor of Eden,
We shall behold them again.

The funeral services were held in the Redding Methodist church Thursday, June 15, at 2:30 o'clock p.m., conducted by Rev. WARRIOR, after which the body was laid to rest in the Redding cemetery.

The sympathy of the entire community and teachers is extended to the sorrowing relatives and friends.
