She was the daughter of John Reese and Emma Marie Knauss.1 Zona Priscilla Reese married Everett Clare Newell, son of Plimpton Kelly Newell and Mary Elizabeth Morford, on 27 October 1920 at Pratt Co., KS. Zona Priscilla Reese died on 28 November 1943 at Stafford Co., KS, at age 49 OBITUARY:

Mrs. Clare Newell

Zona Priscilla Reese was born May 8, 1894 near Little River, Kans. She passed away on Nov. 28, 1943 at Feldhut Hospital in Stafford, Kans., at the age of 49 years 6 months and 23 days.

Her parents, Emma and John Reese had migrated in the early days from Pennsylvania. In her early childhood the family moved to Pratt county, four and one-half miles northeast of Pratt. Here Zona grew to young womanhood, and graduated from Pratt high school. Later she attended Normal there and also Teachers College at Emporia. She taught two years in Antrim schools and finished her career as a teacher at the Eureka school in the spring of 1920.

Zona was united in marriage to Everett Clare Newell on Oct. 27, 1920 at Pratt, Kans. To this happy union five children were born, Beth Kathleen, Lois Maxine, Calvin Clare, Dean Lee, and Wayne Everett.

In this good Christian home these children have been patiently and lovingly taught the right ways of living.

Zona professed her faith in Christ, her Lord, at an early age, and joined the Christian church at Pratt, where she remained a faithful member, until she joined her husband in the Eureka Methodist church at the time of her marriage. She has enjoyed working in the Sunday School and in different departments of the church and in the community.

She loved flowers. It was a hobby with her to grow and share them with others.

About four years ago her health began to fail, which caused her to be missing from her accustomed place at times. During several months she has been cared for lovingly by all her family. All that skill and love could do has been finished, and the Heavenly Father, who doeth all things well, called her gently away to a better land, in the evening of Nov. 28.

We love to think of her happy disposition, her kind consideration for others, her sweet and ready smile, her good hospitality.

She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband Clare, and five children, also four sisters, Mrs. Clara Cochran, Wichita; Mrs. Fannie Bigwood, Pratt; Mrs. Sadie Armstrong, Pratt; Mrs. Abbie Sherrell, Wichita, her stepmother Mrs. Emma Reese, Allentown, Pa., and two brothers, Eli Reese, Pratt, and Milton C. Reese, Modesto, Calif., and a host of friends and relatives.

The funeral was held in the Eureka Methodist church Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 2:30 p.m. Rev. J. Ralph Watkins, pastor of the church, delivered the sermon. Peacock & Soice were in charge. Interment was in the Stafford cemetery.
