Woodland (CA) Daily Democrat, Thursday, August 16, 1934:
Relative of Local Residents Passes
Mrs. Lillie Coffman, 79 (sic), resident of Lincoln, Nebraska, and well known in Yolo county, died Tuesday at her home after a prolonged illness. She was the sister of B. F. Mumma of Dunnigan. Mrs. Alice Mumma of Woodland is a sister-in-law of the dead woman and Frank Mumma, also of Woodland, is a cousin.

The Lincoln (NE) Star, August 19, 1934:
Mrs. Lillie Mumma Coffman, 77, was born in Hagerstown, Md., on Sept. 10, 1856. She died Aug. 14. She was married to Salathiel Coffman March 4, 1885, at Mounty Morris, Ill. Immediately afterward they couple came to Nebraska, settling on a farm near Adams where they lived until 1909 when they came to Lincoln. The home was at 236 So. 27th. She is survived by a brother, Frank Mumma of Dunigan, Calif., and two daughters, Miss Marion Coffman and Mrs. Bessie J. Levy (sic), both of Lincoln. Funeral services were held Aug. 16. Burial was in Wyuka. Rev. Dean R. Leland said, "During the last ten or fifteen years, she suffered the limitations of invalidism, but nevertheless maintained a keen interest in life and her relationship with her relatives and family. In all these years, she maintained remarkable cheerfulness and buoyancy of spirit, always optimistic and looking on the favorable side of life. She had an unusual capacity for friendship and her friends found great joy in visiting her sick room or sitting about in her wheel chair, and all who knew her felt that they were better for her life and influence. If one of the chief uses of this life is to make friends for the next, Mrs. Coffman abundantly fulfilled this purpose, for she had many friends who have now gone beyond and many friends left behind whom she will someday greet in her heavenly home.
