I am told that Robert and Zada's brother, Lowell, has passed away within the
past few days. Has anyone seen an obit?

> Aug 30, 1946 - Car Accident Fatal to Melbourne Woman
> Mrs Zada Miller Walker, age 28, daughter G. H. Miller of
Melbourne, was killed shortly before midnight Sunday when the car she was
driving left the highway east of Forrest City, as she was returning to
Memphis after spending the day at Melbourne. With her was a friend and
roommate, Miss Ann Edison of Memphis, who accompanied Mrs Miller to
Melbourne for a week-end visit.
> It is thought that Mrs Walker fell asleep and her car ran off
the highway, throwing her from the car and killing her instantly. Miss
Edison was not seriously injured.
> Mrs Walker was a graduate nurse and had been employed in
Memphis several months.
> Funeral services were held at the Baptist Church at Melbourne
Tuesday afternoon, Rev Hugh Cooper of Melbourne officiating, assisted by Rev
S. A. Wiles of Batesville. Interment was in the Gray cemetery, near Sage.
> Mrs Walker's husband was killed about a year ago in a railroad
accident near their home in Pennsylvania. Her brother, Robert G. Miller,
former Clerk of Izard County, lost his life while in action with the U. S.
Army in Germany.
> Be sides her parents, she is survived by six brothers, Lowell
of Batesville, J. C., Charles, and John Eldon of Melbourne, Thomas of
Jonesboro and G. H., Jr., of Little Rock and a sister, Mrs Margaret Wamock
of Melbourne.
