Death of Mrs. Williams.
Passed Away at Her Home in Greenview on Sunday, June 3 [1906], After a Lingering Illness.

Iona Killion was born in Menard county, Feb. 18, 1880, and here she grew to womanhood. She was married on Christmas day, 1904, to Edwin S. Williams, and they at once took up their residence at Greenview, where they have lived happily together until last Sunday, when the home was broken by the ruthless hand of death.

She confessed her faith in the Savior on Dec. 24, 1893, and united with the Christian church at Greenview, to which she was faithful to the end. Her life was singularly sweet and helpful. She leaves a loving and faithful husband, mother and brother and a multitude of friends to mourn her early departure.

The funeral services were held at Greenview, Tuesday, conducted by Elder W. M. Groves of this city. Interment in Rose Hill Cemetery.
