Pub. The Times, May 4, 1918

Laura Flint, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adrian Flint was born in Hamilton County, Illinois, August 27, 1867.  She spent her entire life in this county.  She lived here for 50 years, 7 months and 13 days and departed this life April 11, 1918.

She was united in marriage to George Cluck, January 10, 1886. To this union were born four children, two of the children and her husband preceded her into the Great Beyond. She professed faith in Christ at an early age and united with the Knights Prairie Baptist church and remained a consistent Christian member until the Lord said it is enough, come up higher.

She was a loving mother and a kind neighbor.  She suffered several months but bore her lingering illness with patience, always appreciative of any kindness shown her.  Mrs. Cluck had not passed far beyond the noontide of life, and the shadows began to lengthen towards the east when being weary stopped for a rest and fell into that dreamless sleep.  She came to death the place at which the little stream of life merges into the ocean of eternity.  She has gone the way of life and returned to her eternal home to be with her loved ones and await our coming.  She told us a few days before leaving the world she was ready for the hour of death.

She leaves to mourn her loss, two children, Mrs. Elvis Pritchott of McLeansboro and Roy Cluck of Mark, Mo.  She also leaves three grandchildren, one brother, Mr. C. A. Flint, one sister, Mrs. Dora McDaniel and one half sister, Mrs. Nellie Wheeler, and many other relatives and friends.  Funeral was held at Knights Prairie, April 12, condu ted by N. C. Henderson assisted by Rev. T. B. Hunt.  The body was consigned to earth in the cemetery at that place.
