Clouse, Frank (4 SEP 1862 - 1 NOV 1927)
Frank Clouse, a son of Bernhard and Nancy Clouse, was born at Iron Ridge, Wisconsin Sept 4, 1862 and departed this life at the Sacred Heart hospital, Eau Claire, Wis. Nov. 1, 1927, at the age of 65 years, one month and 27 days. When but a lad of five years, he came with his parents to the vicinity of Loyal and settled on a farm, which business he followed until 1918 when he moved to the late home in the village.
March 21, 1880 he was united in marriage to Miss Sarah Rogers, with whom he was permitted to spend a little more than forty seven years in wedlock. To this union seven children were born, six of whom together with the wife and mother Mrs. Sarah Rogers Clouse, survive. The children are; Fred l. and Wallace J. Loyal, Wis., Ernest B. Greenwood, Wis., Mrs. Clarence Dunn, Owen, Wis., Mrs. Ben Kadolph and Mrs. Lawrence Bowman, Loyal, Wis., Mrs. C. W. Smith, deceased and who preceded her father to the great beyond January 31, 1919. He also leaves one brother, Charles Clouse, Loyal, Wis., fifteen grand children, one great-grand son and a host of friends to mourn his departure.
Mr. Clouse was at his best as a husband and father in his own home and with the members of his family, for he found no special pleasure in any of the diversions of life. His Sanctum-Sanstorum and Holy of Holies was the fireside of his own home. He was a good and reliable neighbor, honest and upright, a model citizen and a true friend. At the time of his death, he was a member of the board of trustees ans property committee of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Loyal, Wisconsin.
He will be missed by both his family and his friends, and yet: "Why lo we worry about the road, With its hill or deep ravine? A dismal path or a heavy load, We are helped by hands unseen."
Funeral services were conducted Friday afternoon, Nov. 4, 1927 at the residence at 1 o’clock and from the Methodist Church at 1:30 o’clock, the Rev. G. C. Wadding, pastor officiating. Interment was made in the Pine Grove Cemetery by the side of his parents.
