Miller, Mary M. (28 DEC 1854 - 21 AUG 1917)

Mary Malinda Hopkins was born Dec. 28, 1854, in Defiance Co., Ohio, and died Aug. 21, 1917.

On Oct. 9, 1879, she was married to J. E. Miller and to this union was born one daughter, L. Myrtle Healy. In the fall of 1882 this happy family came to Colby, Wis. and lived her until June 1903, and during that time they were among the foremost to contribute to the upbuilding and development of our community, and added greatly to its sociability. Mrs. Miller was one of the earnest workers of the M. E. Church and the congregations felt her loss keenly when the family moved back to Ohio. After living in Ohio for two years they moved to Chicago and for the past eight years have lived in the home where she died.

She leaves to mourn her a sorrowing husband and only daughter, one granddaughter, one sister and three brothers.

Funeral services were held in Chicago and the remains taken to Hicksville, Ohio, for burial.
