Davis, Ella J. (17 Dec. 1867 - 22 Apr. 1928)
Ella J. Davis (nee Hatch) was born at Berlin, Wis., Dec. 17, 1867, and passed away at her home in Abbotsford, Wis., Sunday evening, April 22, 1928, at the age of 60 years, 4 months and 5 days. She had been in failing health the past five years, death being caused by diabetes.
Her girlhood days were spent in Winneconne, Wis., where she was married to Allen Davis in 1882. To this union one son Earl, was born, who preceded his mother in death on April 29, 1913 at Waupaca, Wis.
For a number of years Mr. and Mrs. Davis resided in Oshkosh, then moved to Waupaca. Eleven years ago they came to Abbotsford and located on a farm in the town of Johnson where they resided eight years three years ago moving to the village where they have since resided.
Mrs. Davis was a member of the O.E.S., W.R.C., W.C.T.U. and the Home and Foreign Mission Societies of the Presbyterian church in Abbotsford, Wisconsin.
Life will never be the same to those who knew her. She was a woman of strong Christian character, patient, loving and self-sacrificing. Gone from our sight; but because life and love are stronger than death she is ours still. Her home instincts were strong, her affection for friends and kindred was tender and strong.
Those who survive her are her husband Allan Davis of Abbotsford, one sister Mrs. W. J. Walker of Brunswick, Ga., and one brother, Geo. W. Hatch of Park Falls, Wis., and numerous other relatives.
Funeral services were conducted from the Presbyterian church in Abbotsford Tuesday afternoon, April 24, 1928, at 2:30, and the body was taken to Waupaca Wednesday, and after short service and prayer at the grave was buried beside her son Earl, in the Papperville cemetery.
Out of town people attending were: Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Barker, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Peebles and Mr. Fred Peebles of Shiocton, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. (unreadable) Davis?, Mrs. (unreadable) Cole, Mrs. Alma Robinson, Mrs. Ethel Perzentka, Mr. and Mrs. J. McAuley and Tracy McAuley of Oshkosh, Wis., Mrs. Mary Parker and Geo. Parker of Red Granite, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. Allie Hill, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Hill of Embarrass, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W.
