Mills, Dr. G. Willis (20 JAN 1856 - 3 OCT 1925)

Dr. G. Willis Mills, formerly of Colby, Wis., passed away in Los Angeles, Cal., Oct. 3, 1925. He was born in Whitewater, Wis., Jan. 20, 1856. He was educated at Milton and Beloit Colleges, and later received a medical degree from Hahnneman Medical College, Chicago.

In the year 1902 he was married to Miss Laura Wolcott at Marshfield, Wis.

In February of this year, Dr. Mills suffered a paralytic stroke from which he partially recovered., but later in the year it was found that Bright's Disease, in an advanced form, left no hope for recovery.

Dr. Mills fought for his life bravely and cheerfully, but as the end approached, expressed a desire to be at rest. For six months he had gone about in a wheel chair. He passed away peacefully, with no conscious suffering. The following words were written Mrs. Mills by a friend who voiced the sentiments of a host of those who loved him:

"My heart goes out to you in deepest tenderness and sympathy in your great loss and loneliness. I miss seeing the familiar chair and its quiet, saintly occupant with the bright look of recognition, which seemed a benediction of friendliness."

Rev. Ralph Larkin, one of Dr. Mills warm friends, conducted the service. He was assisted by Rev. W. H. Young, and Rev. Mr. Hensel. The abundant beautiful floral offerings testified to the love and appreciation of the many friends who feel his loss so deeply.
