The husband and father died on July 8, 1902.

On November 14th, 1906, Mrs. Clemmons was married to D. H. Bruner, and shortly after this the family moved to Beloit. To this union one son, Lawrence, was born. Aside from her children and five grand children, Mrs. Bruner leaves a mother, four sisters and four brothers to mourn her loss.
