Clark, Emma A. (6 AUG 1850 - 4 FEB 1913)

Died, at Humbird, Clark County, Wis., Feb. 4, 1913, Mrs. W. H. Clark, aged 62 years, 5 months and 28 days, and was buried from her late home on Thursday, Feb. 6, 1913, the Rev. F. M. Prucia officiating. Interment was in the Garden Valley Cemetery. Six nephews, H. L. Dunn, G. A. Dunn, Henry Dunn, F. Dunn, Leonard Hobbs, and Charles Campbell acted as pallbearers.

Relatives from away who attended the funeral were O. E. Dunn, Superior; Chas. Campbell, Eau Claire, E. L. Nygaard, Oshkosh; Mrs. E. E. Crocker, Miss Blanch Crocker, Neillsville; Mrs. H. S. Cadby, Mrs. M. Dunn, Alma Center; Mrs. F. A. Parsons, Black River Falls.

Emma A. Dunn was born in Matilda, Canada, Aug. 6, 1850. When about seven years of age she came to Wisconsin with her parents, who settled in Garden Valley on the farm which is now the home of H. L. Dunn. Here she passed the years of her girlhood, excepting a few which were spent with her sister in Black River Falls. When at about the age of twenty she made her public profession of religion and united with the Baptist Church, of which she has ever since been a member. On her twenty-third birthday, Aug. 6, 1873, she was married to W. H. Clark and settled in Humbird, which has ever since been her home. She was the mother of four children, two of whom died in infancy; those living are Mrs. Elmer L. Nygaard of Oshkosh, and Carroll Clark, instructor in the College of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn. She was the youngest of a family of twelve children, and is survived only by the eldest, Mrs. Jane Dillabo of Black River Falls.

We do not consider it necessary to write an extended obituary for one who has lived for over half a century in this vicinity. Her friends knew her worth and the world in general is not slow in detecting imperfections wherever they may exist. The kindness and attention and the many floral offerings received during the long weary days of waiting for the Death Angel, attest more fully than any words that could be written.
