Funeral Services For Mrs. Bausman Held Last Sunday
Funeral services for Mrs. Bryan Bausman were held last Sunday afternoon. Services were held at 1:30 in the home and 2:30 at the Pleasant Valley Evangelical church. The church would not accommodate all who came to pay their last respects to the deceased. The basement and the lawn on the east side of the church were used to accommodate the large number present.
The services were in charge of Rev. Walter Cerka, pastor of the Pleasant Valley Evangelical church, assisted by Rev. H. F. Yingst of Iowa Falls.
During the service two selections were rendered by the Iowa Choirtet, composed of Max Belz, Frederick Meyer, Harvey Uhlenhopp, and Russell Kruse. Mrs. Max Belz played the Processional and the Recessional at the appropriate time.
Mrs. Bausman was borne to her last resting place by Chris Finke, Joe Janssen, Anton Terfehn, John J. Lindaman, Adolph Hartman and John Frey.
Mabel Camilla Bausman, nee Petersen, was born July 17, 1892, and passed to her eternal reward July 3, 1942, at 4:30 a.m. at the Ellsworth hospital at Iowa Falls at the age of 49 years, 11 months and 14 days.
Mrs. Bausman enjoyed a normal healthy life until suddenly Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. she was stricken with intense pain. Everything possible was done to relieve her suffering. An operation was performed for the removal of a tumor, but conditions had already developed causing her death.
Mrs. Bausman was born near Fredsville, Iowa, and later moved to New Hartford, where she grew to womanhood. She graduated from the New Hartford school and later attended the Cedar Falls Normal. She taught school 14 years.
On February 1, 1919, she was united in holy wedlock to Bryan Bausman at Waterloo, Iowa. They moved to a farm near New Hartford and lived there one year then moved to the farm where they have lived ever since. One daughter, Phyllis Maxine, was born to this union.
The deceased became a Christian early in life, and joined the home church, later transferring her church letter to the Pleasant Valley Evangelical church, where she remained an honored member until death. She was active Secretary of the Ladies' Aid, this being her second term. She was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Ashing Post No. 213.
The memory of her is fragrant. Being dead she yet lives in our hearts. Bruised by the blow just now, we yet say "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord." They rest from their labors and their works follow them.
She leaves her bereaved husband and daughter, Phyllis, her aged parents, four brothers, Clarence of Waterloo, Harry of Cedar Falls, Mark of Minneapolis, Christian of Cedar Falls, besides many other relatives and friends.
