OBITUARY:
IN FINAL REST;
Mrs. A. B. Buren Passes Away at Her Court Street Home At the age of 50 years and 25 days
Mrs. A. B. Buren of this city, breathed her last a 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, at the family home on the corner of Court and High streets. The sad climax came not unexpectedly, the deceased lady having been ailing seriously for some months past, with a phase of her grievous malady (consumption) that left but little hope for those whose anxious watching and loving ministrations were given with unwearined devotion. For nearly ten years decedent had combatted the ravages of the affliction, bravely and patiently bearing the sufferings and deprivations incident to her trouble, and nothing that devotion could prompt or ample means supply was left undone to overcome the physical disquiet to which she was subjected. Frequent changes in climate, the highest courses of medical treatment, with two seasons at the Colorado Springs sanitarium, all were tried without avail. Mrs. Buren was a native Kentuckian, but her childhood was spent in Gentry county, Missouri, in which state, near the town of Trenton, she was married to Mr. Buren in September, 1868. She was a devoted wife and mother, and her contact with the world, beyond the home circle, won to her, through her gentle, Christian character, hosts of genuine, kindly friends, who, with the stricken hyusband and mourning children, Max O. and Leda, will most sincerely mourn her demise. She was an ardent and consistent follower of the Congregational faith, and a zealous member of the First church of this city.
