Cherry Preserves Recipe Card Front

Newspaper clipping with the Cherry Preserves recipe.
There is not a notation of the publication nor the published date.
Based on the information I found on Ancestry.com it is assumed that the recipe was published between 1923 – 1965 (the time when she became Mrs. Dague between when she passed away).
There is a notation at the end that the recipe is from Mrs. Clara E. Dague of Decatur, Indiana. Using Ancestry.com I was able to find the following out about Mrs. Dague.
- Her full name is Clara Edith SPUHLER Dague
- She was born in 1888 in Missouri to Frederick SPUHLER and Carline L. GEPHART
- She died in 1965 in Indiana, where she is buried
- She married Thomas Jefferson DAGUE after 1923, when his first wife passed away
