LOAFMAN, Eva KENNON
b: Feb 14 1882, Polk Co, MO
d: Mar 23 1934, Kansas City, Jackson Co, MO
bur:
Englewood Cemetery LA-LY, Clinton, Henry Co, MO
ESTEEMED WOMAN PASSES -- A new day brought surcease from pain to Mrs. H. H. Loafman who went to her eternal reward at 1:30 a.m. Friday, at the St. Joseph's Hospital in Kansas City, where she had been taken Thursday morning for an operation. She had been in failing health for some time, but became suddenly worse this week, Eva Kennon was born February 14, 1882, in Polk county, Missouri, near Bolivar. Here she grew to radiant young Womanhood and was united in marriage to H. H. Loafman in 1901. Mr. and Mrs. Loafman came to Clinton to reside about 20 years ago. Mr. Loafman has been a Frisco engineer for many years. Mrs. Loafman was ever a faithful companion to her husband and helped and encouraged him in every undertaking. They were devoted to each other and found the greatest enjoyment in each other's company. Mrs. Loafman's journey on earth covered 52 years, of which 33 years were devoted to wifehood and motherhood in which she excelled. Possessing the true heart of a woman, she found the deepest joy in taking care of her home and rearing her children to be honest, upright citizens. She had 11 children, three of whom preceded her. Her contribution to humanity were eight fine children--clean in body and spirit, courteous, helpful and kind. Her unselfish love and wisdom gave these children unfailing counsel in every hour of need and she worked unceasingly for their comfort and happiness. She was devoted to her children, yet firm in the moulding of their character to be true Christians and esteemed citizens. Because of her influence, each of these children are professing Christians. Mrs. Loafman's home was always neat and shining, brightened by many house flowers which she tended carefully. The children were likewise clean and well-dressed, with the glow of happiness on their faces. When a young girl Mrs. Loafman accepted Christ and thereafter lived the pure life of the true Christian, with a strong faith in Christ and the Bible. She believed in secret prayer and spent many hours in lone communication with her Master, asking for His guidance in times of sorrow and distress and thanking Him always for His blessings. With eight small children to wash and dress each Sunday morning and send off clean and happy to Sunday school, she was often unable to accompany them herself, but she kept the faith and later would slip in silently and take a seat in time for the preaching services. Since the children have grown older she loved to attend the church services and missionary societies regularly, finding great pleasure in these associations with God's people. She was a member of the Clinton Baptist Church. A woman of wonderful sweetness of spirit, Mrs. Loafman brought peace and happiness to those about her. She was always quiet and modest, which qualities endeared her to everyone. The boys and girls whom her children brought home with them to spend an evening or a night loved her, for they appreciated her quiet charm and meticulously clean home, as well as the good times they enjoyed. Surviving her are her beloved husband and children: Mesdames Harvey Albin, Rolla Houts, and Will Docherty, Clinton; Robert, who is attending college at Edmond, Okla., and came home Friday night; Misses Oleta, Hazel, Mary Louise, and Dorothy Loafman of the home. Also two sisters, Mrs. John Gulick and Miss Nora Kennon, Morrisville, Mo. The funeral services were conducted at the Baptist Church in Clinton on Saturday. Burial was in Englewood under the direction of Spore & Son. Out-of-town relatives and friends who attended the funeral were: Mesdames John Gulick and Everett Grant and Miss Nora Kennon, Morrisville, Mo.; Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Blakey, Wishart, Mo., T. J. Joafman, son, Glenn and daughter, Miss Corrine, Edmond, Okla.; her son, Robert Loafman, who is attending State Teachers College at Edmond, Okla.; also Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Liffee of Kansas City, and Wilbur Pilant, Lamar.

