DONALD SPENCER

(part of this obituary was missing from this edition due to water damage)

DONALD SPENCER PASSED AWAY IN FEBRUARY OF 1930, AT AGE 11 YEARS.

HE LEAVES TO MOURN HIS ABSENCE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, HIS SISTER MARY VIRGINIA, AGED 6; HIS GRANPARENTS, MR. AND MRS. A. L. SPENCER OF MOUNT AYR AND MR. AND MRS. GEO. SEFRIT OF DELPHOS, IOWA; A HOST OF RELATIVES AND MANY FRIENDS.

HIS SUNNY DISPOSITION AND WILLING WAYS GAINED HIM HIS MANY FRIENDS. HE WAS LOVED BY HIS TEACHERS, HIS CLASSMATES, HIS PLAYMATES AND ALL WHO KNEW HIM. DONALD WAS A MEMBER OF THE BIBLE SCHOOL OF THE LOCAL CHURCH OF CHRIST.

WHILE IT IS TRUE THAT HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY THOSE WHO LOVED HIM AND ENJOYED HIS COMPANIONSHIP, YET IT IS A CONSOLATION TO THEM TO KNOW THAT HE IS IN A WORLD FREE FROM THE CARES AND SORROWS OF THE WORLD HE LEFT.

IT IS AN INSPIRATION TO HIS BEREAVED PARENTS TO KNOW THAT ONE MORE PRECIOUS JEWEL HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE FATHER’S MANSION AND THAT HE WILL BE THERE WAITING FOR THEM, FOR AS THE GRIEF-STRICKEN DAVID SAID, UPON THE LOSS OF HIS SON “I SHALL GO TO HIM FOR HE SHALL NOT RETURN TO ME.”

SO, LET US REST OUR FAITH IN THE WORDS OF OUR LORD JESUS: “BLESSED ARE THEY WHO MOURN FOR THEY SHALL BE COMFORTED.”

RELATIVES FROM A DISTANCE IN ATTENDANCE AT THE SERVICE INCLUDED CECIL H. SPENCER AND FAMILY OF CUMBERLAND, IOWA, MR. AND MRS. E.M. SPENCER OF COLO, IOWA, MRS. HOWARD KIPPER OF HUMESTON, REID SPONSLER OF HUMESTON, WILLIAM SEFRIT OF SLATER, IOWA.
