Lillian Vandruff Mussetter [1869-1935]
Lillian Vandruff was born August 21, 1869, at Williamstown, Mo., daughter
of George and Sarah Vandruff. Here she grew to womanhood and married Lilburn
They moved to Mitchell county, Iowa, in 1893, locating at Little Cedar, where
her husband preceded her in death thirty-three years.
To this union were born four children, all of whom survive; Harley,
Mrs. S. A. Dierdorff, Mrs. A. S. Balsley, and Eveleen. There are also
three grandchildren, two sisters, and one brother.
She united early in life with the Christian church, and later transferred
her membership to the Baptist church in Little Cedar. Her quiet life and
patient suffering attested to her Christian faith.
Death came peacefully to her August 21, on the eve of her 66th birthday,
climaxing an illness of nine years' duration, the last five of which she
had been a helpless invalid. For the past year she had tender care at the
Williams Bigelow home in Osage.
Funeral services were held at the Champion funeral home Friday, August 23,
at 2:30 p.m. in charge of Rev. John D. Kern, pastor of the Baptist church.
Interment was made in the Little Cedar Cemetery.