Olsen and September 29, 1937, both he and his sister professed their faith and united with the Second Street Methodist Church. His only survivors are his wife and sister.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Charles Henry Long, 77, Clinton, died Monday, January 8, 1996, at Golden Valley Memorial Hospital, Clinton. Charles Henry Long, son of Preston Long and Estelle Rombold, was born January 17, 1918, on the family farm near the Methodist Church at White Oak. He was the fifth child and the second son in the Long family. He had six brothers and three sisters. Preceded him in death were an infant brother, William, Cecil, Ester Fae, Lee Roy, Loren and Raymond. Surviving are Clara Belle Odle of Texas and Ethel Mae Clary of Clinton. There were two boys born in White Oak on that snowy, winter night of January 17 and Charlie was lucky that the country doctor stopped his horse and buggy at the Long farm first. The neighbor baby boy died that same night. He married Ruby Irene Doll, June 22, 1938. He and Ruby celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary this past year. On their 50th anniversary they had a large party planned, but Charlie had to take some time out for major surgery and in his usual, casual style he said that he was sorry that he had changed everyone's plans but that they could always make it up next year. Charlie and Ruby had one daughter, Nancy Jean, who was born in Clinton and lived in Ballard and Old Piper where her parents purchased the local gas station and later in 1950, the Old Piper store. Charlie first did trucking of livestock and grain and then decided that he wanted to be more at home than on the road. It was at that time that the gas station at Ballard and the Old Piper store became so important to his family life. The store supplied groceries to the local neighbors and became the meeting place for many families. Charlie also sold fertilizer and lime and spent much of the time delivering and spreading it to the farms in the area while Ruby ran the store and made sandwiches for many of those who stopped to chat or stock up for the week. This store and all of its activity became the center of the family for Nancy and later her children. The three grandchildren, R. C., Mike and Becky, spent many hours with their grandfather and grandmother, helping around the store, riding on the fertilizer and lime trucks, helping to mark the rows of grain by standing in the fields while their granddad drove the truck, and including them in almost everything that he needed to do. He dearly loved his daughter and grandchildren and influenced them in their early years, teaching them his love for the land and the outdoors, his love of hunting and fishing, his respect for others, his way of kindness, his care for his friends and family, his strong sense of honor and character, and his special way of humor. After 33 years at Old Piper, it was time to retire and move to a new family home in Clinton. The "dream home" was completed in 1984, with much of the design and construction handled by R. C. The move from old to new was a difficult adjustment at first, but with all the happiness and support from their old friends and their new, the home on Tracy became another gathering place and another home of joy. Charlie enjoyed his retirement because it left him more time to spend with Ruby and his family, and also to pursue his love for fishing, hunting, playing pool, morning coffee and chats with his friends, and time to spend with his great-grandchildren, Justin and Jeff, (R. C.'s sons), and Becky's two boys, Scott and Landon. It also gave him a special time to visit his grandson, Mike, who now lived with his wife, Lisa, at the Old Piper house, and relive so many of the so many of the childhood hunting and fishing memories that he had shared with his family. Retirement was also a time that he and Ruby could be together after all those years of hard work from lantern to lantern. Many years were spent together on opening day at Bennett Springs and now during retirement, every day could be an opening day if they chose it. Charlie leaves behind a wife, a daughter, three grandchildren; four great-grandchildren, two sisters, a few fishing and pool buddies and many other friends. But most of all he leaves behind a lot of memories that have shaped and influenced all of our lives, in ways we realize especially today and in other ways that we will understand our reflections of him in the future. He is now in heaven with the greatest fisherman of all. Goodbye, Charlie, Dad, Granddad, Greatgranddad, we love you. Funeral services were held at the Clinton United Methodist Church Thursday, January 11. Burial was in Englewood Cemetery.

