Death: Feb. 13, 1920

Grace Mae McClure, a well known and a highly esteemed young woman of Cleveland Township for many years, died at 12:20 a.m. at the hospital in Wabash of pneumonia and complications.

NOTE ~ (Her Mother in law, Sarah Elizabeth Lynn McClure, also passed away the next day from pneumonia.)

Grace was born in Cleveland Township on March 11, 1893, the daughter of B.F. and Jennie Turner. She was educated in the township schools and graduated from Logansport High School.

On October 1, 1916, she was united in marriage with Edgar L. McClure, a prosperous young farmer. They then went to make their home on his farm adjoining the city of Wabash.
To this union one child was born, who with the bereaved husband and father survive her along with the parents, Benjamin and Frances Turner and two sisters; Mrs. Beulah Keel and Ruth V. at home; also Grandparents Simeon and Hannah Huffman.

Grace Mae was a faithful member of the West Bethel M.E. Church and had many friends in the vicinity where she was raised who deeply regret her untimely departure.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at her parents home, six miles south of South Whitley with the Reverend F. E. Young officiating. Burial was made in the South Whitley cemetery.

Note ~ In the 1910 census, Grace Mae is shown living with her aunt and uncle (My Great Grandparents) Eli M.M. and Mary E. Ray.

One Son ~ Robbie Gordon McClure Born December 1919
