Mary Lucy (Rice) Mills
Mary Lucy Rice, daughter of Samuel T. and Margaret A. Rice, was born April 16, 1856, at Belleview, Mo., and died at the home of her son, at Graniteville, Mo., May 4, 1930, aged 74 years and 18 days.  She was united in marriage March 3d, 1885 to Felix R. Mills.  To this union two children were born, Moman M. and Allie E.   Her daughter, Allie E., preceded her in death, December 2d, 1906.

Mrs. Mills was stricken with paralysis, October 13, 1927 and never fully recovered.  She leaves to mourn her departure her husband, Felix Mills, and son Moman M. and one grandson, Robert Paul, of Graniteville, one sister, Eliza E. Pile, Grayson, La., and two brothers, Henry S. Rice, of Fresno, California and Samuel T. Rice, of Graniteville.  She also leaves a host of other relatives and friends to mourn her departure.

She was bedfast for five weeks and bore her suffering patiently, but we know she is resting peacefully, now.  How sweet to sleep where all is peace, Where sorrw cannot reach the breast, Where all life's idle throbbings cease, and pain is lulled to rest.

Card of Thanks
We wish to extend our sincere thanks to our friends, neighbors and relatives for their kindness in the sickness and death of our darling mother and grandmother.
Moman Mills and Family, Granitesville, Mo., May 13, 1930