Clinton MO - WAR CASUALTIES IN COUNTY MOUNT WEEKLY "The Secretary of War desires me to express his deep regret that your son, Sgt. Elton L. Long was killed in action on the twenty-seventh day of December in France. Confirming letter follows." Dunlop, acting Adjutant General. This was the sad message the telegraph boy conveyed to Sgt. Long's father, Stevie Long East Green Street, Clinton, Wednesday last week. Mrs. Long received a letter from her husband Tuesday before the fatal message was received. Written on Christmas day it spoke of handkerchiefs being rationed in England where he had been stationed and where he had been unable to purchase one for her handkerchief collection of which he was justly proud. A package received from him the week previous was in the box she had posted candy to her soldier husband. In it was his good conduct ribbon, Glider wings, European theater of war ribbon, English coins and a picture of himself-taken in England. Solemn and determined, no smile played across his pleasant face altho the young wife hungrily studied the tin-type style of picture, conscious of the minutest detail. While in England Sgt. Long was stationed about 22 miles from his brother SSgt. Arthur Long, who "discovered" his whereabouts through the Red Cross. Arthur, in the medical corps, was surprised one day to feel a pat on the back and looking up beheld his own brother. They enjoyed a number of happy weekends together before Arthur was moved into France weeks previous to Elton's. Elton Long entered the service April 13, 1943 and received his basic training at Camp Mackall with the 17th Airborn division of the 193rd Glider Infantry. After six weeks of maneuvers in February and March of '44 he was stationed at Camp Forrest, Tenn. August found him at the port of embarkation from whence he sailed to England. Born May 4, 1917, he was the second son of Stevie and Ethel Long who resided about six miles south of Urich. His mother preceded hi in death 16 years to the day of Elton's passing. The father true to the mother's memory and love reared the children and their lives he has woven the fragrance of her sweet spirit. Elton grew to manhood in this vicinity where he was converted and baptized in the Methodist church at White Oak. March 11, 1939 he was married to Miss Ruth Ellerman of LaDue. They lived a few months at Lincoln then came to Clinton where Elton was employed at Larabee mill. When he entered the service they were living in Pleasanton, Kans., where he was in the maintenance department of the Frisco railroad having served them two years. When his call to arms came he moved their furniture to a cottage at 801 East Franklin street, Clinton, as this young soldier was deeply in love with his wife and home which he visioned and hoped to come back to. This house holds their cherished earthly possessions. His wife knowing that God's greatest gift-domestic happiness comes not from things but from being together stayed close by his side while he received his training in the states. Whether it was room or a trailer camp he found contentment and abiding peace under blue skies away from camps or into the bit of heaven she built from the love in her heart. When her left for overseas, Mrs. Long secured work at the H. D. Lee Wholesale house in the city as this fine young couple planned to buy a farm after the war and she thought it best to work and save toward their future. Her mother, the late Mrs. Frank Ellerman, passed away in Kansas City in October '44. Surviving are his heartbroken wife who is at the home of her husband's people in Clinton, his father, two brother, SSgt. Arthur Lon gin France' Sgt. Wayne Long in India and three sister, Mrs. M. D. Snow, Pittsburg, Kansas; Mrs. Robert E. Ferguson, North 4th Street and Mrs. Robert Moor who lives with her father on East Green street, Clinton.

White Oak Cemetery, Walker Twp, Henry Co, MO
Young Mother Dead - Ola Ethel Caldwell, the youngest child of Wm. M and Columbia J. Caldwell, was born July 7, 1889, and departed this life at her home south of Urich, December 27, 1928, at the age of 39 years, 5 months and 20 days. On December 18, 1912, she was united in marriage to Stevie Long. To this union seven children were born, six of whom survive. One dying in infancy. We cannot tell of any definite time when she was converted for she always lived very near her Lord. She united with the White Oak M. E. church early in life, and lived a very faithful member to the end. Her chief aim in life was to bring her children up to be good and true to their Heavenly Father, and as a good mother she set the right kind of an example before them. Her life was one of loving service. She gave it for her family. The family became ill with the flu epidemic about one week before Christmas, and as a faithful mother she ministered to them all until she, too, was compelled to give up and lay down never to rise again to labor for the ones she so dearly loved. She suffered much from her illness until Thursday morning, December 27, when the sweet angel of release came and the patient sufferer went home to be with her Christ. Besides her husband, Stevie Long, and her six children, she is survived by one brother, four sisters and a host of other relatives and friends. Funeral services were conducted at the White Oak M. E. church by the Rev. Walker W. Long, of Higginsville, Mo., assisted by the Rev. Geo. M. Hansford, of Appleton City, and the Rev. H. L. Hoover, Creighton, December 29, and the remains were laid to rest in the White Oak cemetery. It is sometimes hard for us to understand why a young mother should be taken from those they so dearly love. Why they should be taken from their little ones and leave them alone to grow up without the tender lover and care of a mother. And the best conclusion I think we can come to is this, "Heaven, in all its splendor cannot be complete without the glory of a mother's love. And another mother has God called home, and somewhere up there beyond the skies in that home, not made with hands, is another mother, watching and waiting, beckoning beyond the vale of tears while her gentle inspiration hovers here with the wonderful benediction that only a mother's love can give. "She is gone, but not forgotten, There will be a vacant chair, Of a patient loving mother, Help us meet her is our prayer." Rev. H. L. Hoover

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Jul 14 2004 - Ruby Irene Long, daughter of Herman William Doll and Cora Bell Woirhaye Doll, was born March 10, 1919 on the family farm south of Urich.

