Mrs. G. A. Bussell Goes to Her Reward –
Mrs. George Bussell passed away at St. Francis Hospital in Grand Island about 3 o'clock last Friday morning, following an operation which she underwent on the previous Monday. Her condition was very serious during the four days between the operation and her death, and friends could only hope for the best. During that time, members of her family and friends made frequent trips to Grand Island to visit the hospital where she lay sick. In the early morning hours last Friday, Mr. Bussell was again called to the hospital just a few minutes before Mrs. Bussell passed away. Perhaps no one realized better than Mrs. Bussell herself, that possibly this would be her last illness and she showed a tender solicitation in regard to the future of her children.
The funeral was held at the Methodist church in Wolbach at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Attendance was very large, but not more than half of those present being able to find seats in the church. Very impressive funeral services were conduced (sic) by Rev. Moore, and the body was laid to rest in Hillside cemetery. The large attendance at the funeral, and the wonderfully beautiful floral offerings, were true expressions of the great respect and love which all in this community held for Mrs. Bussell. The bereaved husband and sons have the deepest sympathy of all.
Among relatives from a distance who were here to attend the funeral were the following: John Easterbrook of Lincoln; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Braddock and son, Earl of Hastings; Fred Easterbrook of Amherst, and Byron Baker, and son Sammy and Sam Baker of Weeping Water, who came the latter part of the week and returned home Monday; Mr. and Mrs. Roland Easterbrook of Hayes Center, Nebr., and Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Allen of Phillips, who remained here until Wednesday. There were also relatives present from Greeley.
Lottie Dottie Adelia Easterbrook was born near Cushing, Nebraska August 16, 1881, and spent her entire life in the vicinity of Cushing and Wolbach.
She was married November 12, 1900 to George A. Bussell, and to them were born four children, Darold, Kenneth, Stanton, and Forrest, all of whom survive.
In young girlhood, she united with the Methodist Episcopal church in Wolbach, and continued a faithful member till the end, all her church life of more than a quarter of a century being spent in the membership of this one church.
She died in the St. Francis hospital in Grand Island, Nebraska, in the early morning of December 17, 1926, aged 45 years, 4 months, and 1 day.
Beside her husband and sons, she is survived by her father, A. Easterbrook, of Wolbach; three brothers, John, of Lincoln, Rollin of Hayes Center, and Fred of Amherst; and by two sisters, Mrs. Nora Braddock of Hastings, and Mrs. Agnes Evans, of Clovis, New Mexico; also by two grandchildren, Dewayne Clayton and Phyllis Darleen, children of Darold and Esther Bussell.
CARD OF THANKS – The wealth of kindness, sympathy, and aid showered upon us in the time of our great sorrow, has placed us under all-time obligation to so many persons, that we fear we may not be able to reach each one in payment of our debt of gratitude, by written or spoken words. Great is our grief, but greater still would it be, if failure to make acknowledgement to each one who was so kind to our loved one and to us, should be regarded as a lack of appreciation on our part. And so we present this acknowledgement through the columns of the Wolbach Messenger, sincerely trusting that it may reach the eye of all for whom intended, and by each one be received as earnestly personal.
G. A. Bussell and family, D. E. Bussell and family, A. Easterbrook and family.
