The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1932

OBITUARY - MRS. ADA LAHS.

Ada MILLER, twin daughter of John and Emma MILLER, was born near Redding, Iowa, January 2, 1883, and departed this life at the Methodist hospital in Des Moines February 18, 1932, at the age of 46 years, one month and 16 days.

She was united in marriage to Henry C. LAHS March 26, 1902. To this union one son was born. Shortly after her marriage she united with the Methodist church of Redding and has always lived a devoted christian life, helping whenever she could.

During the five years, from 1911 to 1916, she with her son Percy was never absent from Sunday school, driving one an one-half miles through all kinds of weather. In the autumn of 1916, ill health caused her to give up her Sunday school work. Though she was confined to her bed for several months, suffering continually, no one ever heard her complain, but on going to her bedside we were always greeted with a smile and a kind word. She was an example of patience and humility, and God used her in a wonderful way in the community.

Through all the years she has been a constant sufferer, buther first thought has always been to serve God, by serving others. And we hear the Master say, "She hath done what she could."

She will be sadly missed by her husband and son, by her aged parents, brothers, sisters, and yes, by all who knew her. But it is one more link in the chain binding us to God and drawing us to heaven.

Besides her husband, Henry C. LAHS of Cainsville, Mo., the son, Dr. Percy LAHS of Princeton, Mo., and one little granddaughter, she leaves to mourn her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. MILLER of Reading, Iowa; four brothers, Roy A. of Livingston [illegible], J. A., J. R., and T. J. of Redding; two sisters, Mrs. E. C. [illegible] of Mount Ayr and Mrs. O. B. GRIFFITH of Redding. Also a host of relatives and friends.

She was a devoted wife, a loving mother and a friend to all who knew her. The bereaved one have the prayers and the sympathy, not only of the friends of Redding, but also those of Cainsville and Princeton, Mo. For to know her was to love her.

Funeral services were conducted Sunday, February 21, at 11 a. m. from the Methodist church in Redding by the pastor, Rev. W. H. WARRIOR, assisted by Mrs. Rose HILLHOUSE, and interment was made in the Redding cemetery.

NOTE: Henry C. LAHS, husband of Ada (MILLER), was born in 1880, and died in 1945 with interment at Redding Cemetery, Redding, Ringgold County, Iowa.
