Emma is the daughter of William and Dorcas A. Fuqua Adair,
Burial; 4 June, 1925, Single.
Clinton MO - Miss Emma Adair died in St. Louis at 3 a.m. Wednesday in the Barnes hospital. She had gone to the city about two weeks before Wednesday of last week when she had a fibroid tumor removed, and got along nicely until pneumonia developed, which caused her death. Her sister, Mrs. S. T. Neill, was summoned and went the day before she died arriving in the city just a few hours previous to her death. Miss Emma was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Adair, and had lived all her life at the beautiful homestead north of Clinton 11 miles, in the Shawnee Mound neighborhood. There she comforted and cared for her dear parents all through their declining years, and mothered her nephew, Lock Bowman. She had been his home maker since the death of his wife. Hers was indeed a beautiful and unselfish life, always thinking and living for others. She always had a word of cheer and kindly greeting for her friends and remembered to tell them the happy things she knew and do the little kindnesses that makes life possible. She was educated at the old Baird College of Clinton, and was a true gentlewoman - one who knew the arts of the home as well as being talented in other things. She leaves one brother, H. Clay Adair, of St. Louis, and two sisters - Mrs. Hale Montgomery and Mrs. S. T. Neill of Clinton. Miss Emma was converted many years ago and was a member of the Baptist church in Clinton, and in her every day living she practiced her Christianity. The body was brought to Post Oak on the Rock Island Thursday morning and taken to her home where the funeral was held Thursday afternoon. Interment in Englewood.
