Ida (Robinson) Bragg – December 1861 – June 19, 1929


Charles Bragg received a message on Tuesday morning of the death of his aunt, Ida Bragg, near Rudd Iowa.

Mrs. Bragg has been indisposed for a year or so but not bedfast all the time, but at this time she was better than usual. Her daughter had just went to her home at Albert Lea, Minnesota, and her son came in for supper and looked in through the door and said, “got supper ready mother”. She made a sound in the little room she kept her oil stove in. He called again and the same noise responded. He then went in the room and found her lying across the stove at the end where the oil can was, and the two burners going.

He picked her up, carried her in and laid her on the davenport. She explained that she would be alright soon. Her son called a doctor and phoned for his sister and she returned immediately and everything possible was done, but by this time the mother was unconscious.
She passed away on Tuesday night about midnight, from a stroke of apoplexy.

Ida Robinson Bragg was born in Ohio, and when a child came to the southern part of Iowa with her parents. Later the family located near Nora Springs, Iowa, where she grew to womanhood.

She was united in marriage to Sylvester Bragg, who preceded her in death six years ago. To this union were born two children, Edgar and Golda, now Mrs. Mickels, of Albert Lea, Minnesota.

She is also survived by her aged mother and several sisters and a brother, who reside in Oklahoma and Texas, who were unable to be here to attend the funers.

Those from Greene who attended the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bragg, Mr. and Mrs. W. a. Timblin and Luther Bragg, Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Crabtree, Mrs. Jane Bragg and Arthur Buhlis, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Shirer, Allison: John and Charles Klintob and their wives, Mason City, and a sister of the deceased, Mattie, of Shenandoah, Iowa

The funeral was held in the M. E. Church at Nora Springs. Burial in Rockgrove Cemetery, Nora Springs, beside her husband.
