Sarah Lou Hare Phelps was born in Maryville, Kentucky, August 18,1861. Died in Slayton, Minnesota, May 3,1928. Age 66 years, 8 months and 15 days. The deceased was one of five children of the family of Mr. and Mrs. David Hare. Two sisters and her mother have preceded her in death. Her girlhood days were spent in Kentucky. Here she was married to Mr. James Phelps to whom she was a devoted wife and companion for nearly 46 years. To this union ten children were born -- Iva, Coy, Edward, Roy, Claude, John, Raymond, Maude, Minnie and May. With her husband she moved to Illinois in 1883, where they lived for about 13 years, removing then to Fort Dodge, Iowa, and 22 years ago coming to Palo Alto County. Here they have lived and served and died. Friendly, charitable, kind, patient, enduring, she made a large place for herself in the hearts of those who knew her. She had the respect and confidence of all. Very early she gave her heart to God and joined the Baptist church. Later she affiliated with the Baptist church of Curlew, Iowa and was a member of that body to the time of her death. Those who remain of the immediate family are the aged father living at Fort Dodge, Iowa. Sons and daughters -- Claude of West Bend; John of Slayton, Minnesota; Raymond of Des Moines; Mrs. Arthur Wilcox of Emmetsburg; Mrs John Korleski, Fort Dodge; Mrs Arthur Johnson, Emmetsburg; Brother C.M.Hare, Fort Dodge; Sister Mrs Joseph Crane, Dayton, Ohio.
