"Mrs Annie Carssow, wife of George C Carssow of Lamona, died at the Harrington Hospital Monday, the 20th, diffuse supperative peritonitis. She was 35 years, 4 months and 7 days of age, having been born in Minnesota August 13, 1880. Mortician J E Turner prepared the body for burial and it was shipped to Odessa where the funeral was held and interment made in the Odessa Cemetery. The Carssows are old residents of Lamona where they own a farm, and are generally known throughout this end of Lincoln County. The sorrowing family have the sympathy of their many friends in this sad loss."
(WA State Journal and Ritzville Times: Dec 30, 1915) --
"The sad news of the death of Mrs George Carssow spread over our community Monday after relatives received the report that she had passed away early that morning. While the death was not wholly unexpected, as she was considered at death's door immediately after her operation for peritonitis at the Harrington hospital last Wednesday, the shock was all the harder to bear for she had been reported as rallying nicely and was thought to have a fair chance for recovery when the silver cord of life snapped and she was wafted from time to eternity, after an illness of only one week's duration. Mrs Carssow was a woman of most estimable character, a loving helpmate and wife, a kind and affectionate mother and a generous and considerable neighbor. That her efforts for good were not confined alone to the home circle, but went abroad among those about her as was the best evidenced by the number of friends not bound by kindred ties that came from unusual distances to pay tribute to her memory and view for the last time her remains, proving conclusively that to know her was to love her. Mrs Carssow was the daughter of Jacob E Luiten, who has lived in the Ritzville country for the past 23 years. She was born in MN, and at 12 years of age came to WA with her parents, where she grew to womanhood. Fifteen years ago she was united in marriage with George Carssow and they took up their abode on the Carssow ranch near Lamona. Six children blessed their union, the eldest a girl of 14 years, and the youngest just a little tot, all of whom will have to finish life without a mother's guiding hand. Besides these little ones she leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, her aged father and mother, Mr and Mrs Jacob Luiten, six sisters, Mrs C A Simpson of Odessa; Mrs Henry Amen, Miss Lizzie Luiten and Mrs Fred Bourgard, of Ritzville; Mrs G W Hildebrand, of Buckeye, WA; Mrs Fred Westerman of Portland, OR, and 4 brothers, Peter, John, Alfred and William, all residing in the Odessa or Ritzville countries. The funeral services were held at the English Congregational church at 2:30 Wednesday afternoon, Rev G Graedel of the Emmaus Congregational church, who was pastor of the Ritzville church when her father's family came to Washington, and who officiated at her confirmation into the Congregational church and later also at her wedding ceremony, delivered a very touching ceremony in German after which the closing and burial services were given in English by Rev W S Pritchard, the local pastor, when interment took place in the Odessa Cemetery.—Odessa Record."
