Hattie McCaslin Dies at Hospital Sunday Morning

Services To Be Held Tuesday Afternoon At Flinn Funeral Home After having been in failing health for a number of years, Mrs. Hattie May McCaslin, widow of the late William Edgar McCaslin, and one of the most loved women of the Hopewell community, died at Johnson County Memorial Hospital early Sunday morning [10 August 1958], shortly after midnight. Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon [12 August 1958] at 2 o'clock at the Flinn and Maguire Funeral Home, with the Rev. Carmen C. Albright, pastor of the Hopewell church, in charge. Burial will be in Greenlawn cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home at any time. Mrs. McCaslin was born Sept. 9, 1876, at Turner, Oregon, the daughter of the late Albert and Lavina E. Hogan Halstead. When she was seven years of age the family moved to Edinburg, where she lived until, after her marriage , she came to Hopewell as a bride. The remainder of her life was spent on the farm where she started housekeeping. She was married to Mr. McCaslin Oct. 25, 1899, at Edinburg. Two daughters were born to them, Miss Elizabeth and Louise, now Mrs. Paula Sievertson, both of whom have been devoted in her care. Active Church Worker In her girlhood, Mrs. McCaslin united with the Edinburg Christian church, but transferred her membership to the Hopewell Presbyterian church when she came to Hopewell to live. She was a member of the King's daughter class, in which she has held all the offices, and the Missionary Society of her church. She was the oldest living member of the Hopewell Fortnightly Club, in which she had also held several offices. In her early life, Mrs. McCaslin had studied elocution and was well known for her readings which she continued to give as long as her health permitted. She had long made a hobby of collecting pitchers and at the time of her death owned several hundred. Alway modest, unassuming and kind, she had spent most of her life in caring for others.
