Patient Dies At County Farm
County Had Given Her Home for 31 Years
Mrs. Barbara Boursma died at the Grundy county farm yesterday morning from old age. She has been ailing for several months. She was born in Germany in 1843 and had lived in this country about forty years. She came to the county farm thirty-one years ago and that has been her home ever since. She survived all other county charges who were ever at the county farm.
The deceased will be buried Friday in the Christian Reformed cemetery in German township. Her brother, Andrew Roos from Hull, Iowa, is here and he is directing arrangements for the funeral.
