In 1882, when four years of age, she came with her parents to Pueblo.
Her early education was received in the public schools of district No. 20. Following her graduating from Central high school in 1896, Miss Moses spent two years as a student at Colorado College, in Colorado Springs. After leaving college, she taught in Fort Lupton and Pueblo schools until June 1904. On August 10, 1904, she was married to Alva B. Adams, son of Gov Alva Adams. Last summer previous to her marriage, Mrs. Adams suffered a severe attack of typhoid fever.
During the past year she has been in ill health as the result of sickness. On June 25, 1905, Mrs. Adams was taken ill. A consultation of three physicians last Sunday resulted in a decision that an operation was imperative. The patient was removed to the hospital that evening and Monday morning the operation was performed.
So weak was her condition that Mrs. Adams failed to recover from the effects of the operation, and death came at 8:15 yesterday morning.
During her life in Pueblo, the deceased was known among a large circle of friends for her cheerful and lovable disposition. Her amiable ways made her a social favorite, and her demise is mourned by a large acquaintance.
Of recent years Mrs. Adams has been active in club circles in Pueblo and at the time of her death, was president of the Fortnightly club and also a member of Wednesday Morning club.
The deceased is survived by her husband, Alva B. Adams, her mother and a sister, Mrs. Fred Briggs. The funeral will be held this afternoon in charge of McMahon & Collier.
