Martha Jane Clarence

Funeral services were held at the Knosher Funeral Home Tuesday, January 15, for Martha Jane Clarence, long-time resident of Klickitat county, who died Friday at Skyline hospital in White Salmon.

She was born in the Spring Creek district west of Goldendale, March 30, 1875, a daughter of Perry and Mary Hollett. She was the fourth of seven children, all of whom preceded her in death.

On June 24, 1890, she was joined in marriage to Grant Ulysses Clarence. To this union were born five children. After her marriage she resided in Yakima briefly, leaving to spend two years in Nebraska. She returned to Klickitat county, homestead in the Crofton Prairie district where she made her home until 1952, when she moved back to Spring Creek to make her home with her son, Floyd. In 1953, she moved to Bingen.

Mrs. Clarence's husband died March 25, 1937. She is survived by three sons; Floyd, Bingen; Glen, Houghton, Wash., and Wesley, Klickitat; five grandchildren and four great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; among them Maidie Brazelton, Goldendale. One of Mrs. Clarence's sons died in infancy; a daughter, Myrtle Dickerson, died in January 1962.

Mrs. Clarence was a member of Goldendale Grange No. 49 for over 40 years, and a member of Leah Rebekah Lodge 35 years.
