Amanuensis Monday: Transcribed Obituary of ELIZABETH T MILLER Chillicothe, Livingston Co MO

Here is the obituary of my great great grandmother, ELIZABETH T MILLER nee MOSELEY, born about 1819 in Buckingham Co VA, daughter of WILLIAM FRANCIS MOSELEY and MARY "POLLY' SAUNDERS. I transcribed the obituary from the Chillicothe MO Constitution newspaper, dated Jan 29, 1900

Elizabeth T. Miller, relict of the late William F. Miller, and one of the pioneer residents of Chillicothe died at the home of her son, Henry, on S. Washington St Saturday morning at 5:10 o'clock, of old age and general debility.

Mrs. Miller was 81 years old and came with her husband and family to this city in 1874. Her life has been a busy useful one and devoted to alleviating the suffering of those less fortunate than herself. She was a kind, noble, Christian woman and before old age and ill health confined her to her home she was an active charity worker and many people in Chillicothe hold her in loving remembrance for a helping hand that was extended in time of need.

Mrs. Miller had been in failing health for some time and two months ago was taken to her bed. After lingering a few short weeks she was called to that reward awaiting her in heaven.
She leaves three children--Henry Miller, Chillicothe; Lethitia (Letitia) Leeper, Pottsboro Texas, and Alice Martine, Seattle Washington.

Funeral services from the late home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by the Rev. McVoy, of the Elm Street M. E. church.

Have a great day!
