William N. McClelland - Sunday's Obituary

William McClelland, known to us as Cub, was the husband of one of my father's cousins.

"William N. McClelland Dies; Services Set
     "SHARON, Pa. --- William N. McClelland, 62, of 145 Lyle Drive, Hickory Township, died at 8:40 p.m. Sunday in Sharon General Hospital following an illness of several months.
     "Mr. McClelland was born Aug. 12, 1904, in Stoneboro, a son of Joseph and Elizabeth Newell McClelland.  He had retired March 1 after working 42 years at the Westinghouse Electric Corp.  He was a member of Oakland Methodist Church and the Masonic Orders.
     "He leaves his wife, the former Evelyn Lengauer Leathers; his father in New Smyrna Beach, Fla.; a half-brother, Paul of Hannibal, Mo., and a half-sister, Mrs. Edward Fritton of Niagara Falls, N.Y.
     "Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Trevor Sample Funeral Home, where friends may call from 7 to 9 p.m. today and 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday."

William's wife was Evelyn, known to us as Evie.  Evie's mother, Emma, and my father's father, Gust, were siblings who were both children of William and Tressa Rose (Froman) Doyle.

This obituary comes from an unnamed, undated newspaper.  (My mother was a great saver of newspapers clippings but not a dater of newspaper clippings.)  From other family information I know that Cub died in 1967 but I need to find the exact date.
