|Mary Estella Moyer McCleary
November 6, 1885–September 29, 1959
|Mary Estella McCleary, daughter of Daniel and Susannah Hotz Moyer, was born in Jones county, Nov. 6 1885, and died of a heart attack at her home in Whittier, Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 29, at the age of 73 years, 10 months, and 23 days.
She was united in marriage to William H. McCleary at Marion June 3, 1903, after which they farmed in Jones and Linn counties most of their married life. To this union five children were born.
Mrs. McCleary was devoted to her family and was happiest when she was doing something for others. Her hobby was quiltmaking.
She will be greatly missed by her survivors who include: her son, Raymond McCleary of Whittier; three daughters, Mrs. Earle (Gladys) Blackford of Galt, Calif, Mrs. Lyle (Mabel) French of Marion, and Mrs. Edith French of Whittier; nine grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, three brothers, John, James and Frank Moyer; one sister, Mrs. Nellie Weaver and a host of other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, an infant son, her parents, one sister and two brothers.
And that link, dear Mom, was you;
But God needed another angel in heaven
And that's why he chose to take you;
We'll miss your laughter and footsteps
Your smile and your silver gray hair
But someday we promise to meet you
And all rejoice together up there.
We wish to express our sincere thanks and appriciation for the lovely flowers, cards and many other kind expressions of sympathy at the thime of our recent bereavement, the loss of our mother, Mrs. Estella McCleary.
Mr. and Mrs. Earle Blackford,
Mr. and Mrs. Lyle French,
Mrs Edith French.
