Sunday's Obituary ~ Zora E. Clarke

From the January 26, 1940 edition of the Funkstown (Maryland) Daily Mail;

"Mrs. Zora Highbarger, widow of John Highbarger, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. William King, Woodburg, Baltimore County, on Thursday afternoon, at 2:00 o'clock.

She was born and reared in Downsville but has lived in Baltimore for the past 20 years. She was a member of the Zion Reformed Church.

Surviving are: daughters, Mrs. Rena McGill, Washington, D.C., and Mrs. Vernie King, Baltimore, and two grandchildren. The body will be brought here on Saturday morning at 11:45 o'clock with services at 12:30 o'clock at Funkstown cemetery by the Rev. Scott R Wagner.

Friends and relatives will meet at the A.K. Coffman Funeral home at 12:00 o'clock."

Zora E. Clark(e) Highbarger is my 2nd great-grand aunt, born 19 Aug 1857. She lived in Maryland her entire life and died there 25 Jan 1940. Zora's unique name has been priceless in my search for her parents and 10 siblings.
