OBITUARY
MRS. DELILAH NICHOLSON

Delilah Goosic, daughter of Andrew and Julia Goosic, was born in Ohio, January 15, 1837. She was married to Elisha Nicholson in Iowa in 1854. Eight children were born to their union, three sons and five daughters. Of these two sons and one daughter preceded her to the great beyond. They moved with their family from Iowa to Furnas County, where Mr. Nicholson took a homestead south of Hollinger. They resided on their farm for many years. Mr. Nicholson passed away August 25, 1916. Mrs. Nicholson continued to reside on the farm after the death of her husband. Later she moved to Beaver City where she resided at the time of her death.

While she and her husband resided in Iowa, they professed their faith in Christ and united with the Free Methodist Church. Later they united with the Precept Christian Church under the ministry of Rev. A. C. Corbin. In October 1925, she was stricken with paralysis, since which time she has been an invalid. For about two years she was cared for in her home by Mr. and Mrs. James Hewitt and during the past four months was cared for by her daughter, Mrs. Rose Leonard.

She passed out of this life into the life beyond at 1 o'clock, August 25, 1928, aged 91 years, 7 months and 10 days. She awaits the coming of her daughters, Mrs. S. E. Leonard, Appleton, Mo.; Mrs. Jane Gilchrist, Bridgeport, Nebr.; Mrs. James Hewitt, Cheyenne, Wyo.; and Mrs. Rose Leonard, Beaver City; one son Frank Nicholson, Lincoln, Nebr.; one brother, Jack Goosic, Sheridan, Wyo.; 39 grandchildren, 73 great-grandchildren, 14 great-great-grandchildren and many other relatives and friends. She was a kind, loving and self-sacrificing mother and a good neighbor. We commend all of her loved ones remaining to the tender mercies of a kind and loving heavenly Father, who doeth all things well.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev. T. A. Lindenmeyer at the Christian Church in Beaver City on Monday afternoon at 2:30. Interment was made in the Turner (Union) Cemetery.
