Obit from The Evening Republic newspaper, Saturday, April 21, 1934:

AGED WIDOW IS TAKEN BY DEATH (Spelling of last name should be BRAND)

Mrs. Elizabeth Brant Dies After Extended Illness--Funeral Monday

Mrs. Elizabeth Brant, 79, widow of Lewis Brant, died this morning at 2:10 o'clock at her home, 825 Pearl Street. She had been ill for two years and for the past three months had been confinded to her bed. Death was due to a complication of diseases, but was hastened by a fall she sustained some time back.

Funeral services will be held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the English Lutheran Church with the Rev. H. E. Turney in charge. Burial will be made in the Lawton Cemetery.

Mrs. Brant was born in Aurora but came to this city when 12 years old. She spent the rest of her life here with the exception of a few years at Little Rock, Arkansas. She was married early in life to Mr. Brant, who died 11 years ago. She was a member of the English Lutheran Church and a highly esteemed woman.

Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Charles Shipman and Mrs. Richard VonWiller of Indianapolis; five grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, three brothers, George Forester, of East Columbus, and John and William Forester, southwest of the city, and a sister, Mrs. Charles Richardson, of Los Angeles, California.
