Davis, Ada (1876? - 4 APR 1918)

Ada, wife of W. Scott Davis of Granton, Clark County, Wis., died quite suddenly at her home April 4, 1918.

Ada F. Kimball, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Kimball, was born on a farm west of this city forty-one years ago. Later her father moved to Neillsville and for many years was assistant post master. Here Ada grew to womanhood, attended school and for a short time taught country school. On March 25, 1896 she was married to W. Scott Davis and lived for a time in Neillsville. Later they went to Granton to make their home.

Besides her husband she leaves two children, Lawrence Kimball Davis and Gertrude Ruth Davis, also two sisters, Emma and Gertrude Kimball.

Mrs. Davis was a woman of beautiful character. All her life, even as a little girl, none knew her but to love her. Her death, so unexpected to many of her old friends here, cast a gloom over this community and still more so in and around Granton, where the later years of her life were spent.

The funeral was held at the home Sunday under the auspices of the Eastern Star, of which Mrs. Davis was an honored member. Rev. G.W. Longenecker also assisted in the services.
