Doust, pastor of the South Geddes Street Church of Christ accompanied the relatives and friends to Richland and conducted the services in the Church of Christ there. She was laid to rest in the Richland Cemetery just a little way from the place where she began her married life. The display of flowers assured everyone that Mrs. Mellen had many warm friends.
