Barry, Illinois was saddened Tuesday by the death of one of its most beloved matrons, Mrs. Clara Moon Coffman, who passed away at her home at the noon hour. Mrs.Coffman had been in failing health for over two years, and confined to her bed for many months, but she bore her suffering patiently and was happiest when her friends and family gathered at her bed side. She was a faithful worker in the Christian Church in Barry, giving much time and thought to its welfare. During World War I Mrs. Coffman was a leader in the Red Cross activities here and was also very active in the United Charities of Barry.

Clara, daughter of Alva and Delilah Sewell Moon, was born near Buford, Highland County, Ohio. She graduated from Buford schools and taught music in that community. She was organist in the Methodist Church there. She was married to Thomas C. Coffman at Buford and they became the parents of three children, Roberta Marie, wife of L. C. Strubinger of Jacksonville, Illinois, Gladys Florence, wife of Ewart B. Knight of Knoxville, Tennessee and Clarence Moon Coffman of Barry. Mr. Coffman preceded her in death February 13, 1938. In 1899 the Coffman family moved to Barry where they have since resided and taken a prominent part in the city's business and social life.

Mrs. Coffman is survived by her three children, five grandchildren, Carol and Linda Coffman, Keith Knight, Corinne Knight and Clara May Strubinger; sisters Mrs. Martha Matthews of Buford, Ohio and Mrs. A. F. Moberly of Normandy, Missouri and many nieces and nephews. Six brothers and two sisters preceded her in death. Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at two-thirty o'clock from the residence with Rev. Lee Anthony officiating. Interment wil be in Parklawn Cemetery.
