The Nelson Gazette, Thursday, October 9, 1947
Hattie Orlena, the daughter of James and Permelia Wilson, was born October 28, 1870, at Austin, Indiana, and departed this life from her home east of Nelson, Nebraska, October 9, 1947, at the age of 76 years, 11 months and 11 days.
She came with her parents to Jennings, Kansas, in 1887, who filed on a homestead and lived for some years in a sod house.
In 1905, on October 5th, she was united in marriage to John Bauman at Jennings. They came to Nelson that same year and located on a farm east of Nelson. To this union there were born three children: John, Esther and Edith. Esther preceded her mother in death, when just a young girl.
Those who survive Sister Bauman are her son John, with whom she has made her home; one daughter, Mrs. Edith Champlin of Nelson, and two grandchildren, Owen and Leah. She leaves one brother, Aaron Wilson of Albany, Oregon, and numerous nieces and nephews.
In 1913, under the pastorate of Rev. T.C. Priestly, Sister Bauman united with the Nora Methodist Church. We can say of Sister Bauman that perhaps her greatest hobby was her flowers. She was never too weary to carry water to them so that she might have a continuous bloom of the petunia, the asters and other flowers, thus making a small portion of God's footsool bright and beautiful.
Because she was a Christian mother we can now think of her as being in the great flower garden of God.
Mother Waits for Me.
You do not think of her as gone!
Her spirit lingers near.
I know she'll strive, as mothers do,
To make your pathway clar.
No matter where on earth you are,
At home, on land, or sea,
Look up and say, as when a child,
"My mother watches me."
You think of her at dear God's throne
From pain and sorrow free,
Her only care, her only prayer,
"Lord guide my own to me."
And when your work on earth is done,
And Heaven's gate you see,
Look up and say, as when a child,
"My mother waits for me."
The funeral services were held in the Nora Methodist Church Sunday afternoon at 2:30 and were in charge of Rev. Mrs. C.V. Powell, assisted by Rev. Clarence V. Powell. Music was furnished by Jess Hamel who sang, "Rock of Ages," and Mrs. Corwin Shipherd who sang, "Glory For Me." Mrs. Eunice Farber of Omaha, a sister of Edwin Champlin, sang "The Old Rugged Cross." Mrs. Leslie Swigart presided at the piano.
The pallbearers were: Dale Gerbeling, Russell Hall, Clarence Carlson, Joe Burke, Charles Holms and Carl King. Interment was in the Nora cemetery (sic).
