She came to Kansas with her parents when just a small child and grew to womanhood here.

Her husband died several years ago.
She has been a member of the Methodist Church since early youth.
The McAdams lived in Mildred many years and they have many friends there who regret her death and who sympathize with the grief-stricken family.
She leaves to mourn her, her children all whom have been at her bedside for several days. Fourteen grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Alice Miller of Garnett, and many other relatives and friends.
The funeral services were conducted at the Methodist Church in Mildred Sunday afternoon by Rev. Hutchins. The music was furnished by a quartet consisting of Floyd McCormack, Pauline Miller, Mrs. Orville Frame, and Earl Ludlum with Mrs. Frank Curley at the piano. The pallbearers were Frank Dozier, Ernest Baker, Ira Norton, Paul Rich, Ora Dunlap and Roy Dennis. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. She was laid to rest in the Fairview cemetery. May He who said, "In My Father's House are Many Mansions" bless and comfort the family and cause them to realize there will be a glad reunion over there.
