End Comes For Mrs. Harm H. Rust

Mrs. Harm H. Rust was born April 30, 1892, at Gratiot, Wis., and passed away at her home about 10 o'clock last Thursday evening, July 21, 1949. She attained the age of 57 years, two months and 21 days. Her maiden name was Margaret Frances Cullen.
The early part of her life was spent in Wisconsin where she was born and raised and attended school. After Mrs. Rust had finished her course of training and the required education to become a school teacher, she left her parental home and community to pursue the teaching work. In 1913 she came to Grundy county and taught in several schools. Wholeheartedly with love for the work and for the pupils she gave her best. In return, she was appreciated and her work was well spoken of by those who knew her as a teacher.
On March 14, 1923, she was united in marriage to Mr. Harm Rust. This union was blessed with 3 children. They lived their married life on the same farm. Last year they were privileged to celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. Relatives and friends of the neighborhood gave them a pleasant surprise in honor of this occasion.
The deceased has enjoyed unusually good health. Because of her physical well-being, she used her time being constantly occupied in the home and out-of-doors on the farm to take care of the needs of the family and the work to be done. But about two years ago, next October, her health began to fail, which was due to cerebral hemorrhages. Intermittent attacks would come upon her, but after each attack she would improve considerably, and would enjoy a fair measure of increased strength. On last Thursday when the last attack seized her, she became unconscious and weaker and passed away the same day.
She leaves to mourn at her passing her bereaved husband, 1 son John; two daughters: Susie and Virginia, all still at home; 4 brothers and two sisters and many other relatives and friends, all of Wisconsin. Her parents preceded her in death.
