Sarah Lavins Clinton died at the home of her son, Mr. and Mrs. Harley D. Clinton of Whittington of February 18, 1950. Her wake was at the home of her daughter, Evelyn and Alonzo Beasley at Whittington. Her funeral was in Rescue Freewill Baptist Chruch. Rev. Lepton Harpole, Rev. W.R. Burton, and Rev. Mac Vanway officiated. (This is the same W.R. Burton who helped with Dad's funeral.) The pianist was Norma Burton Johnston. The soloist was Leota Johnston Beard. The Rescue Choir sang the song Mother liked so well, An Empty Mansion. The pallbearers were 6 of her grandsons: Eldon Kern, Thomas Clinton, Darrell Kern, John Douglas Martin, Stanley Shaffer, and Joe Clinton. She is buried at Kirk Cemetery near Ina, Illinois. Mother was a loving and forbearing Christian lady. Is there a higher or greater tribute!