Preceding her in death were her husband Charles Henry Long, and her parents. Ruby and Charles owned and operated Old Piper Store, a general county store for 33 years. Ruby managed the store, selling feed, fertilizer, groceries and making sandwiches and dipping ice cream cones. In her day it was two dips for a nickel, especially for the local Piper school children. After 33 years at Old Piper it was time to retire and move to a new family home in Clinton. The dream home was completed in 1984. The move from the old to the new was a difficult adjustment at first, but with all the happiness and support from old friends and new ones, the home on Tracy Drive became another gathering place and another home of joy. As difficult as it was to change her home from Piper to Clinton, so too was it difficult for Ruby to change her place of worship from the old white Oak Methodist Church where she had grown up, to the Clinton United Methodist Church, but she decided in June 1988 to make the change and the friendships soon followed. Ruby joined the Golden Valley Hospital Auxiliary and enjoyed greeting and visiting with the patients and people and working in the gift shop. She was at home doing what she did best, making people around her feel comfortable. She also joined the Clinton Country Club where she enjoyed the social events of luncheons, card playing and dominoes with the ladies and the couples on Wednesday evenings. she was also active in the coffee and chat groups that met in the mornings at the various restaurants in Clinton, and she could be seen driving around Clinton attending to her appointments on most days of the week. In her later years, many of her routines were spent with Glendon, her friend and companion. Ruby had an infectious sense of humor and enjoyed the give and take of her family and friends. She was always ready to add to conversations her thoughts and ideas and was feisty in her own gentle way. She placed some thoughts in her Bible that captured the life she succeeded at living. Believe in yourself. Don't give up and don't give in. Family and friends are hidden treasures. Seek them enjoy their riches. Hang on to your dreams. Keep on trying. No matter how hard it seems, it will get easier. On the frontispiece of her Bible she wrote this prayer, "Dear God, whenever we fell sad, overwhelmed and discouraged, help us to remember that you will provide what we need." Amen. Thank you Ruby, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother for all that you have given us. Funeral services were held at the Clinton United Methodist Church Wednesday, June 30. Burial was in Englewood Cemetery, Clinton.

