    Funeral services were held at 2 p. m. Tuesday in the Milton S. D. B. church for Mrs. J. H. Burdick who died Sunday in a convalescents home in Janesville. Rev. Carroll L. Hill officiated and Kenneth Babcock sang two selections. Burial was in Milton cemetery with Rev. W. D. Burdick, Prof. W. D. Burdick, Prof. D. N. Inglis, L. A. Babcock, R. L. Hull and Elston Shaw acting as pallbearers. Out of town relatives attending were Mr. and Mrs. Percy Burdick of Rockford and son S/Sgt. David Burdick of Spokane, Wash.
    Clara Lenore Stillman, daughter of Jarius M. and Lenore Langworthy Stillman, was born Jan. 6, 1869, at Potters Hill, R. I., her mother dying at her birth. She was taken into the home of her grandparents, the William L. Langworthys, Watch Hill, R. I., where she grew to womanhood. She attended the Boston Conservatory of Music, Alfred University and Milton College, receiving special musical training in all these schools. Her father, Dr. J. M. Stillman, was director of vocal music in Milton College for many years. She possessed a soprano voice of unusual quality, in which her father took great pride.
    While attending Milton College, she met Dr. Justin H. Burdick, a practicing physician in Milton, to whom she was married Sept. 2, 1898, at Watch Hill, R. I. Dr. Burdick brought his bride to his Milton home on High street. Both were interested in church and civic affairs.
    Dr. Burdick was killed in an automobile accident April 3, 1939, in which Mrs. Burdick was critically injured. She had 13 bones fractured and she never fully recovered. She was a patient in Mercy hospital, Janesville, for a time prior to the last three weeks of her life in the convalescent home where she died.
    Survivors are the three sons, William, Robert and Roger, and two daughters, Ruth and Phyllis, and seven grandchildren.
