Mrs. James Nading
Funeral services were held Friday January 6 for Mrs. James Nading of Fayette. Minnie Belle Easton was born near Strawberry Point, Iowa, July 1, 1865 and grew to womanhood and lived most of her life time near there.

She became the wife of James Madison Nading and twelve children were born to this union, ten of whom survive the mother.

For a number of years they lived on a farm near Littleport. Then several years were spent on farms near Strawberry Point and Thorpe following their moving to Strawberry Point in 1910.

Mr. Nading passed away December 9, 1919 and after two more years on the farm with her sons, Mrs. Nading moved to Strawberry Point and a few years later came to Fayette. Here most of the remainder of her life has been spent.

A few months ago she desired a home of her own again and with her son Jesse and her grandson James Hart moved to the home on south King street. Suddenly on New Years day, while working about her dinner preparations, she was sunndenly taken ill and no help could prevent her passing. Mrs. Nading had not enjoyed the best of health for the last few years, but had seemed to feel better the past few weeks.
