Robert Cline Housden
The entire community of Stanley was grieved over the passing of Robert Cline Housden, a lifelong resident of the Stanley and vicinity section. He was a man, when in good health, to be out and about his business and led a very active life. He was much interested in community and civic affairs. Mr. Housden had been in failing health for some years and had been under the care of a physician and had been under treatment at different intervals at the R.M. Hospital at Harrisonburg. He passed away at his home near Stanley on Saturday afternoon, March 23, about 3:30 at the age of 69 years, 6 months and 5 days. His death is the result of a complication of diseases extending over a period of the past six months. He was the son of the late James and Sidney Ann Alger Housden, both of the Newport section. Mr. Housden married Delsie Housden in August 1898 and to this union were born the following children who survive with their mother: Vernon Housden of Luray; Clarence Housen of Stanley; Mrs. Beulah Easton of Warsaw,Ohio; Mrs. Zettie Seekford, of Falling Waters, W.Va.; Mrs. Mabel Mauck, Moraca, Pa.; Bernard Housden, of Luray; Herman Housden, of Stanley; Bobby Housden, of Luray; Mrs. Eltie Keefer, of Moraca, Pa.; Mrs. Zula Huffman, of Stanley, and Misses Edna and Mary Housden at home. Thirty five grandchildren also survive. He was a faithful mmember and loyal supporter of the Church of the Brethren. The funeral was held from the Leak's Chapel Church yesterday afternoon at 2:30 with Elders Long and Joseph Foster, of Bridgewater assisting the Reverend E.L. Cave with the service. Interment took place in the church cemetery.
