The following is transcribed from a photocopy of an obituary from an unknown newspaper (possibly the Necedah Republican since that was the local newspaper at the time). I believe Emma's maiden name to be spelled incorrectly. I'm also not sure that Toledo, OH is the correct location of their marriage. I have a copy of a Marriage License issued from Athens County, OH.

"OBITUARY Mrs. Otto Maki

Mrs. Otto Maki passed away at her home in this village on Thursday, March 30, 1944, at the age of 59 years, 10 months and 29 days, after having been in failing health for some time.

Emma Nutila was born May 1, 1884, in Mikkeli, Finland. In 1908 she was united in marriage to Otto Maki in Toledo, Ohio, and to this union four children, three sons and one daughter, were born, namely John, Robert, George, and Hilda, all of whom, with the husband, survive.

In 1905, Mr. And Mrs. Maki and children moved to Necedah, which place has since been the family home. During her residence here, Mrs. Maki endeared herself to neighbors and friends for her unselfish devotion to family and friends and her concern and desire to be of aid to others. Although her household duties occupied most of her time, she nevertheless ably and graciously assisted in the welfare of others until later years when ill health confined her to her home most of the time.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, April 3, at the Necedah Methodist church, being in charge of Rev. J. Mason, and interment was made in the family lot in Bayview cemetery.

John Maki, who is stationed with U. S. forces in Burma, and Robert who is on duty with U. S. forces in Australia, were unable to attend the funeral of their mother."
