THE WESTERN STAR, 23 June 1899
Obituary of ADA ELMA MONTICUE
DIED.

Monticue. - At the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. Webber, near Brock, Missouri, on June 9, 1899, Mrs. Ada E. Monticue.

Ada Elma Webber, daughter of Calvin and Marietta Webber, was born August 26, 1873. On December 19, 1894, she was married to Wilbert C. Monticue, in Coldwater, Kansas. She died at the home of her parents near Brock, Missouri, June 9, 1899, and her purified spirit entered into rest in our Father's kingdom, where she awaits the coming of husband, parents, three
brothers, three sisters, three sweet baby girls, many other relatives and a host of friends.

Being of a singularly pure and sweet nature, in which selfishness had no part, combined with a lovely personality, she attracted many admirers, won them for friends and ever held them so by her loyal nature and rare tact in adjusting wrongs and soothing griefs. June 12 was set for her to go to Kansas, where her husband and brother were and where the home was already prepared, only awaiting its life center, mother and children. The doctor advised this as the only hope to stay the fell destroyer. She was ever so cheerful and patient, none could think of her going home so soon. Our father knows best. He alone can apply the balm to heal the broken hearts, soothe the crushed spirit and blasted hopes, bidding the husband live and still strive, leading their babes in their mother's steps at last to gain her side.

The hearts of the community go out in strong sympathy to this grief stricken family and would bid them lift their hearts to God and trust His sure promises, remembering this is "not death but transition:" also "all life shall live for everyone." -- Memphis (Mo.) Reveille, June 15.
