OBITUARY - MRS. ADELINE MILLER
Mary Adeline BEESON was born in Fulton county, Indiana, January 2, 1855, and departed this life at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. J. A. SAVILLE, July 6, 1928, aged 73 years, six months and four days.
When but a child of four years she came with her parents to Taylor county, Iowa, and has lived close to the town of
Blockton ever since.
On October 9, 1878, she was united in marriage to James H. MILLER and to this union two children were born, Jessie Pearl
and Bessie May.
Mrs. MILLER is survived by her daughter, Mrs. SAVILLE; two brothers, W. P. BEESON, of Yuma, Colo., and Joseph A. BEESON,
of Riverside, Calif., and one sister, Mrs. Sarah DRYDEN, of Rincon, New Mexico.
She was preceded in death by her father, John H. BEESON, March 1, 1903; her mother, Mrs. Eliza Ann BEESON, July 18, 1907;
her husband, James H. MILLER, May 16, 1924; her daughter, Bessie May, who died in infancy; her brother, Francis M. BEESON,
July 31, 1921, and her sister, Mrs. Ora A. SEVERNS, May 9, 1902.
Mrs. MILLER was converted during a revival meeting held by Rev. BUCKNER in the year 1886, and became a member of the
Baptist church. In the year 1892 during a meeting held by the Church of Christ at Tent Chapel, she placed her membership
there and after the Christian church was built and dedicated in Blockton she united with that church and has remained one
of its most loyal and devoted members until the time of her death.
Mrs. MILLER has slipped away from this earthly life with all its cares and joys to rest in peace and glory with the Savior
she learned to love so dearly. She was known and loved by everyone and the memories of "Aunt Mary", as she was lovingly
known, will be sweet memories, indeed, to her loved ones. She was loving, kind and thoughtful to everyone, always putting
herself and her cares lastly of all. Above every other tribute that could be paid her stands this tribute: She was a true
and ardent follower of the lowly Nazarene.
The church of which she was a member sorrows deeply at her passing, and desires to extent its deepest sympathy to her
Funeral services were held at the Blockton Christian church Sunday afternoon, conducted by her pastor, Rev. C. Max BUCK,
assisted by Rev. J. H. BENNETT. Interment was made in Rose Hill cemetery.
