Mrs. Juson Adams Dies At Rural Home
Highly Esteemed County Resident Succumbs This
Saturday A.M.; Services Monday
Mrs. Judson I. Adams, a lifelong and outstanding resident in the life of Jasper County, passed away at her Barkley township home at eight thirty o'clock this Saturday morning after a year of failing health induced by diabetes, which kept her bedfast the final six weeks of her life. She had been in a critical condition for two or three weeks and it became apparent a few days ago that her death was drawing near.
Some weeks ago Mrs. Adams' decline became pronounced and she was removed to Jasper county hospital. For a time she showed improvement and her condition became so good that she was removed to her home. However, a relapse came about a week ago and from that time on she declined steadily.
Mrs. Adams was a woman of an unusually beautiful character and during her many years as a resident of Rensselaer community, she endeared herself to all. Her death came as a deep shock to all and in her passing the community is bereft of one of its most noble women.
Eva Waymire was born in Jordan township on November 21, 1868, a daughter of John and Mary Jane Mullen Waymire. She grew to adult life in the community of her birth and was educated in the schools of Jordan township.
On March 13, 1892, she was united in marriage with Judson I. Adams, the marriage ceremony being performed in Rensselaer with the pastor of the Presbyterian church officiating. The young couple settled on a farm immediately afte their marriage and it was in the farm atmosphere that her entire lifetime was spent.
Although having no children of her own, Mrs. Adams' generous spirit and her interst in young people was reflected by the assistance she gave several young people who were deprived of their own homes by taking them into her own home and rearing them and giving them the advantages enjoyed by more fortunate boys and girls. Several young people were thus befitted by her generousity and motherly kindness.
Surviving besides the husband is one brother, Daniel Waymire of this city. She was preceded in death by one brother, Fred Wayire, of Rensselaer and a sister, Mrs. Anna Michaels. Her parents died many years ago.
The funeral services will be conducted from the Methodist church here at two o'clock Monday afternoon. Interment will be made in Egypt cemtery in Jordan township where her parents are buried.
