DIED. At 9½ o'clock, Saturday, August 17th, 1878, Sarah A., wife of G.H. Justus, in the 37th year of her age. Funeral service was held in the Presbyterian Church, Minneapolis, on the following Sunday, conducted by the Rev. Pillsbury, of Manhattan, after which the remains were interred in the city cemetery, where the services were concluded.

Mr. Justus and family came to Ottawa County in 1870, from Schoolcraft, Michigan, since which time they have lived in this city, and on their farm, 8 miles southeast, in Bennington township, where they were living at the time of Mrs. Justus' death. They had formed many warm friendships and pleasant associations. It had for some weeks been quite well known that the deceased was ill, but when on last Sunday morning the funeral was announced for the afternoon, an expression of pain and surprise was visible on many countenances. Rev. Stephen Pillsbury, a Baptist clergyman from Manhattan, who happened to be in the city, kindly consented to conduct the funeral services. A large congregation of friends and acquaintances assembled to take part, most of whom followed the remains to their last resting place. The sorely bereaved husband, and the little boy and girl, whom they had taken to raise, were the only mourners, except many sympathizing friends. Mrs. Justus had long been a most consistent member of the Baptist Church, and it is the belief of everyone that she died in the discharge of duty.
