She was one of the pioneer settlers, having come here when the country was mostly a wilderness. The funeral occurred Monday from the house, Rev. Lindenberger officiating. Interment taking place at the Ruegnitz cemetery, where a large concourse of sympathizing friends followed all that was mortal of the old lady and Pioneer.
