It must be an added measure of approval from the Unseen, when ten years are added to the allotted time of a person’s life. It must be that their days have been spent in appreciative usefulness. Such is the measure of approval which was added to the live of her who was born on May 5th, 1846 and who died on April 6th, 2927 at the wonderful age of 80 years, 11 months and 1 day. Adelia Huskey lived a fitting life as a child and blossomed into young womanhood shielded by her confession to her Master, for it was at the age of 18 years that she united with the Methodist church and lived a steadfast and consecrated faith the remainder of her lengthened years. She was loved and wooded by John G. Monroe and united with him in the holy bonds of wedlock on September 14th, 1885. To this union were born five children, all living, as follows, Mrs. W. E. Comer, of Denver, Colorado; Mrs. A. G. Lieurance of Cabool; Mrs. L. N. Farmer of Ozark; Mrs. D. A. Bryan of Springfield and one son, O. R. Monroe of Picher, Oklahoma. Besides, she leaves to mourn her loss, sixteen grandchildren and six great grandchildren. With her husband and family, she located in Christian county near Sparta more than 27 years ago. Here she placed her life on the altar of service, giving to the community in spiritual inspiration and service more than she took away -- this is what makes life worth living. After the family had grown and were in homes of their own, she and the husband moved to Springfield where they lived until he preceded her into the Great Beyond on October 9th, 1910. One and a half years ago, she came to the home of her daughter, Mrs. L. N. Farmer in Ozark, where she passed the last days of her life. About three years ago, she was stricken with apoplexy and since that time has gradually slipped away, peacefully “crossing the bar” at the high hour of noon on Wednesday, April 6th, 1927, peacefully, willingly and assured that she was only passing from a life of usefulness to a reward of everlasting peace. This is the inheritance of him who weaves a life of tender benediction about those loved ones of the hearthstones and of the neighborhood in which they have cast their lot. The life of Adelia Huskey as a girl and Adelia Monroe as a wife, mother and friend will be an everlasting monument, built higher than any by human hand, which will be the inspiration of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to live a life consecrated to service and the Almighty.

Amos, Gary J. 4 Mar 1969 - 2 Apr 1989 NN-E 18 May 1989

David Tremble was arrested this week in Springdale, Arkansas, following continued investigation by the Christian County Sheriff's Dept. into the April 2 shooting death of Gary Amos near Nixa. Trimble, age 28, was arrested on a charge of voluntary manslaughter after the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Christian County Sheriff's Department continued their joint investigation of the shooting. Amos was shot with a 30.06 rifle at Trimble's home northwest of Nixa during the evening hours of April 2. A coroner's inquest found April 4 that Kimberly Trimble, David Trimble's estranged wife, had shot Amos. Kimberly had told investigators that Amos had beaten and threatened her repeatedly. Evidence was revealed in the later investigations which resulted in the filing of charges of voluntary manslaughter against David Trimble. Prosecuting Attorney Tim McCormick declined to release details of the additional evidence pending further court action. Voluntary manslaughter, a Class II felony, carries with it punishment ranging from 5-15 years in prison. Trimble waived extradition, and was transported to the Christian County jail from Springdale last Thursday. He was arraigned by Associate Circuit Court Judge Anthony McConnell Friday. Trimble will be represented by Springfield attorney Bill Wendt. His original bond was reduced from $75,000 to $50,000. He is currently out of jail, after posting a $50,000 property bond Monday. Trimble is set to appear for his preliminary hearing June 15.
