|Death: ||Apr. 27, 1925|
After a lingering illness of several months, Mrs. Bertha K. Adams, wife of Phil H. Adams, prominent Fairview farmer and former state representative, died early Monday afternoon at her country home. Her husband and son were at her bedside when the end came.
Mrs. Adams, who was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. V. Stephens before her marriage, became the wife of P. H. Adams in 1899.
Born in Wilton, Iowa, in 1880, she came west with her parents when nine years of age. Later she returned to her former home to complete her high school education before settling definitely in Ellensburg. Mrs. Adams was a graduate of the Normal school soon after it was built and had always had a keen interest in its progress.
Mrs. Adams death while a shock to her relatives and friends was not entirely unexpected. She was taken to her bed several months ago and had rapidly failed in health. She had many sincere friends in both the country and the city and in the early days she acted as a mother to many a cowboy who passed the ranch in returning from weeks spent in the mountains.
Mrs. Adams is survived by her husband and one son, Frederick Adams, and but one other immediate relative, an aunt, Mrs. William Newland of Yakima.
Funeral services were held from the family residence of the country Wednesday afternoon with the Rev. E. Leslie rolls in charge of the service.
