Death of Mrs. O.S. Mills
Passed Away Monday After a Painful Illness
Many hearts were made sad Monday noon by the announcement of the death of Mrs. Sadie Mills, wife of Dr. O.S. Mills, who had been seriously ill for several weeks suffering from the effects of a malignant tumor.
Sadie Entz, only daughter of Elias and Fannie [Stevens] Entz and grand daughter of Mrs. Sarah A. Holman, was born February 22nd, 1872 and died April 22nd, 1901. Was united in marriage to Dr. O.S. [Otis S.] Mills, October 5th, 1893, and was the mother of one child, Kenneth [b. Jun 1898], a bright little boy of three years. The deceased was a member of St. John's Reformed Episcopal Church, being confirmed by Bishop Cheney, October 1st, 1891. She was also a member of the "Kings Daughters" and the "Ladies' Guild," always ready and willing to do her share of church work, a faithful christian from childhood, a womanly woman and one whose example and influence will live. She was an efficient worker in the Sunday School and Christian Endeavor Society and five years the faithful organist of the Church and Sunday School. She was always interested in the advancement morally and intellectually of the community and was a student of literature and enjoyed the sessions of the "Ladies Literary Club" of which she was a member.
The sympathy of many friends besides the church circle, is extended to the bereaved ones, her husband and child, father and two brothers whose loss is her eternal gain. She has gone to join the dear mother who preceded her only a few months-Mrs. Entz died September 1899.
The funeral services were held Wednesday at St John's Church. Her pastor Rev. Frank V.C. Cloak preached from the text, "So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." The words were a beautiful and pathetic appeal to all, to emulate the life of the departed one, touching tenderly and comfortingly on the christian character and influence of the short life closed here, that the Father of all in His infinite wisdom would in His own good time disclose the purpose. Many tears were shed when the choir sang her favorite funeral hyms, "She is not Dead, but Sleeping;" "Nearer My Home Today;" Mrs. Wm. Mead sang a beautiful, sacred solo, "Come Unto Me and I Will Give Thee Rest." The casket was completely covered with flowers-loving tribute of respect. Most conspicuous were the large flat boquets from the Ladies Guild, one from the Literary Club and one from the Christian Endeavor.
The remains were interred in the city cemetery and were followed to the grave by a large number of sorrowing friends.
The pall-bearers were Messrs. M.W. Kahn, Chas. Dougherty, A.E. Slinn, Frank L. Wilmot, John P. Matthews, and Frank W. Bailey.
The relatives present from out of town were Mrs. Holman, Miss Goldie Frazer, Mr. and Mrs. Pugh from Peoria, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Mills, from Ft. Madison, Iowa.
