Miles, Linnie (7 APR 1886 - 17 JAN 1914)
When the news reached here of the death of Miss Linnie Miles in the city of Great Falls, Mont., Jan. 17, 1914, after a short illness, we were again reminded of "The frailty of man." Our days are as grass and not as the sturdy oak. Not as the flinty rock, that can anchor for ages but fragile as a flower which is swept away by one breath of the wind. One touch of death and all is over.
She was born in Loyal, Clark County, Wis., April 7, 1886, graduated from the high school in 1903 and entered State Normal at Winona, Minn., in the fall of the same year, finishing the elementary course in June 1904. Later she took the advanced course and has been a successful teacher ever since.
Wherever she went she made a number of friends because of her sweet disposition. It is a very comforting thought to know that when asked by her pastor "if she felt ready to go if Jesus should call here," she assured him "it was all right and that death caused her no fear."
There are left to mourn her departure besides her parents, three sisters and one brother, Mrs. Bertha Helms of Merrill, Mrs. Florence Whitney of Superior, Mrs. Lois Jenks of Winona, Minn., and Roy Miles of Winona.
Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Thomas Harris at the home on Thursday the 22nd. Interment was made in the Loyal Cemetery.
