Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 27 Apr. 1916.

Adeline Cornelia Ulrich was born at Froelich, Iowa, on October 30th, 1890, and passed away April 12th, 1916.

From childhood she had a loving and cheerful disposition and won the admiration and affection of all who came in touch with her.

At the age of 12 she completed the course in the country school, after which she attended the Monona High School from which she graduated with high honors at the age of 16 years.

She attended the State Teachers' College at Cedar Falls for a time, after which she taught in the public schools of this county for a number of years with success.

From a child she was much interested in the art of home-making and naturally it became her ambition to specialize in Home Economics.

After receiving her degree from Drake University (because of the excellent character of her work), she was recommended and elected to a position as teacher of Home Economics on the faculty of the high school at Carroll, Iowa, where she remained two years.

Although this was an excellent position, it was her desire to advance, and, thinking the west had possibilities, she accepted a position as head of the department of Home Economics in the high school at Bisbee, Arizona.

She especially loved her work because of the congenial association with the faculty and school board and the hospitality of the patrons, pupils and the many friends which she readily made.

She believed in the salvation of Christ and the Divine Principle, which she manifested when she first became ill and during her illness she often declared the Omnipotence of God.

In her daily life she was ambitious, industrious and conscientious, which won for her many friends wherever duty found her. This was demonstrated during her illness by the many loving deeds and wishes of dear friends, pupils and associate teachers.

She was preceded in death by her mother five years ago. Those remaining to deeply regret and mourn her loss are her father, Wm. Ulrich, of Monona; her sister, Mrs. John Allert, of McGregor; her brother, A. F. Ulrich, of Dubuque; her aged grandmother, Martha Schneider, and many relatives and loving friends.

Rev. Bird officiated at the funeral services on Sunday, April 16th.

The remains were laid to rest beside those of her mother in the Monona cemetery.
