Mrs. Luella Moulton Nicholl [Nicoll]

Luella Moulton was born at Maquoketa, Iowa, December 14, 1871. Her childhood days were spent in the usual way, attending public school and assisting her parents with the home work. On the fifth day of July, 1897, she was united in marriage to Mr. B. F. Nicoll. They made their home in Algona, Iowa, for six years, then moved to Windom, Minn., where they resided for some three years. Moving their family to a farm near Gruver, Iowa, they made their home there for five years, when they were obliged to leave the farm on account of Mr. Nicollís failing health. They moved to Estherville, where they might have the educational advantages for their three daughters, Bernice, Margaret and Una, and also have the best of medical care for Mr. Nicoll. Mr. Nicollís health continued to fail until January 31, 1915, when he passed away. Mrs. Nicoll was untiring in her care and devotion to her invalid husband and broke down her own health in taking care of him, thus bringing on the disease that eventually caused her death.

Besides her three daughters, Bernice, Margaret, and Una, she leaves to mourn her departure her mother, Mrs. M. J. Moulton, who has lived with her for some time, assisting in tenderly caring for her daughter; two brothers, Dr. M. W. Moulton, of Bellview, Iowa, and J. R. Moulton of Bagley, Minn., and one sister, Mrs. I. Coleman, of Estherville, besides many other relatives and a host of friends.

During the last months she was a constant sufferer and was fully conscious that she could not recover. She calmly faced the eternal world and said she was ready to go. She [unreadable line] was a faithful mother, daughter, sister and friend, and will be greatly missed by us all. She has gone to that land where suffering is unknown.

The funeral services were held at 2:00 oíclock, Tuesday afternoon, at the home. Rev. J. Frederic Catlin, pastor of the Union Baptist Church, having charge of the services. The body was laid to rest beside her departed husbandís body in Oak Hill cemetery.

Those attending the funeral from out of town were Dr. M. W. Moulton, of Bellview, Iowa, Mrs. W. W. Nicoll, of Hastings, Minn., a sister-in-law, Mrs. Robert Cook of Hastings, Minn., a sister of Mr. Nicollís, Mrs. L. E. Linder of Plaza, N.D., a niece.
