Funeral Services for Mrs. Almena
Fetters, 80, who died Saturday at the
home of her daughter, Mrs. Frank
Washburn, at Cosby, after a brief ser-
ious illness, were held at 1 oclock
Tuesday afternoon at the Taggart
Funeral home here, conducted by the
Rev. W. C. Whitehouse, pastor of the
Christian Church, and burial was in
The King City cemetery. Mrs. Fet-
ters had been a resident of the King
City community since 1881.
Almena R. Miller was born Nov.
7, 1849 near Ligionier, Ind., where
she grew to young womanhood. In
1867 she was married to Enoch Fet-
ters, and in 1870 they migrated to Mis-
souri, locating what is now the
M.L. Copeland farm, one-half mile
north of King City. They lived there
only a little more than a year, how-
ever, and returned to Indiana where
they remained ten years, returning to
King City in 1881 to settle on a farm
one-half mile west of town which has
since been known as the Fetters place
and has continued to be her home.
Mr. and Mrs. Fetters were the par-
ents of three daughters, all of whom
survive, as follows:
Mrs. G.C. Boatman, King City;
Mrs. F.B. Washburn, Cosby and
Mrs. Charles King, Albany.
Mrs. Fetters also is survived by six
grandchildren, two great-grandchil-
dren, two half-brothers, several other
distant relatives and many friends.
Mr. Fetters' death occurred Jan. 26,
Mrs. Fetters had been a member of
the Christian church thirty-five or
forty years. She was a great lover
of home, and though the homes of her
daughters, where she spent several
months each year, always were open
to her, she liked to maintain a home
of her own on the farm where she
had lived so long. She was of the
hardy pioneer stock, and through the
advancing years enjoyed keeping
abreast of the times. Her two half-
brothers are C.S. Miller of Elkhart,
Ind., and Orland Miller of Dowagiac,
