Spouse of Samuel Dubbs

Celia Dubbs, daughter of L.B. and Mary Maxwell, was born February 23, 1871, in Missouri, and passed away at Crowley, Colo., October 30, 1955.
At the age of one year, the family moved to Wilson County, Kansas, and when she was 16 they came to Ness County.
She attended church services at little Cyrus school where she later confessed her faith in Christ and was baptized. It was in this same church that she was united in marriage to Samuel E. Dubbs on October 28, 1888. They established their home in southern Trego County where Mr. Dubbs had taken a homestead and built a sod house.
To this union were born three children, Maurice E. of Ransom, Alice Gravatt of Selma, Calif., and Mabel Adkinson of Crowley, Colo. This was a typical pioneer family who endured all the hardships of the early day settlers. In 1900, they bought a farm west of Ransom where they resided until 1925 when they retired to their home in Ransom.
Mr. Dubbs preceded her in death on April 13, 1945, shortly after celebrating their 56th wedding anniversary. Her entire life was centered in her home, her family, and any religious or worthwhile activity of her community. Due to illness, she had made her home for the last six years with her daughter and husband, Mabel and Omer Adkinson of Crowley, Colo. Although bedfast for the last two years, patience and cheerfulness reflected the faith she maintained in her Savior and her life was a benediction to those whose privilege it was to care for her during her illness.
She leaves to mourn her loss, her three children, eight grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and a host of other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were held from the Ransom Methodist Church, Wednesday afternoon, November 2, conducted by Rev. Paul McDowell of Crowley, Colo. Music was furnished by Mrs. Louis Horchem, organist, and a mixed quartette composed of Mrs. Reginald Buxton, Mrs. Willard Horchem, Charles Shellenberger and Jess Dieffenbach, who sang “My Jesus I Love Thee”, “God Will Take Care of You” and “In The Sweet By and By.” Bearers were Lyman Conard, John Petty, Orville Horchem, Clarence Horchem, Charles Miller and John G. Mishler. Interment was in the Ransom Cemetery, John Aeby in charge.
