    • Mrs. M. Miller Taken By Death While On Visit
      Was Well Known Resident Of Le Mars For Over Thirty Years

      Mrs. Elizabeth Miller, 68, wife of Melchior Miller, for more than thirty five years a resident of Le Mars, died Tuesday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Ray Sullivan, in Sioux City. The cause of death was ascribed to heart trouble. She had been in poor health for fifteen years.

      Mr. and Mrs. Miller left Le Mars about two years ago when Mr. Miller retired from business, and have been visiting their children in Beverly, Kentucky, Washington, D. C. and other places since.

      Elizabeth Goetz, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Goetz, was born in Baltimore, Maryland, December 10, 1868, and was married to Mr. Miller at that place. They came to Le Mars in 1902 when Mr. Miller opened a machine shop and was known as an expert mechanic.

      Besides her husband, Mrs. Miller leaves one son and five daughters, Rev. Edward Miller, Beverly Kentucky; Mrs. L. C. Van Pelt, of Sioux City; Mrs. M. E. Goff, St. Paul, Minn.; Mrs. Felix Weidenfeller, Plainview Neb.; Mrs. R. J. Mischler, of Washington D. C.; Mrs. Ray Sullivan, of Sioux City, and sixteen grandchildren. She also leaves a sister, Mrs. George W. Koenig, Waterloo, Iowa, and a brother, Rev. August Goetz, Covina, Calif.

      Mr. and Mrs. Miller, while living in Le Mars, were active in the work of the Evangelical Church and its associations, and in social life gained many acquaintances and friends.

      Funeral Held Yesterday

      The funeral was held Thursday with brief services at the Sullivan home in Sioux City, by Rev. Karl Kaupp, pastor of the Melbourne church, and at 2:30 in the Hildreth Memorial church in Le Mars, the pastor, Rev. G. O. Thompson, officiating. Interment was made in the city cemetery.
