Obituary of Mrs. Frank Richardson
Willie Elma Stillwell was born in South Pittsburg, Marion County, Tennessee, Oct. 7, 1880, and died April 23, 1911. She came to Iowa eleven years ago last March. Was married to Frank W. Richardson, Dec. 8, 1900. To this union seven children were born, live boys and two girls. One boy preceded the mother to the spirit world by two and a half years. She leaves an aged mother who has made her home with the fond daughter.
She was a loving devoted wife, and mother in the true sense of the term. She lived the life of a true Christian in her last moments she called her husband to her bedside and said, "II is better that. I should go and you stay with the children for God has called me. " She heard the sweet strains of heavenly music singing "Nearer My God to Thee. " She left true evidence of a never-failing faith in Jesus Christ as the Savior of men.
She leaves to mourn their loss an aged mother, a fond husband, and six little children all too young to realize the great loss they have sustained She expressed her wishes regarding the future care of the children. She bade them goodbye and made requests that they meet her in heaven.
The funeral took place at the home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Joseph Steele pastor of the Kingsley Congregational church in charge. The place of interment was the Moville cemetery.
