    On October 18, 1903 she was united in marriage to Hugh Hatfield, who preceded her in death on January 1, 1951. Also preceding her in death were an infant son, Forest; her parents, two brothers, Lem and Hubert Mills and a sister, Addie Hatfield; two half-sisters, Belle Hart and Laura Hatfield; three half-brothers, Sam, Neal and Ernest Mills.

    After the death of her husband, she moved to Martinstown where she lived the remainder of her life with the exception of a few months spent in the Monroe Manor and the past two weeks in the hospital.
