Death of Miss Cunningham.
[Died, at her home on north Cherry street, March 22, 1902, Miss Ada Belle Cunningham, aged twenty-one years, one month, eight days.]
A large concourse of people paid tribute of respect at the memorial service Sunday afternoon at four o'clock. Miss Ada was with us since her early childhood and was the one upon whom her widowed mother depended for assistance and council, she caring for her younger sisters with unusual solicitude. Early in life she became and remained the mainstay of the family.
Those who knew her best loved her most, and by her sterling worth commanded the admiration and respect of all who made her acquaintance both in the social and business world. In her change from this world to a better one her employers and the public lose an energetic, efficient businesswoman, her family a loving dutiful daughter, an aff ctionate and care-taking sister, while many mourn the departure of friend of whom they they were proud.
She has gone to her rest in the realms of delight
She has reaped the reward which by faith was in sight
A flower from earth transplanted above
She waits now the coming the souls of her love.
