Obituary courtesy Mrs. Brewster Dies
Remains will be sent to Tescott for Burial
Mrs. J. W. Brewster died Wednesday at 3:00 o'clock at hr home 4 miles west of Salina of peritonitis. She was 42 years old and leaves beside her husband, four children, the oldest of which is 20 and the younger is 13 years old. Mrs. Brewster was the daughter of Mrs. Henry Baldwin of near Ada, Ottawa county and she has a brother and a number of sisters living there. She came to Salina with her husband about two years ago and set led on the farm west of the city.
The remains were shipped on the Lincoln branch railroad to Tescott Wednesday at 4 o'clock. There were no services until the body reached the home of the deceased in Ada to which place the body was taken from Tescott. The funeral services were held at the Ada Methodist church Thursday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock and the remains were buried in the cemetery at that plaMattie A Baldwin was born in Iowa, October 22, 1866 and died near Salina, Kan, Nov 4, 1908. She was converted at the age of 17 and became a member of the M. E. church and has ever since been an earnest follower of Christ. She was united in marriage to J. W. Brewster March 6, 1887. After living a few years on the home place near Salt Creek, they moved to a farm near Culver and later to a farm three miles north of Tescott where they lived until February of 1907 when they moved to their present home three miles west of Salina. Wherever they lived she has won many friends. She was sick about two month, but was a patient sufferer. Everything was done that could be done, but at last death claimed her for his own. A Beautiful life has gone out and there is another desolate home, and a heart broken husband and children to mourn for her, besides her mother, brother and sisters and many other relatives. Before he body was removed from her house, many cut flowers from the florist were sent to adorn her coffin by her friends and neighbors. A large piece was sent by the M. E. Church of Salina, of which she was a member and several of the member and neighbors attended the brief service at the house and then followed the remains to the U. P. Deport and by every token showed their love and sympathy, even following the stricken ones into the car and the remaining as long as possible, as they were waiting for two other pieces of cut flowers to arrive, one from the Epworth League and one from the class in the High School of which her son, Lester, is a member. Her body was transported by rail to Tescott from thence it was taken in charge by the undertaker.
Mr. Heckert and family had the remains taken into his own home where they were most tenderly cared for through the night. Religious services were held at his house before removal to Ada where the funeral services were held in the M. D. church from thence her remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground in Fairview Cemetery, beside Father and Mother Brewster there to rest until Christ shall come, when his reward shall be literally fulfilled, " I am the resurrection and the life and because I live ye shall live also.". The family and other mourning friends can never cease to think kindly of all the acts of kindness in their affliction by their friends. Those tokens only prove how much Mattie Brewster was beloved and everywhere she went fast friendships were formed. Several of the neighbors were heard to say " I never heard her say an unkind word of any one." She is the second child of H. G. and E. S. Baldwin. Her funeral services at Ada were conducted by Rev Gilmore, assisted by Rev Gouldin, of Barnard, and Rev Hood of Tescott. She used to be an Ada girl, and was beloved by all who knew her as was attested by the immense assembly of mourners. The house was packed and the most lovely flowers were corded upon her casket that anyone ever saw. They were intermingled with long fern that played in the breeze beside the casket. We hope that all will meet her in the other world. ce.
