Birth: Oct. 19, 1871
Death: Oct., 1961

Last rites for Mrs. Mary Louise Andriano, who died Friday, were held in Columbus Funeral home Saturday afternoon, with burial in Odd Fellows Rest cemetery. The Rev. William F. Hathaway of First Methodist church officiated. Mrs. Andriano had interesting history, both in the family of her parents and of her husband. She was born in High Hill, near Schulenburg, Oct. 19, 1871, coming here in 1882. She would have been 90, had she lived until today. Her parents were Gustav and Mary Baumgarten Paulsen, her father having been a cabinetmaker who made the heavy doors and other woodwork still used on the present Colorado county courthouse and who worked for the old G.H. & S. A. railroad when its shops were in Harrisburg, helping to build railway cars. Before that, he served with the Confederate army. She was married in 1885 to Charles Joseph Andriano, who came to this country from Germany. Mr. Andriano was once postmaster at Osage and later operated a restaurant in Columbus. He died young of pneumonia in 1901. While a young man in St. Louis, he was taken to Vienna, Austria, where he had a part of his lung removed. He came south because of his health. The family has his citizen ship papers, dated 1859. Mrs. Andriano had been a member of the local Methodist church longer than anyone else, having joined in 1880, when the church was on Prairie st. She had been blind for years and had been under doctor's care since 1954. She is survived by 3 daughters, Mrs. A. N. Evans Sr., Mrs. Charline Lewis and Miss Mary Andriano; a brother, Herman Paulsen; 3 grandchildren, Mrs. Joe L. McKinzie and Arthur Evans Jr. of Columbus and Mrs. R. E. Koenig of Houston; and 7 great- grandchildren. Pallbearers were Gus Miller Jr., Jack Allen, Billy Paulsen, R. E. Wolters, Raymond Burger, Delmar Fehrenkamp and Jack Gillespie.
