Ethel Clemons Bunton Obituary

from The Harrodsburg Herald, Mercer County, Kentucky

Friday, February 17, 1911

Mrs. Ethel Clemons Bunton, wife of William N. Bunton, and only child of G. W. and Patsy J. Clemons, was born April 25th, 1884, near Greensburg, Indiana; died January 31, 1911, at Yuma, Arizona, aged 26 years, 9 months and 6 days.  On February 14, 1898, she united with the Baptist church at Greenwood, Indiana, and during the years that have passed gave good evidence that she had been made a partaker of that blessed hope.

At the time of her death her membership, with that of her husband, was with the Baptist church at Greensburg.  On March 2, 1904, at Greenwood, she was united in marriage to William N. Bunton, son of S. B. Bunton, who lives near Salvisa, Kentucky.

After their marriage they traveled in different states and then located in Greesnburg, at which place they resided until nearly two years ago when her health began to fail; her husband then moved with her to Arizona, thinking the change to a milder climate would be a benefit to her health.  She had tuberculosis and the change only proved to be temporary.

Death had an order to follow her to her Arizona home and claim his victim, but that also is temporary.  Her faith in Christ will release her from the bondage of sin and death.  Her death leaves motherless two little boys, Joseph and William, aged respectively 5 and 2 years, and brings bereavement to her husband, father, relatives and friends, her mother having preceded her nearly three years ago.  The funeral service was held February 7, 1911, conducted by Rev. J. V. Fradenburgh, her pastor at the Union Baptist Church, near Greensburg, interment at Union Cemetery.
