Death: Jul. 28, 1939

Miss Matilda Miller of Geneseo, passed away Friday afternoon of last week in the Evangelical hospital in Chicago. Miss Miller had been in poor health for some time and had gone to the Chicago hospital only a few days prior to her passing. Matilda Miller was born January 13, 1887(sic), and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gust. I. Miller of Edford township. She was a member of St. Peter's Evangelical church of Edford and was confirmed there a number of years ago. As a young woman she was employed by Armour Company in Chicago, remaining in that city until fifteen years ago when she came to Geneseo to reside with her brother, Gust Miller and her sister, Miss Emilie Miller, west of Geneseo. Miss Miller was interested in music and was a member of several musical organizations in Chicago. She was active in various religious organizations, including the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. Because of her modest nature, the public was unaware of her generous contributions to church and charitable organizations. She is survived by five brothers, Albert, Otto, Gust, Ernest, and Geo. Miller of Genesee, two sisters, Mrs. Mary Reichle of Milwaukee, and Miss Emilie Miller, of Geneseo, and many other relatives. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock at Sweeney Mortuary and at 2:30 at St. Peter's Evangelical church, Rev. C. H. Uthlaut, officiating. Burial was in Edford cemetery. Pallbearers were Harry Miller, Rudolph Miller, Robert Miller, Ernest Meier, Albert Pobanz and Emil Pobanz.
