Miller, Lulu (12 MAY 1866 - 9 DEC 1915)

News was received by friends here Thursday, Dec. 9, 1915, that Mrs. W.P. Miller had died that day at her home in Appleton. Mrs. Miller’s death will be sincerely mourned by many of the older residents here, where she was well known and loved by all who knew her.

Mrs. Miller, whose maiden name was Lulu Brown, was born in Black river Falls May 12, 1866, and came to Neillsville, Clark County with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. David A. Brown, when a small girl and grew to womanhood here. She was married to W.P. Miller Dec. 22, 1884. They lived at Unity for a time and later at Thorp for several years, and then moved to Neillsville. More than twenty years ago they moved to Appleton, which was their home until her death. Mrs. Miller was a woman of most lovable character, bright, cheerful and helpful in all good things, she seemed the life of anything in which she took part. It was the writer’s good fortune to know her when she lived at Thorp, and there yet remains many in that village who will remember with pleasure the old days of their friendship there and who will be saddened by her death. She was a member of the Congregational Church and active in its work, but wherever she lived, she sought to help in those things that made for a better social life.

She leaves her husband, one daughter, Mrs. Fred Ruseling of Eleva, her mother, Mrs. Anna Brown, two sisters, Mrs. C.H. Elkington of Eleva and Miss Grace Brown of Albany, Ore., besides a host of friends.

The funeral was held Saturday at Appleton, all of the relatives named being present, except the sister in Oregon. Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Marsh of Neillsville were also present.
