Clary, died Saturday night, Oct. 10, at the Harrison Memorial hospital, from complications resulting from a fractured hip, sustained in a fall at her home on Main Street recently. Burial in Battle Grove cemetery. Mrs. Clary was born in this city Sep. 12, 1856, a daughter of the late James J. and Harriett Madison Parish and had spent her entire life here. She was the last member of her immediate family. Word of her passing brought genuin sorrow to the deovted friends who had known and loved her for her many admirable traits. Time had touched her lightly and she found so much joy in living that her companionship gave others a feeling of much happiness. Her abundant energy found an outlet in caring for a garden of flowers and these she gave generously to the sick and suffering, and to passersby who stopped to admire them. Her generosity brought her the esteem of a large circle of friends and to them she leaves most pleasant memories of her hospitality and acts of charity.
