Floyd Bausman Died Friday At Hospital
Floyd Bausman, who spent all of his life in this community, died last Friday at the Deaconess hospital in Marshalltown. He was taken sick nine weeks ago and was taken to the hospital for treatment. He was afflicted with high blood pressure. He improved after a short period of confinement and returned home. About two weeks ago the former trouble returned and he was taken to the hospital a second time. Everything possible that skilled surgeons at the hospital could do was done for him, but it was not enough. He would have been 46 years old on his next birthday, which with the average man is regarded as the prime of life. Until his late illness he had been in good health and took good care of the farm which he and his family occupied two miles east of Wellsburg.
Came From Large Family
Floyd was one of twelve children of the late Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Bausman, early and long time residents of Pleasant Valley township. He learned farming at home and attended his home school. He was born on July 15, 1898. He remained at the home of his parents until he was married to Miss Lydia Peters on July 19th, 1927. The couple began housekeeping on a farm two miles south of Parkersburg where they resided until they moved to the Jerry Peters farm east of Wellsburg three years ago. They have two children; Ethel, who is 16, and Minerva is eleven.
Floyd's mother died 12 years ago and his father passed away seven years later.
Surviving aside from the wife and two daughters are four brothers and four sisters. The brothers are Charles from Ackley, Bryan and Wayne, Wellsburg, and Lynn of Steamboat Rock. The sisters are Mrs. Charles Fritzel, of Klemme; Mrs. Jack Perry, Buck Grove; Mary, at home, and Mrs. Will Harms, Iowa Falls.
Funeral services were held at the home early Monday afternoon and later at the Reformed church in Wellsburg. Burial was in the cemetery adjoining the Reformed church. The services were conducted by the local pastor, Rev. Wm. Landsiedel, and there was a very large attendance.
Floyd Bausman was held in high esteem by all who knew him and his death is a real loss to the community.
