Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon from the Danish Lutheran Church at Withee for Mrs. Bodel Marie Miller, 92, who died at her home in that village Monday evening. Death was due to old age.

She was the wife of Jens Miller, who preceded her in death twelve years ago. Mrs. Miller came to Withee with her husband from Iowa, and settled on a farm north west of the village in 1886. In 1918, Mr. Miller retired from farming and moved into the village where she had resided.

In her passing she leaves to mourn five sons, Fred, Andrew and Tom, of Withee, Martin of Fenton, Mich., and John of Nekoosa, and three daughters, Mrs. Chas. Anderson, (Margaret), Mrs. Emil V. Hansen, (Elizabeth), and Marie Miller, all of Withee. Three children preceded her in death, Mrs. Hans Nielsen and Mrs. Nels Holm, both of Withee, and Jess, a daughter who died in infancy.

Those from away who are here for the funeral are: Mr. and Mrs. Martin Miller and family, Thorval Nielsen, all of Fenton, Mich.

Mrs. Miller was truly one of the pioneer settlers of this community and was known by many, and who will regret to learn of her passing.
