The entire community was thrown into untold grief early Monday evening of this week with sudden passing of Mrs. Della E. Hoag, prominent Princeville matron and wife of Postmaster W.M. Hoag, who succumbed at 5:40 o'clock that evening at Seven Oaks sanitarium in Princeville following a cerebral hemorrhage, which she suffered Sunday afternoon at her home while preparing to go for an automobile ride with her husband. Despite all that medical aid and loving aid could do, Mrs. Hoag never completely rallied from the attach and gradually grew weaker until the end came very peacefully a short time following her removal in the sanitarium from her home.
Mrs. Hoag had apparently been in her usual health prior to the attack and had attended church services on Sunday morning and prepared the family noon-day meal and although he health has been impaired greatly for a number of years her untimely and sudden passing come as a distinct shock to her family and many friends.
Della Electa Adams, daughter of Ezra and Martha (Little) Adams, was born September 23, 1879, on the Adams home place northwest of Princeville, Illinois and died at Seven Oaks sanitarium in Princeville on Monday November 13, 1933, aged 64 years, 1 month and 15 days.
She was the youngest of six children.
Her parents and one sister, Jennie and two brothers, Augustus and Newton preceded her in death.
On March 5, 1901, she was married to Willis M. Hoag at Princeville, Illinois and in this union tow sons and one daughter were born.
She is survived by her three children and two grandchildren and one daughter-in-law as follows: Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Bickford and son Jack of Elmwood, Illinois, Dr. and Mrs. E. E. Hoag and son William of Peoria Illinois and Dr. O. S. Hoag of Princeville. She is also survived by one sister Mrs. Rowena Sloan and one brother, Marion Adams, both of Princeville. These together with her bereaved husband and a very large number of more distant relatives and a host of friends remain to mourn her departure.

Mrs. Hoag is a member of the Order of Eastern Star, Union Grove Chapter No.229, and also a member of Golden Rod Camp No. 5742 of the Royal Neighbors in Princeville and a member of the White Shrine of Jerusalem No. 217 in Peoria.
She united with the Princeville Methodist Episcopal church on August 2, 1890, under the pastorate of Rev. Alexander Smith. She remained a very loyal and faithful member of this church, was a member of its official board and of Circle No. 1 of the Ladies' Aid Society. She attendee Divine Worship on Sunday morning previous to the day of her departure to join the "church triumphant, which is without fault before the throne of God."
Mrs. Hoag was a lady who was greatly loved by all her associates. She was possessed of a very happy and genial spirit. She took an interest in all the affairs of the community and was very devoted to her home and family.
Last rites for Mrs. Hoag were held this Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Princeville Methodist church in charge of Rev. J. C. Craine, the pastor. The large concourse of relatives and friends which attended the services paid a glowing tribute to the esteem in which she was held in the community. Interment was in the Princeville cemetery
