Stella E. Clark, daughter of Edward R. and Cordelia R. Clark, died Feb. 3, 1892 at Barrington, Ill., aged 18 years. She was born at Lake Zurich, Ill., July 31, 1873, and removed with her parents to Barrington in March, 1884, where she entered the Barrington school, from the highest department of which she was graduated at the age of 14 years, being the youngest member of her class and receiving the highest honors. Poor health interfered with active prosecution of her studies from that time.
She was a quiet, industrious and thorough worker, endowed with a bright, active mind of more than ordinary ability, and was a general favorite with all who knew her. In one of her essays her idea of death is expressed by quoting from Bryant:
“There is no Death! The leaves may fall,
The flowers may fade and pass away;
They only wait through wintry hours
The coming of the May.”
A pure, sweet, unselfish maid just blossoming into perfect womanhood; her loss will be severely felt by her family who best knew her, by her large circle of friends who were acquainted with and who thoroughly appreciated her many noble qualities, and by humanity in being deprived of one of its most potent forces for good; the example and life of an intelligent, loving and gracious woman.
