He was in the shoe repair business here for more than 20 years, retiring in 1937 when his health forced him to give up active work. For the past four years, Mr. Clingenpeel has been failing in health and was patiently cared for by Mrs. Clingenpeel until the end. Had he lived until Saturday of this week, Mr. and Mrs. Clingenpeel would have observed their 22nd wedding anniversary. Funeral services were held at the Methodist Church Tuesday afternoon, October 26, the Rev. H.G. Feldmann officiating. Music was furnished by a mixed quartet composed of Mrs. Ethel Thurston, Mrs. Maude Warren, B.S. Chance and H.D. Hoskins, accompanied at the piano by Alva S. Adams. Pallbearers were B.M.
