Holland Patent - On Tuesday, January 19, after an illness of several weeks, occurred the death of Mrs. Mathias Blust, whose late home is about two miles from this village in the town of Wethersfield.
Mrs. Blust's maiden name was Catherine Beller. She was born in Germany, March 22, 1846. In 1864 she was married to Mathias Biust, and in 1868 she came to this country with her husband. For several years Mr. and Mrs. Blust lived in Utica, but in 1876 they moved to the home where they have since resided. Of their ten children eight survive, William F. of Stittville, George of Holland Patent, Edward, Frederick, Harriet and Eleanor of Utica, Anna K. of New York and Minnie, who is laboring as a missionary in Devon, Jamaica. Mrs. Blust is also survived by her husband and two sisters, Mrs. Wm. Heer, who resides in Schenectady and Anoline, who still lives in Germany. For many years Mrs. Blust has been a member of the Presbyterian Church in this village, and up to the time of her last illness she was able to take an active interest in the work of her church, attending service every Sunday in the school house at Wethersfield. She was know to all as a kind friend and neighbor, a faithful mother and wife, and a consistent Christian. The funeral services will be conducted by her pastor, Rev. J.N. Brocker, at 10:30 a.m. Friday. The interment will be in Olden Barneveld Cemetery. Utica Herald Dispatch, Wednesday Evening, January 20, 1915
