Mr. and Mrs. Coleman came to Nebraska in the fall of 1893, settling on a farm near Strang.They moved to the home in west Geneva in 1905. Mr. Coleman died Febraury 1, 1931. Mrs. Coleman and son Joe continued to make their home there.
Mrs. Coleman had not been in the best of health for several years, having had a serious illness several months ago, but immediately preceding her death she was as well as usual, discharging her home duties with ease. Saturday morning early her call of distress brought her son to her bedside, but she passed away almost immediately.

Mrs. Coleman was a faithful wife, a devoted mother and a friendly neighbor and she will be greatly missed by them all. She "rests from her labors" leaving blessed memories behind.
Funeral services were held at 2:30 p.m., January 18, at the Geneva Methodist church, conducted by her pastor, Rev. W.H. Shoaf, following brief services held at the home at 2 o'clock.
The pastor spoke from the text "Watch therefore for ye know not the hour." Matthew 24:42.
