Adda C. Lightcap-Hiley, wife of E. M. Hilkey, died Saabbath morning, March 25, at 7 o'clock. For many months she has been greatly afficted and death to her was a sweet release. She was born at Williams Center, Ohio, September 26, 1866. From childhood she lived with her grandmother, Mrs. King, until her marriage to Morton Hilkey, June 5, 1889.
Her wedded life was pleasant and delightful; her home was her chief concern. A most dutiful helpmate, a careful, and loving mother--in prosperity she was glad, in bereavement confident and hopeful, sharing the lot of life equally with her husband. Two of the five children have passed with her with the fields Elysian. Her Sunday school teacher says "Adda was always a good girl." She was converted and joined the Methodist church in her girlhood, and has lived a careful and exemplary Christian life, and died in the confident hope of everlasting life. She was always interest in the work of the church, and attended as long as her bodily afflictions would admit; sometimes she came when she was compelled to lean upon the strength of her husband to enable her to join in the services in the house of the Lord with her brothers and sisters.
