Funeral Rites Held Today for Sadie Osterhout
Ninety four years ago on Oct. 8, 1871, Sarah Isabelle Budd-better known as Sadie-was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, to Daniel B. and Josephine A. Budd. She died Aug. 30, 1965, in Salt Lake City.

In 1879 Daniel Budd settled with his partner, Mr. McKay in Wyoming Territory with their heard of almost 800 cattle they had driven from Atchison, Kansas. In the spring Daniel arranged for his wife and four children to come by train to Green River to join him. Sadie was the eldest of the four children, surrounded by brothers, Charlie, Jess, and John.

Mrs. Budd took the children to Green River for their schooling in the winter time. Summers were very active with ponies to ride, and a great number of emigrant trains passed through, since the ranch was located on the Lander cutoff of the Oregon Trail. Many Indians ame and went. ? and Daniel were born. As the population in the county began to grow, Sadie was known simply as "the girl". Mr. Budd built the first store in teh area and a new house. Sadie helped her mother be hostess to the many travelers who stopped over.

Sadie married Algeroy Osterhout Sept. 20, 1894. Al and Sadie worked hard on their ranch. Sadie helped Al grub sagebrush by hand and could ride and work cattle as well as any man.

Chester Osterhout was born to them April 11, 1895.

Josephine was born March 29, 1899. Chester died when he was eight years old in Kansas City, where Sadie had taken him for medical attention.

When Al died in 1941, Aunt Sadie continued to carry on operating the ranch. She managed to maintain an active social life, was on the Board of Directors of the Big Piney State Bank, and rode a horse until she was almost eighty. This was not pleasure riding. This was working cattle and driving them to various pastures.

She was very active in the Order of Eastern Star, dem?tting from the Pinedale Chapter to become a Charter Member of the Big Piney Chapter in 193? in which she served a term as Worthy Matron.

Her grandson, Kenneth, took over management of the ranch in 1947.

Sadie's mother, Josephine A. Budd preceded her in death in 1944 at the age of 102. Her daughter, Josephine died July 4, 1964. She is survived by one brother, John Budd, by her grandson, Kenneth Guio, his wife, Marjorie, her four great grandchildren, Cotton, Susan, Candon and Tagg, and son-in-law Harrison Guio of Walnut Creek, Calif.

Aunt Sadie had all the makings of the great Pioneerwoman that she was. She earned a distinguished respect from all by her courage, hard work and kind heart. She was noted for her dry humor and was a tremendous business woman. A child always brought out a twinkle in her eye.

Funeral services are being held today conducted by the Big Piney Order of the Eastern Star Chapter No. 42, at the multi-purpose room in the grade school. Burial will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Salt Lake City beside her husband.
