Daughter of John August "Gust" Clauson and Lottie Marie Sandahl


Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, September 30, 1926


With deep regret we note the passing away of Miss Dorothy Louise Clauson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gust Clauson, which occurred at the family home near Williamson, Iowa, on Monday morning, September 27, 1926, at the age of twenty-three years, 7 months and 26 days.

She had been in failing health for nearly four years, suffering from tuberculosis. Shw spent three years at Oakdale in the hope that her health would benefit, but returned home last May where she has since been, with her parents.

A brief funeral service was held at the home Thursday afternoon at one o'clock, and at two o'clock largely attended services were held at the Community church at Williamson, conducted by Rev. Carl Lundgren, of the First Lutheran church of Chariton. Interment took place in the family lot in the Oxford cemetery.

Dorothy Louise Clauson was born in Chariton on February 1, 1903, and resided here for several years with her parents, later moving to the vicinity of Williamson. She had a very pleasant and cheerful disposition and her kindly ways attracted and won friends of all with whom she came in contact.

She leaves to mourn their great loss her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gust Clauson, of near Williamson, and three brothers and three sisters and their families: Gilbert Clauson, of North Platte, Nebr.; Mrs. Lillian Clark, of Canadian, Texas; Walter, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Carl, of Denver, Colo.; Mrs. Ovoca Barnes, of Eddyville, Iowa; Mrs. Helen Wilson, of Oskaloosa, Iowa.

She also leaves her fiancÚ, Mr. Caryl Whitlatch, of near Williamson; and a brother-in-law, Lester Shore and a niece, Charlotte Shore, of the same vicinity; an uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Sandahl, of Lincoln township, and a host of friends.

One sister, Elenora, died in infancy and another sister, Mrs. May Shore, passed away two years ago. To all these grief stricken ones the sympathy of the entire community will be extended.
