Mrs. K.B. Danuser Died Suddenly
Well Known Fulton Woman Succumbs at Hospital Friday
Mrs. Anna Christine Koch Danuser, 65 years old, who was born in Gasconade County, but who had lived in Callaway County all her married life, died Friday afternoon at the Callaway Hospital in Fulton just a few hours after she had been taken there for medical attention. Mrs. Danuser had not been in the best of health for several years but had been up and around at her household duties as usual and had attended regular Lenten Services at the Evangelical and Reformed Church Wednesday night. Her sudden death came as a shock to members of her family and her friends.
Mrs. Danuser was born near Owensville, Missouri, September 26, 1879, as a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Koch. She spent her girlhood days there and was married March 29, 1902, to Kasper Berry Danuser, at that time engaged in machine shop work at Readsville, living there a few years and then going to Auxvasse. The family moved to Fulton in 1910 and this had been Mrs. Danuser's home since.
Mrs. Danuser spent her girlhood in what then was known as the Evangelical Church and continued her church affiliations in Fulton with the Evangelical and Reformed Church in this city where she was a loyal and regular communicant at services. She also was a long-time member of the Woman's Guild of that congregation, missing very few meetings and serving faithfully in the various activities carried out by that organization.
Her husband preceeded her in death June 19, 1937. He for many years conducted the Danuser Machine Shop on State Street and a threshing machine business.
Mrs. Danuser is survived by three sons and two daughters, as follows, Mrs. Harold D. Hayden of Mexico, Mrs. Leona Glover, Henry Danuser and Alfred Danuser of Fulton and Walter Danuser of St. Louis. She also leaves four grandchildren, John Danuser, Jerry Danuser and Marcia Star Danuser of Fulton and Felicia Danuser of St. Louis, two brothers and sisters, Mrs. Charles Diebold of Rosebud, Missouri, Mrs. W.F. Steinbeck of Kansas City, Henry Koch of Los Angeles, California and Charles E. Koch of Great Bend, Kansas.
