Edna May, the daughter of John and Lizzie Clark, was born in Buchanan county, Missouri, January 16, 1896, and died February 3, 1913, with consumption, aged 17 years and 18 days. She has gone to meet her sister, Ethel, who had gone on before her, and to meet her dear Savior. She was always kind and cheerful and loved by all who knew her. She leaves father, mother, one sister, two brothers and a little niece and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn their loss. Funeral services were conducted at the Nodaway church by Rev. J. W. Garrett, of St. Joseph; his text was taken from St. John, 11th chapter, 28th verse.
She was laid to rest in the Green cemetery, near St. Joseph, by the side of her sister, Ethel, who died January 23, Our sympathy indeed goes to this bereaved family.
Edna we miss thee from thy place, A shadow o'er our life is cast, We miss thy sunshine [sic] face, We miss thy willing hand, Thy fond and earnest care. Our home is sad without thee, We miss thee everywhere.
