Obituary: The Cedar Rapids Gazette Republican, 11 Sep 1919, Cedar Rapids, Linn, Iowa, United States. 5

Ida Ellen Wiley, daughter of J. B. and Harriet Wiley, was born in Osage, Iowa, December 16, 1863 and died in Stanwood, Iowa, September 3, 1919 at the age of 55 years, 8 months and 17 days.

She was married to Alex Dun, October 13, 1881, and they resided in Ida County for 11 years. From there they moved to Clinton; but for the past 19 years they have been identified with the interests of Stanwood - 9 of which they kept hotel.

In 1906 the Mother preceded her in death and the Father in 1909. Besides the husband who sorely feels her loss she leaves a daughter, Mrs. Lula Dean of Clarence and one son, Raymond Everett of Tipton; also six grandchildren. One son, Leroy Elmer died in 1910. His widow, Dona Dunn of Davenport, survives. Two brothers, Delos of Low Moor and Frank D. of Freeport, Ill., and one adopted sister, Mrs. W. B. Robinson of Napanee, Neb., survives.

In the passing of this worthy woman well known and beloved by all, not only is the home circle bereaved, but a place is missing in church and social circles. Her abilities were recognized and her talents found empioy. Many who have been associated with her will treasure the keen friendship and kindly interest she exchanged with them.

She was a member of the Methodist Church, the choir, President of the Epworth League; the Ladies Aid; the W. F. M. S., Eastern Stars, and Cemetery Association; and until recently, teacher of a class of boys in Sunday School.

During the great War she was much interested in patriotic work and urged the Epworth League to unfurl a Service Flag, making the presentation address. Only last week she conducted a cabinet meeting and planned for its demobilization. She was a member of the recently formed W. R. C.

As a reader and entertainer she excelled and many of our people have been under her direction in amateur plays always of a helpful nature. Her work will be remembered by graduation classes of the public school, The Epworth League and other organizations. Even to the last she was full of plans for their welfare.

Her social qualities brought her in touch with all class. She was of a very tender heart and wherever there was sickness, poverty, or death she was there to administer and help if possible. What might be said in tribute to the love and devotion she bestowed upon the home circle: Home was her King-

Her sickness was of short duration impaction of the bowels. Retaining consciousness to the end which came just about the time the bells were ringing for prayer meeting Wednesday eve.

In conversation with Mrs. Cleveland she said: "I heard my mother so plainly calling ' Ida '" Not only so but the Master has called and she has gone.

"Forever with the Lord Amen so let it be
Life from the dead is in that word 'Tis Immortality"

It was fitting that her pastor Rev. Cleveland, used the same text that Rev. Fisher used at the funeral of her Mother: "I have fought a good fight"

Funeral services were conducted from the M. E. Church Friday afternoon at two o'clock. Music was furnished by the choir of which Mrs. Dunn had been a member. The flower bearers were Mrs. Harlan Miller, Mrs. Kieholtz, Mrs. Will Spear and Irma Britcher. The pallbearers were Harlan Miller, Walker Hart, John Grant, Ed Gardner, Chas. Rigby, and Jerome Wilson.

The ladies of the O. E. S. sat in a body and the Past Grand Matron, Mrs. Keyser of Cedar Rasids [sic], had charge of the services at the cemetery.

The fifteen boys who had been in Mrs. Dunn's Sunday school Class sat in a body and as they reviewed the re-mains each laid a flower upon the casket.

Interment was in the Stanwood Cemetery.

Those from out of town, who attended the funeral were; Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Dunn and Mr. and Mrs. Jno, Dunn of Central City; Mr. Will Dunn of Camanche; Mr. and Mrs. Delos Wiley and Merril Wiley of Low Moor and Frank Wiley of Freeport, Ill., besides many from near-by towns.
