Ayers, Emma ( 22 Jan. 1859 - 1 March 1925)

Emma Ayers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Cook, late residents of the town of Hewett, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Frank Lynch, at Waukesha, Wis., where she went for medical treatment last October. All that loving heart and hands could do was of no avail and she passed to the great beyond March 1st, 1925. She was born at Springfield, Ohio, January 22nd, 1859 and when a small child moved with her parents to Neillsville, Wis., settling in the town of Hewett. She was married to Frank Ayers August 18th, 1880, at Neillsville, and settled at that place, which has been her home ever since, until a year and a half ago, when they moved on their farm near Merrillan, Wis. To their union two children were born. Irve, now at home, and Blanche, Mrs. Frank Lynch, who resides at Waukesha. She leaves to mourn her loss a kind and loving husband, her two children, four brothers and two sisters, namely, Alonzo Cook of Hewett, Ray, Jay and Bill Cook of Centralia, Wash.; Mrs. Joe Radek of Puyallup, Wash.; also four grandchildren, beside a host of other relatives and friends. She had a large circle of friends who will also miss her kindly greetings from time to time. She will also be missed in the home where her presence brought cheer and comfort. She was a good wife and mother, always doing for those she loved. To her associates she was kind and considerate. She lived a good life one of fine influence and accomplishments. Her husband, children and other relatives have the sympathy of all in their sorrow. The funeral services were held at the Congregational church March 7th, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating. She was laid to rest in the Neillsville Cemetery. Those from away who were here to attend the funeral were, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Clark of Merrillan; Mr. and Mrs. Dwight Metcalf of Ashland, Wis. Her daughter and husband were not able to attend the funeral on account of sickness.
