Canfield, Mabel (6 June 1883 - 23 Dec. 1941)

Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Poole received a message Tuesday, Dec. 23, announcing the death of her sister, Mrs. L. R. Canfield, at 7:15 that evening at Tulsa, Okla.

Mrs. Canfield was born to Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Tyler in the Town of Lynn June 6, 1883, her given name being Mabel. She grew to womanhood in Clark County, attending the Neillsville High School. She taught school in the rural districts of Clark County for about ten years.

On the 24th day of September, 1910, she was united in marriage to Leon R. Canfield at the home of her brother, George Tyler, at Omaha, Neb., going directly to Tulsa where they had since made their home. One daughter, Mary Genevieve now Mrs. Carl Wiedeman was born to them.

Mrs. Canfield made many trips north to visit her relatives and friends. She kept in close touch with Clark County, taking a keen interest in its progress and in the welfare of the people in her girlhood community. She loved people and remembered them always for their better qualities, being extremely generous in overlooking faults.

She is survived by her husband and daughter, a granddaughter, Betty Ann Wiedeman and by a sister and a brother; Mrs. Charlie Poole, Neillsville, and George Tyler, Saginaw, Michigan, and also a half sister and a half brother; Mrs. Charles Davis, St. Paul, and Roland Babcock of Iola, Kansas. She also is survived by her father, Thomas Tyler, who is 86 years of age. Mr. Tyler had made his home with his daughter for many years.

Funeral services were held Friday at 2:30 at Tulsa.