Ronald J. Lovan was born on May 26, 1929 in Jonesboro, Arkansas to Norman & Dora Clingan Lovan. Ron came from a family that believed that laughter, love, and helping others were the important things in life. His early years laid the foundation for a lifetime of laughter, love and devotion to his family and friends. Ron truly had a “servant’s heart” which he and Mary instilled in their children and grandchildren. The door of their home was always open to anyone who was in need of a place to lay their head. Ron or “Ronnie” as he was called in his early years, graduated from Windsor High School in 1947 where he was a 3 year letterman in basketball & attended Central Missouri State College where he lettered in track. It is said that Ron was a trendsetter in his high school years like the time when he and a fellow classmate showed up at a basketball game with “flat top” haircuts. By the end of the week, many of the other boys were also sporting one. It was during his high school years that he met Mary Helen Johnson, the country girl who would later become his wife. Ron and Mary were married at the Windsor United Methodist Church on July 8, 1950 where their devotion and love for one another continued for nearly 59 years. On December 28, 1950, during the Korean War, Ron enlisted in the United States Air Force and was stationed in San Rafael, Ca. This is where he and Mary lived when their first child, Teresa Gayle, was born on August 15, 1952. During the first year of Teresa’s life Ron was stationed in Korea. Upon his discharge from the Air Force on December 6, 1954, they returned from Tacoma, Wa., to their home in Windsor. On March 6, 1955 Ron and Mary’s second child, Gary Eugene, was born. During this time, Ron was a salesman for the Singer Sewing Machine Company. In 1956, Ron and Mary moved to Sedalia, Mo where Ron began a career that would span 30 years, with the USDA-Federal Crop Insurance Division. While living in Sedalia their third child, Susan Elaine, was born on April 25, 1961. While living in Sedalia, Ron and Mary made many life-long friends and were active members of First United Methodist Church. In 1971, Ron and Mary moved to Bryan Texas where he continued his work with Federal Crop Insurance. It was during this time that his “Servant’s Heart” became very apparent as he supported Mary through many health problems. Not only did he support Mary but he was known for helping anyone who needed assistance. For nearly 40 years they were members of First United Methodist Church in Bryan where Ron served “the Lord” in countless ways such as ushering and serving as President of the United Methodist Men. Upon his retirement in 1986 Ron worked as a salesman for World Book Encyclopedias. Many families and schools in Bryan could not turn down the sales pitch Ron gave about a product he felt was vital to a child’s education. In 2000, Ron and Mary moved to Waldenbrook Estates where they helped other residents in need by serving as Howdy Buddies. After his beloved Mary’s death in 2009, Ron moved back to Missouri to be nearer to family whom he had lived apart from for years and to “come home” to a place that he loved. Most importantly Ron loved and served his grandchildren and great grandchildren who affectionately called him “Grandaddy.” He will lovingly be remembered by them for the many times he took them to Dairy Queen, cheered them on at a sporting event, dance recital or other activity, played games or horsie until his back was surely tired and held and gently bounced them in his arms when as a young child they were restless. Grandaddy never tired of doing anything and everything with each of them. Survivors include his son and daughter-in-law, Gary and Krys Lovan of Battle Ground, Wa.; two daughters and sons-in-law, Teresa and Russell Gabbert of Kansas City, Mo., and Susan and David O’Neal of Bryan, Tx.; 5 grandchildren, Brandon Lovan (Melissa), Edwards, Co.; Garrett Lovan (Lauren), College Station, Tx.; Erin VanCleave, Kansas City, Mo.; Adriane LaCaze (Terry), Kansas City, Mo.; Caitlyn Gabbert, Columbia, Mo.; Erin Guidroz (Jason), Orangefield, Tx.; Dustin O’Neal (Sarah), Tomball, Tx.; Lindsey O’Neal, San Marcos, Tx.; Austin O’Neal, Austin, Tx.; Mackenzie O’Neal, Bryan, Tx.; 9 great-grandchildren; a sister, Linda Marchbanks (Bill), Windsor, Mo.; their children Valorie Tate (Billy); Ronald Scott Marchbanks (Penny); Gina McDonnold (Jason) and their families; three sisters-in-law, Ann Dial, Jacksonville, Fl.; Doris Hale, Baton Rouge, La.; Dorothy Alexander (Dwight), Clinton, Mo.; and many other nieces, nephews and friends. Ron passed away peacefully, surrounded by the “Fab 5 plus 1”, on Wednesday, January 23, 2013, at the Kansas City Hospice House. His family is at peace knowing that Ron and Mary are united again and will live happily ever after in the arms of the Lord. A Celebration of Ron’s Life will be held at Windsor United Methodist Church on Monday, January 28, 2013. Burial will be in the Laurel Oak Cemetery and Military Honors will be provided by Clinton VFW 1894 at the graveside.