Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
August 30, 1917

OBITUARY ~ LILLIE ESTELLE HINTON MILLER UTTER

Lillie Estelle Hinton was born April 19th, 1870, near Holden, Johnson Co., Mo. She came to Bedford Iowa, in 1878 and to Clearfield Iowa, in 1894. On Christmas Day 1895, she was married to Thomas II Miller. To them was born a daughter, Madge, who was called home at the age of seven months. Mr Miller preceded his companion December 15, 1909.

Mrs. Miller continued her residence in Clearfield, with the exception of a short time, till her death. On September 25th, 1916, she was married to Mr. Kendrick Utter, who in extreme loneliness survives her.

Mrs. Utter united with the Christian church at West Line, Cass Co., Mo., at the age of 16 and has been a most active Christian worker. Her keen interest in every good work found expression in many associated works. She was active in the work of the Woman's Relief Corps and the W. C.T. U. in the various calls of the church.

She will be greatly missed, for it was characteristic of her to remember every appointment, and those hours to her were all sacred hours. Her counsel was always sought and found most helpful, her heart and her home were always open to the young people, who will miss her contagious cheerfulness and good will. Her personal virtues were of that sturdy sort that make most lasting and true friendship. To know her for even a short time was to forge a new link in one's chain of friendship, and like all such, none knew just how deeply those relations were laid till the word came that she was gone from us.

So on August 22, 1917 she went over yonder to make her permanent residence. Her less than fifty years proved to her a most profitable preparation for eternal mansions, for she tried in the sincerest way to be one of God's saints.

Funeral services were conducted Friday afternoon at 2:30 at the Christian church, by her pastor, W. Johnson; interment in the Clearfield Cemetery.
