SERVICES HELD WEDNESDAY MRS. CHAS. CHAUSSEE
One of Clay County's Oldest Pioneer Women Passes Away Monday
Editor's Note: The following account of the passing of Mrs. Charles Chaussee was written by F. Belle Conrow, who for many years has been intimate with the family: With the passing of Mrs. Chaussee Monday evening another of the pioneers who helped to lay the foundation for the development of the county and the state has gone to rest. Softly as a leaf falls from a tree or a tired child drops to sleep, she laid down her burdens and passed to the beyond. But with her sleeping she leaves something of the hopefulness and spirit that characterized her life.
Coming to South Dakota as a child in the earliest days of territorial development, she has been a constant resident, taking her full part of the hardships and responsibilities of the times and the place. She saw the growth of the community from a sparsely settled, treeless prairie to the present highly developed organization. She knew as a young girl the fear of marauding Indians; the repeated failures of crops and the resulting hard time; she saw the growth of school and church and social life from the most rudimentary forms. Not only did she see these things, she was a part of them, drawing from their rough emergencies the strength and courage that, combined with the natural gentleness and honesty which were among her characteristics, made her in her later life and until the end of her long and useful existence, loved by hosts of friends and neighbors and respected by the community. Sixty-six years of married life have been hers, all but the last two having been lived on the farm eat of Vermillion to which her husband took his young bride for their first home. She has been fortunate in having all but one member of her immediate family reside near her. Many of her contemporaries and most of her girlhood friends have gone before her, but ever new friends appeared to take their place, and even unto the end, life was interesting and enjoyable to her. She was essentially a home lover, caring first for the welfare of her family, but reaching out beyond this loving circle to touch with her influence the larger group outside. Hers was a long life—better yet, a useful life, a life of friendly influence that will be long remembered. Lucinda Jane Shriner, daughter of William and Patience Shriner, was born in Belmont county, near Barnesville, Ohio, October 18, 1848. Five years later she went with her parents to Bureau county, Ill., and later, in 1859, came with them to Carroll county, Iowa. Shortly after the family moved to the new territory of Dakota, locating on a farm one mile north of what is now Vermillion. Here she grew to young womanhood and on May 10, 1868, was united in marriage with Charles Chaussee, who survives her. Besides the husband, Mrs. Chaussee is survived by two sons, Fred and Wm. J. Chaussee, and three daughters, Mrs. Mary Dimick and Mrs. Edna Swisher, all of Vermillion, and Mrs. Rose Waterman, of Faulkton. She leaves also to mourn her loss 10 grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Besides these she is mourned by two brothers, Joel Shriner, of Vermillion, who has made his home with her, and Byron Shriner, of Frederick, Colo., and one sister, Mrs. Flora Randall, of Pasadena, Calif. These with many other relatives and friends are grieving today that one very near and dear has gone away. Funeral services were held at the home Wednesday afternoon, under the auspices of the Rev. W. C. Deer, and the remains were laid to rest in Bluff View cemetery. Elmore's Service was in charge of funeral direction. Vermillion Plain Talk, Vermillion, South Dakota
