Death of Mrs. Burton Millis
Mrs. Fidella Millis, wife of Burton J. Millis died at her home, Plainville, Indiana, August 25th of typhoid fever. Mrs. Millis was the daughter of Jesse D. Baker, or Borden, Indiana and, her remains were taken to her former home Sunday and buried Monday. During her sickness she was very patent and bore her suffering without a murmur. She was a devoted member of the Christian Church and much of her time was spent in the work of the Master. Those who knew her found her always ready to greet them with a smile and her pleasant and loving disposition made for her many friends. Mrs. Millis was an educated lady, being a graduate of the Bordon College, and for a time she was teacher of the German language in to he college. On December 30, 1893 she was married to Burton J. Millis and arrived at her home on January 1, 1894. During her short stay here she made many new friends who will not soon forget her. Though she is gone from earth her spirit waits in Heaven for the coming of her loved ones whom she left behind. Dying she leaves a husband, and aged father and mother, two sisters, two brothers and many friends to mourn their loss. But their loss is Heaven's gain. Friends sympathize with her young husband in his hour of trouble.One less on earth!Its pain, its sorrow and toil to share.'One less the pilgrim's daily cross to bear One more the crown of the blessed to wear,At home in heaven
