Just After We Were Married

Iva Mae Earley, 16, married Nathan Robert McDonald, a 22 year old farmer. They settled in Childress, Texas. In 1931 they welcomed a daughter, Maxine, who died of pneumonia at just 1 month old.

Nathan gave up farming and went back to school, graduating from Shield of Faith Bible Institute in Fort Worth, Texas in 1935. He and Iva stayed on at the institute, Nathan as Dean of Boys and Iva as a dietician.

When Nathan passed in 1972 his obituary said that he worked at various churches over the years, the latest being Hillsboro Assembly of God where he served as pastor. Iva joined Nathan in the great beyond in 1994 and the two are buried in Fort Worth.
