Obituary: Clara Holbrook Bentley
23 Aug 1987 - 16 Jun 1987
Obituary: Bentley, Clara - It is with much sadness and by the help of God that we try to write an obituary of our beloved mother, Clara Bentley. Clara was born August 23, 1897 to the late Miles M. and Flora Collins Holbrook and deceased this life June 16, 1987.She was married to the late Emery Bentley, and to this union were born five children. Her husband, one daughter, Flora Elizabeth, and one son, B. M., preceded her in death. She was a member of the Thornton Primitive Baptist Church for over thirty years and a faithful member to her church and her Lord. She was active in the Senior Citizens Quilting Group until about a year and a half ago, when she took sick and wasn't able to go.
She leaves one son, Emery Bentley of Louisville, Ky.; two. daughters, Gladys Aldridge and Lizzie M. Wright, both of May-king, Ky.; five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren; three sisters: Nannie Caudill of Whitesburg, Ky., Hazel Brown of Melvin-dale, Mich., and Marie Rose of May king, Ky. Mom was left a widow in 1933, with four children to raise by herself. She never remarried, taught us right from wrong, and to love the Lord. Mom fought a good fight. Today, we bow our heads with sad hearts over the loss of our dear and precious mother. She cannot come back to us, but by divine grace we can go to her. Our Lord gave her to us for a little while, and now she sweetly rests with the saints, which she so much deserves. But in the morning of eternity, We believe that we'll meet her again in a white robe of righteousness around that great white throne of God. No more sorrow, no more heartaches, no more tears, no more pain, no more death, and we will shout and sing forever and forever. Mommie, We Love You, Your Children and Grandchildren
