He had been a resident of Franklin county 41 years, coming here from Thayer county. The wife of the deceased passed away about 19 years ago, and he is survived by three daughters and one son: Mrs. Pearl Barber of Hastings; Mrs. Mina Paulson of Bloomington; Mrs. Nona Scheuneman of Franklin, and Ray W. Miller of Oakland, California, all of whom are here for the funeral. Services will be held at the Hutchins funeral home at 2:30 this Thursday afternoon, Rev. A. W.

Miller, an account of whose death appeared in the Sentinel last week, was born December 14, 1856, at Millersburg, Mercer county, Illinois, and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nona Scheuneman, near Franklin, Nebr., August 12, 1935, aged 78 years, 6 months, and 28 days. He was united in marriage to Edith E. Terry August 19, 1885, his wife having preceded him in death May 13, 1917. To this union five children were born: Mrs. Mina Paulson of Bloomington, Nebraska; Mrs. Nona Scheuneman, Franklin; Ray W. Miller, Oakland, Calif.; Lee R. Miller, deceased; and Mrs. Pearl Barber, of Hastings, Nebr. Mr. Miller came to Nebraska in 1886, and in 1894 came to Franklin county, where he had since lived. He had a home in Bloomington, but the last few years had been staying most of the time with his daughter, Mrs. Nona Scheuneman. He leaves to mourn his passing his four children, 12 grandchildren, one great grandchild, one brother, two stepsisters, a half-brother and a host of friends. His creed of life was to live by the side of the road and be a friend to man; his generousity to the church, to his friends and to the ones needing aid, will long be remembered. Funeral services were held at the Hutchins funeral home Thursday afternoon, August 15, at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. A. W. Lapthorne officiating, in the presence of a large number of friends of the deceased and family. Interment was in Greenwood cemetery. Now the laborer's task is o'er; Now the battle day is past; Now upon the farther shore Lands the voyager at last. Father, in thy gracious keeping Leave we now thy servant sleeping. There the tears of earth are dried; There its hidden things are clear; There the work of life is tried By a juster Judge than here. Father, in thy gracious keeping Leave we now thy servant sleeping. Now we lift our tear-dimmed eyes To the smiling skies above, And we know our dear one lies In the bosom of thy love. Father, in thy gracious keeping Leave we now thy servant sleeping. Card of Thanks We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to our many friends and neighbors who were so faithful and kind to us during our recent bereavement in the loss of our father, W. A. Miller.
