Birth: Aug. 2, 1853
Marion County

Death: Jun. 2, 1925

Mrs. A. R. BUNGER, one of Worthington’s oldest and most respected women, died at her home there on Tuesday, June 2, 1925, following a long illness.

Mrs. BUNGER was a daughter of William and Anna MUIR, who were natives of Scotland, and she was born in Indianapolis, on August 2, 1853. Her parents moved to Clay County and resided many years near Howesville.

On May 8, 1873, Sarah MUIR and A. R. BUNGER were married by Rev. Samuel WARD, Presbyterian minister at Howesville. She had joined that church on March 9, 1872. Her church membership was a source of happiness to her. Mr. and Mrs. BUNGER attended services regularly, traveling on horseback, later in carts and wagons and buggies and finally in automobiles, as the changing means of transportation advance.

Mr. and Mrs. BUNGER began housekeeping on a farm four and a half miles south of Howesville, which remained their home for forty years.

In 1908 they moved to Worthington and a year later occupied the home, which they built and in which she passed away.

Mrs. BUNGER is survived by her husband; two daughters, Miss Clarenda BUNGER and Mrs. J. E. STAHL, of Worthington, and a son J. L. BUNGER, of Rocky Fort Colo., and a sister, Mrs. F. M PEAVY.

The funeral services were held last Friday from the M. E. Church at Worthington, the Rev. C. A. MCCULLOUGH, officiating.

Interment was in the Worthington Cemetery.
