MRS. JOY ADAMS DEAD.
Wife of Former Marshalltown Boy Dies at St. Anthony.
Word received by relatives in this city Friday afternoon told the death of Mrs. Joy Adams, wife of a former Marshalltown boy, and son of J.O. Adams, now of Minneapolis. Mrs. Adams' death was due to pulmonary tuberculosis and followed an illness of about eighteen months.
Mrs. Adams was formerly Miss Ruth McCormack, of Clemons, and was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G.W. McCormack, now of St. Anthony. She was 28 years old, and was born and reared on her father's farm, one and one-half miles north of Clemons. There about eight years ago, she became the wife of Mr. Adams, and continued to make her home on the farm a few years after her marriage. Since then Mr. and Mrs. Adams have lived at Minneapolis and about a year ago went to LaJunta, Colo., owing to Mrs. Adams' health. Because the climate did not prove beneficial, Mr. Adams brought his wife to her parents' home last summer.
In addition to her husband and parents, Mrs. Adams is survived by one brother, George McCormack, who lives on the old McCormack home place. A daughter died in infancy about four years ago. Mrs. Adams was her parent's only daughter. Two brothers, Russell and Homer, died within two months of one another about four years ago. Three other brothers died in infancy.
The funeral will be held from the Christian church at St. Anthony Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment will be in the Clemons cemetery.
