Mrs. Ella Brideson
Ella Delilah Manville was born on January 4, 1871 near Iowa City and died October 21 at the Greene County hospital at the age of 72 years and 9 mos and 17 days.
She was the youngest daughter of Mary Minteer and Lyman Banks Manville. When four years old she came with her parents by train to Guthrie County where they bought land and built a home.
She attended the Guthrie county schools and was one of the group of the first graduating class of Bayard High School (1887). Judge Truman S. Stevens was at that time Superintendent of the Bayard Schools. She took Normal Training at Guthrie Center several different terms, and was a successful rural teacher for a number of years.
On Sept. 20, 1898, she was united in marriage to John W. Brideson at the home of the bride's parents, south of Bayard. Rev Hare, pastor of the Methodist church officiated. To the union five children were born, a little son Robert dying in infancy, and Winfred B. who died Dec 27 1937. Those surviving are Mrs. Freda Sumner of Des Moines, Everett L. and Louis W. of Bayard. Mr. Brideson passed away August 24, 1931.
Her parents preceded her in death many years ago; also two brothers Charles Manville and Oscar Manville. Another brother Bert E. Manville of Iowa City survives, also sisters, Mrs. Emma Richards of Iowa City, Mrs. Josephine Corrigan of Bayard and Mrs. Lottie Chapman of Matson, New Mexico.
Grandchildren are John Kinnick Brideson, Jerry Brideson Sumner, Jeanette Kinnick Brideson, Richard Williams and Robert Louis Brideson.
Mrs. Brideson was a member of the Methodist Church and for many years an active member of the Ladies Aid, and the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society. She was a charter member of the Bayard Woman's Club and served as its president. She was a member of the local Delphian chapter and also served as the president. During her more active years she was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star.
Mrs. Brideson was a good manager and in spite of her poor health, was a very good mother to her family. Her many friends will bear witness that her passing away has left a lonely place in a rich circle of fellowship. Funeral services were held in the Bayard Methodist church on Sunday afternoon in charge of Rev. E. H. Jackson with burial in Highland cemetery.
Out of town relatives attending the funeral were Mrs. Sadie Amey and Oscar and Edmund Cain and Mrs. And Mrs. Herbert Cain of Jefferson, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Sumner and Jerry of Des Moines, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Brideson of Jamaica, Mrs. Iva Wilkenson of Terrill, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Quayle and Mrs. Jennie Baker of Bagley and Mrs. Elbert Hayden of Panora.
