NOOK, Mrs. Augusta.
Mrs. Augusta Nook Passes Away.
Mrs. Gus Nook, a resident of Hamburg since 1919, passed away at her home on E street Saturday. She had been ill for about 3 weeks and had received treatment in the Hamburg hospital; however her improvement was satisfactory and she returned to her home during the week.
About 2 years ago she suffered serious injuries when struck by a car and while she had been able to live alone for several months, she never fully recovered from the effects of the injuries suffered. Her passing was a shock to the members of her family and to her friends, who saw her nursed back to better health, only to suffer a relapse.
Augusta Amelia, daughter of Frederick and Wilhelmina Bangs, was born near Sidney Aug. 4, 1870, and passed away Oct. 6, 1951, at the age of 81 years, 2 months and 2 days. She spent her entire life in Fremont County and made many trips to Hamburg with her parents when the roads were only trails over the prairie. In that day, the bridge across the Nishna River, near Mrs. Nook’s last (or first) home, was so frail that the wagon load of supplies for the family would cause it to dip almost to the water in the river.
She grew to womanhood in the Locust Grove community where she united with the Locust Grove Methodist church at an early age. During the time she lived in the Madison neighborhood, her membership was in the Madison church and after moving to Hamburg she transferred to the Evangelical and Reformed church.
She was united in marriage to Gustav Nook March 7, 1889, and went to housekeeping in in a log house on the farm now owned by Chas. Winkler. After a few years she and her husband moved to the farm near Madison church, which is now the home of her son, John, and family. Mr. and Mrs. Nook retired in 1919 and moved to Hamburg where she spent the remainder of her life. Her husband passed away in June -, 1949. They had a long, happy life together, celebrating their golden anniversary and their sixtieth anniversary with family parties.
Mrs. Nook was the mother of six children, three of whom have preceded her in death. Elmer died in boyhood, but Emma (Mrs. George Green) and Raymond have been gone only a few years. Her sons, John and Frank, and one daughter, Mrs. W.A. Livingston, survive her. There are five grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, other near relatives, and a wide circle of friends. She is the last of her family except for one sister-in-law.
Funeral services were held Tuesday at 2:30 at the Evangelical and Reformed church, conducted by Rev. J.H. Free---e, with burial in the Mt. Olive cemetery. A. Cambells’ Sons and --ckett of Farragut directed the service.
