This obituary was given to me by Royce E Hostetler

Miller.-Delila, daughter of Jonas and Rachel Kauffman, was born in Johnson Co., Ia., Aug. 9, 1861; died Nov. 12, 1935, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Joseph G. Gingerich, near Kalona, Ia.; aged 74 y. 3 m. 3 d.

In her youth she was baptized by her father, and received into the Amish Mennonite Church, in which faith she lived and died. On Dec. 22, 1878, she was married to John A. Miller. To this union were born 13 children, of whom 9 survive. Jonas and Ida died in childhood. Abram and Elizabeth (wife of Dan G. Gingerich) died after growing to manhood and womanhood.

Those remaining who suffer the loss with the bereaved husband, are 9 children, 52 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. Also 1 brother (Jonas) of Berwyn, Md., and 2 sisters (Mrs. Rebecca Mishler of Hubbard, Oreg, and Mrs. Tena Bell of Canby, Oreg.), besides a great many relatives and friends. The children are: Jacob, Savilla (wife of Joseph C. Gingerich) of Kalona, Ia.; Mattie (wife of Jacob J. Yoder) of Picayune, Miss.; Rebecca (wife of John J. S. Yoder) of Middlebury, Ind.; Daniel and Solomon of Wellman, Ia.; Annie (wife of Ben H. Detweiler) of Keota, Ia.; Frederich of Thomas, Okla.; and Chriss of Weatherford, Okla.

She was of a kind and loving disposition, and by her busy and devoted life of helpfulness she won many friends outside of her family circle, who will feel the loss of one whom they loved. Her immediate death was heart trouble.

Funeral services were held Nov. 21 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Joseph G. Gingerich (where she had her home the last few years), conducted by Isaac Helmuth and Edwin Hershberger (Text, II Tim. 4 :6-8) ; also a short sermon in English by A. C. Swartzendruber.

"Oh, how hard to part with mother,
She who loved us all so well,
And there is on earth no other
That can sympathize so well;
Mother's chair is empty now,
And the voice we loved is still;
And though our hearts are broken,
We know it is God's will." by a daughter