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Monday Nov 1 1999 - George Ralph Lowe, Jr. was born March 19, 1916, to Ralph and Laura (Shellabarger) Lowe, in Louisa County; Iowa. He graduated from Letts, Iowa High School and was a post-graduate student at Columbia High. He attended Chillicothe Business College and during the summer break in 1936, went to work for the Nourse Oil Company of Kansas City. What was meant to be only a summer job rapidly became a full-time position. In 1940 he and Darline moved to Clinton as it was more central to his sales district. He found time to pitch in semi- professional softball in the 194Os. During World War II, he was a flight instructor in the CPT program and enlisted in the United States Navy toward the latter part of the war. He established Clinton's first airport in 1946 and was the first station agent for the then, fledgling Ozark Airlines, which operated between Springfield and Kansas City, with an "as-needed" stop in Clinton. Ralph established the Lowe Oil Company in 1958 and included his three sons in the business. It was as the development/owner of Lowe Oil Company that Ralph is best remembered by many in our city - as an excellent and very fair businessman. He is remembered as a member of the "old school" that believed a man's word was his bond and that a handshake was as good as a contract. He remained active in the family business until his stroke in 1993. In a very real sense. Ralph's life was centered in his work, which may have been due in part to his having come into adulthood in the Depression. And if his work was at the center of his life, the golf course was his beloved hobby. Golf was always important to him. but his greatest joy and pride came in seeing that the course he established was kept well groomed. Always concerned with the well-being of his community. Ralph served as a Clinton city councilman, president of the Clinton School Board, a member of the Missouri Clean Water Commission, and was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention. He was a longtime member of the First Presbyterian Church of Clinton, a 50-year member of the American Legion, a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason - Clinton Lodge No.548, and a member of the KAABA Shrine of Davenport, Iowa. Having noted these activities and memberships, it is important to observe that Ralph was not one to seek public acclaim or the spotlight, but was content to do much good "behind the scenes", helping many without bringing attention to himself or embarrassment to those he helped. Ralph continued to reside in his home until he was hospitalized at Golden Valley Hospital on October 14, 1999. It was there that he died early Sunday morning, October 24. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his only brother, Dean Lowe, and his wife of nearly 55 years, Darline (Masonholder) Lowe. He is survived by his three sons, G. R. and wife Martha, Greg and wife Carlene, and David and wife Shirley, all of Clinton. Also surviving are grandchildren, Cynthia Groff, Jeff Lowe, Chris Lowe, Kim Mitchell, Matt Lowe and Megan Lowe, all of Clinton. and Sara Jane Komer of Springfield. He is also survived by six great-grandchildren. Annie, Hayden and Allie Lowe, Duncan and Nolan Groff and Courtney Angelhow. Among the tributes paid by his family are these words: He was a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. Ralph will always remain special in the hearts and memories of his family." And brother-in-law Paul adds: "Ralph was more than a brother-in-law. He was an excellent friend." Funeral services were held at the, First Presbyterian Church on Tuesday, October 26. Pall bearers were grandsons Chris Lowe, Matt Lowe and Jeffrey R. Lowe and grandsons-in-law, Tony Komer, Dr. Gary Groff and Eric Mitchell. Burial was in the Englewood Cemetery, Clinton.

Clinton MO, Jul 25 1891 - With sorrow, we chronicle the death of our honored friend, John Loyd, which occurred last Monday morning at 1 a.m. at his residence in Fields Creek township, three miles northwest of Clinton. Mr. Loyd was 75 and a resident of this county for 40 years, a man of strictest integrity, industrious, frugal and persistent to do the right. He had seen more of sorrow and misfortune than is usual to the life of man. Of sixteen children, there were none to gather about his dying couch and call him father - all of them had died either at the prime of life or in infancy. His last child, a manly young man of scarce thirty, died five years ago; twelve of his family died within a space of five years, between 1880 and 1885, of that dread disease known as the quick consumption. He leaves a widow of seventy the sadness of whose life is that of her husband's relieved only by a steadfast and enduring Christian faith.
