Josephine Whitted Clark: Obituary

Mrs. Clark Dies At Home West Of City

Member of Pioneer Family Succumbs After Years Of Ill Health

Mrs. James G. Clark, age 69, died today at her home west of the town, following a paralytic stroke last night. Six years ago Mrs. Clark suffered a severe stroke and after she recovered sufficiently to walk around her home, fell and broke her hip. She only partially recovered from that injury and had been in poor health since.

The parents of Mrs. Clark were Enoch and Eliza Whitted, pioneers in this county and very well known over the county. Josephine Whitted Clark was born in the west part of Clinton township where her parents spent most of their lives and she too was a lifelong resident of this county. Her entire married life was spent in the Clark home where she died, which is situated at the point where the paved road west of this city forks.

Surviving relatives are her husband, James G. Clark, who has spent his life in this locality; two sons, Charles W. of the Clark Construction Co., of Terre Haute and Ernest of Seattle, Wash, who is connected with the Seattle Times; three brothers, George Whitted of West Clinton, William Whitted who lives in Alabama, and Florence, of Clinton and two sisters Mrs. Charles Adams of New Goshen and Mrs. Cora Clinton of Los Angeles. A number of grandchildren and nephews and nieces also survive.

While Mrs. Clark’s health was good, she was active in the neighborhood in which she lived and in Clinton where she and her husband had a wide circle of friends. They attended the Methodist church in Clinton.

No funeral arrangements have been announced as yet and the time of the funeral will not be set until her son in Seattle is heard from.

Josephine Whitted, 1860-1929, was the daughter of Enoch Whitted and Eliza Hise of Clinton, Indiana, and their fourth child. She was born in Clinton, Vermillion County, Indiana, and lived there her entire life. She married James G. "Charles" Clark on the first of January 1880 in Vermillion County. They had two sons, Charles W. and Ernest E. Josephine died on 11 July 1929 and was buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Clinton in the family plot. The obituary appeared in The Daily Clintonian on 11 July 1929.
