The community was exceedingly shocked last Tuesday morning when it was announced that Mrs. Scott Miller had passed away at the Anderson hospital that morning after undergoing an operation. Mrs. Miller had been ill no great length of time and it was not thought she was in a serious condition. The funeral services are to be held at the M.E. Church Thursday afternoon at 2:30 the Rev. F. F. Case officiating. Mrs. Scott Miller who was Miss Mary Lucy Jones before her marriage was born in Sheboygan County, Wis., on Sept. 2nd, 1884. She was married at the age of seventeen to Scott E. Miller and moved to Dickinson County, Iowa. At this time her parents also moved to that county. For the past sixteen years Mr. and Mrs. Miller have become residents of Estherville. Mrs. Miller is survived by a husband mother Mrs. E. Jones, two brothers, Harry A. Jones, Ray E. Jones and two sisters, Miss Alice Jones all of Estherville and Mrs. Florence Lynn of Kandiyohi, Minn. and a host of friends who were only numbered by her acquaintances. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, May 23, 1917)

Mary Lucy Jones was born in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin. At the time of her death she was 32 years, 8 months and 22 days of age. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Austin Jones. In 1901 she was married to Scott Miller in her Wisconsin home. Later they moved to Estherville, Iowa, which has since been her home. Her last illness was of five or six week’s duration and started with what was thought to be a severe attack of grippe. Medical aid was summoned and it was found that the disease had settled in her lungs which had been weakened by a previous illness. She was given every care but the disease had secured a hold which was not to be shaken off.

Besides her husband she leaves her mother, Mrs. E. Jones; two brothers, Roy and Harry, of this city, and two sisters, Mrs. Florence Lind, of Minneapolis and Miss Alice, of this city.

Mrs. Miller was known and respected by almost everyone in the city, and her loss is a personal loss to all. We cannot put into words the sympathy felt at such times as this and while the clouds seem dark let us remember that just over the hill the sun is shining. And that Mary is far happier in her Heavenly home than she ever was here.

Those attending the funeral from away were: Mrs. Florence Lind of Kandiyohi, Minnesota; Mrs. Elsie Pierce and daughter, Pipestone; Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Scott and children of Ballaton, Mr. J. F. Brown, Sioux Rapids, Iowa; Mrs. J. C. Peck, Waldo, Wisconsin; Mrs. Carrie Underhill, Little Rock, Iowa.

Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon from the Methodist church and burial was made in Oak Hill cemetery. The family have the sympathy of the entire community. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, May 30, 1917)
