Ada H Mills:

Mrs. Ada Heath Mills, 78, pioneer settler of Clark County and a resident of Marshfield since Nov. 1, 1926, succumbed at 1:45 a.m. Sunday to an attack of pneumonia, which followed a stroke of apoplexy suffered eight weeks ago. Death occurred at the home of her son, J.HJ. Mills, 111 West Sixth Street, where she had been cared for since the first of the year.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at 1 o'clock at the J.J. Mills home and at 1:15 o'clock at the First Methodist Episcopal Church, after which the body will be taken to Loyal, where another service will be held in the Methodist Episcopal Church. Burial will be made in the family lot in the Loyal cemetery.

Mrs. Mills was born Nov. 14, 1853, at Warsaw, Wyoming County, NY, the daughter of A.S. and Polina (Graham) Heath, who settled a year later in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin. She grew to womanhood in the latter community and afterward went to Newport, IL, where she was married Nov. 13, 1878, to the late William Mills.

The couple moved in November, 1882, to a tract of wild land one and one-half miles west of Loyal, where they built up a home and developed a farm out of the wilderness. They retired in 1909 to a home in Loyal, and Nov. 1, 1926, came to Marshfield, where Mr. Mills died Aug. 30, 1927, after having been an invalid for a number of years. Mrs. Mills made her home with her daughter, Miss Delight A. Mills, at 509 South Cedar Street until the first of this month.

Surviving, besides the son and daughter, are four grandchildren, Florence Delight, Forest Eugene, William Clark, and Ada Delores, all living with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Mills.
