Together with her devoted husband they withstood for many years the discouragements of home-making on the prairies of Nebraska and helped to make the desert blossom like the rose. Her distinguishing traits of character were frugality and industry, always ready to sacrifice for the comfort and happiness of others.

Besides her immediate family, Mrs. Adrian leaves many relatives and friends to mourn her death.

Goodbye dear mother rest in peac
Your labors now are o'er
Beyond the clouds, beyond the stars.
You've reached the golden shore.
