Just a Death Notice for Adah

Death notice for Adah Evans Stewart, 1934, probably The Providence (RI) Journal

Death Notice for Adah Evans Stewart

Glued in my Family Bible, under her husband's obituary, is this small death notice for my maternal great grandmother, Adah.  My interview with my grandmother for a college assignment states that Adah was very quiet, loved to read and was happy as a housewife.

STEWART: In this city, on June 4, Adah (Evans), wife of Charles  E. Stewart, in her 69th year. Funeral services to which relatives and friends are invited will be held at her late home, 135 Lexington Ave. Friday. Time to be announced. Burial at Mystic, Connecticut.

The Stewart home. Last place they lived.
There is no known photo of Adah. Her mother died at 20 and her father remarried and raised Adah. Evans is probably a surname from Wales. Adah was born in Adams, Massachusetts.
