      OBITUARY

      Katie Irene Sole was born March 11, 1888, in the farm home where she lived until the last three years and passed away at her home in Earlham on Saturday, May 3, 1958, at the age of 70 years. She was the youngest of three children born to the union of Margaret Foglesong and Thomas Croft. A brother, Will Croft of Bricelyn, Minnesota, and a sister, Mary Ann Compton of Whittier, California, preceded her in death.

      Mrs. Sole attended school at the old Earlham Academy and graduated with the class of 1909. Following her graduation, she taught school around Earlham for eight years.

      On February 14, 1917, she was joined in marriage to Albert Sole, who preceded her in death in February, 1952.

      Mrs. Sole was a lifetime member of the First Presbyterian church in Earlham and active in the Presbyterian Women's Organization. She had just celebrated 50 years as a member of the Marguerite Rebekah Lodge of which she was a three time Past Noble Grand. She was a member of the Three-Link Club and president at the time of her death. She was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and its Past President's Club. She was active in all these organizations until the time of her death and enjoyed each one very much.

      She leaves to mourn her passing two daughters, Mrs. Helen Buche of Des Moines and Mrs. Edward Kempe of Earlham; three grandchildren, Ruth Ann Buche and Irene and Carl Kempe; a number of nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

      A devoted and loving mother and grandmother, and a loyal friend to many is gone from our midst, but her memory will remain pleasantly with us.
