Mrs. Monte Miller Passed Away Last Mon. Morning
After a lingering illness, death came last Monday morning to relieve the sufferings of Mrs. Monte Miller of this city. She became afflicted some two years ago. Of late she has been in Arizona endeavoring to regain her health. She improved but little and she was brought home a short time ago.

Apparently the last two weeks she was somewhat improved but on Monday morning death came rather suddenly.

Mrs. Miller was a frail woman but with a nerve of iron and to the last she insisted she would get well. She has been a most patient sufferer and has born up well under the strain of her illness.

Mrs. Miller has been a resident of this city for years. She was born on February 9, 1882 at Indianola. She was educated there and later in life was educated as a nurse and came to Estherville in 1901 and practiced her profession. In June 1903 she was united in marriage to Monte G. Miller and to this union there were four sons born all living.

The funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at two thirty at the Presbyterian church, the Rev. Voorhies officiating. The remains will be laid to rest in Oak Hill cemetery. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, July 8, 1925)

Mrs. M. Miller Passes After Long Illness
Funeral Services Thursday From Presbyterian Church Lived Here 23 Years
The community was shocked and grieved to learn of the sudden death on Monday morning of Mrs. Mabel Crevling Miller, for although Mrs. Miller had been very ill of tuberculosis for the past years yet it was not realized even by her family of the seriousness of her condition. Her sister, Mrs. Carl MacLaren arrived Sunday evening not knowing of her condition and intending to remain for the summer and to take her home with her to Davidson, Oklahoma for the winter. Mrs. Miller had been at Davidson with her sister for the past winter and was greatly benefitted by the climate.

The deceased lady came to Estherville about twenty-three years ago as a nurse and was married here on June 3, 1903 to Monte G. Miller. With her husband and family she has resided here continuously since then. There are four sons left with the father to mourn the passing of the beloved wife and mother. They are Francis, aged nineteen, Paul sixteen, Richard, thirteen, and John, Ten. Her aged father now eighty-three years old of Davidson, Okla., a brother, Wm. Crevling of Longdale, Okla. and the sister, Mrs. MacLaren, also survive.

Mrs. Miller was born at Anita, Iowa on February 9, 1882, her parents being George and Lena Crevling. Her education was obtained at Anita and Simpson College, Indianola.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday afternoon at 2:30 from the Presbyterian church with Rev. G. Voorhies in charge. The father and brother will be here from Oklahoma to attend the services. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, July 8, 1925)
