Funeral Services Are Held Saturday For Mrs. Ada Camp

Funeral services for Mrs. Ada Camp of Monica, 78, were held in the Monica Methodist church Saturday afternoon with Rev. William Caulkins officiating. Rev. and Mrs. Caulkins were the singers. Mrs. Camp was laid to rest in the Princeville cemetery. Pallbearers were Ralph Gelling, George Griffen, Edmond Lauber, Milton Smith Jr., Merle Burgess, and Donald Duggins.
She was born November 2,1877 in Yorkshire, England, a daughter of Charles and Maryann Stevens Berry and passed away in her home in Monica Thursday morning following a long illness at the ages of 78 years, 6months and 8 days.
She was one of a family of 12 children. She came to the United States when she was three years of age. She joined the Monica Methodist church when she was 10 years old, being an active member ever since.
She was united in marriage to Perry Camp April 1, 1894 in Monica. To this union were born 10 children; four boys and six girls. Her husband and two daughters preceded her in death.
Mrs. Camp, an outstanding resident of the Monica community, was always busy doing not only for her family but for her friends and neighbors too. She took part in all activities in the community until ill health overcame here. Her needlecraft, gardening and cooking took many prices and ribbons at the fairs in Peoria county and the Illinois State Fair. She will be sadly missed not only by her family but also by all who knew her.

Surviving are four daughters, Mrs. Della Allen of Congerville, and Mrs. Mary DeBord, Mrs. Effie Schelkopf and Mrs. Francis Hoag, all of Monica; four sons, Charles, Raymond, and William, all of Monica, and James of Princeville' one sister, Mrs. Margaret Barnes of Council Bluffs, Ia.; one brother, Joseph Berry of Galesburg; 15 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren, and a host of other relatives and friends.
