Interment was made in the Catholic cemetery at Kearney. A large number of relatives and old time friends from Platte county went up to attend the funeral and pay their respects to the memory of one who was near and dear to them. To know Mrs. Gentleman was to love her. Always of a pleasing disposition, with ever a kind and cheerful word for everyone, she was one of God's own."
