Mrs. A. Romas Passed Away at Burns, Wyoming

Julia Apland was born in Norway, January 26, 1856, and died at her home in Burns, Wyoming, March 9, 1920, after a long illness.

With her parents she came to Story County, Iowa, when she was fourteen years old. She was married to Albert Romsa, December 16, 1876. To this union were born seven sons as follows: G. H. Romsa, of Cheyenne, Wyo.; J. A., George and Martin E. of Burns, Wyo.; Sebert and Joseph C. of Albin, Wyo., and Albert Jr. of Glenda, Wyo., all of whom were at her bedside when death came.

The family moved to Emmet County, Iowa, in 1883, and in October, 1919 moved to Burns, Wyoming, where she resided until her death.

Mrs. Romas is survived by her husband and seven sons, also eleven grandchildren; and one brother, Tom Apland of Huxley, Iowa.

Funeral services were held from the Presbyterian church in Burns, Wednesday morning at ten o'clock, conducted by Dr. R. T. Caldwell (?) of Cheyenne, who noted the 23rd Psalm as a text, the words of which could have been used appropriately by Mrs. Romsa herself as an expression of the security with which she approached the end. Six of her sons acted as pallbearers.

A large number of friends of the family attended the services, and there was a profusion of beautiful flowers. Interment took place in Lakeview Cemetery, Cheyenne. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, March 26, 1930)
