Obituary - Almira Amelia Sherman - Anderson

Almira Amelia Sherman, born May 3, 1882 at Creston, Iowa, daughter of Alvin Henry and Rose Anna Huntsman-Sherman; died September 21, 1930 at Arapahoe, Colorado.

She grew to young womanhood in Emerson, Iowa; was graduated from highschool there in 1902, after which she taught in the Emerson school two years.

In 1907 she moved with her parents to Cheyenne County, Colorado, proved up on a homestead southeast of Arapahoe. After teaching two years in Cheyenne Wells she taught continuously in the rural school near her homestead until her marriage.

On May 2, 1917 she was united in marriaage to Clarence B. Anderson and to this union was born one child, Clarence Sherman Anderson. She leaves to mourn her loss the husband and son; her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. A.H. Sherman of Cheyenne Wells; two brothers, Cleve Sherman of Alamosa, Colorado and Llewellyn Sherman of Kansas City, Missouri; three sisters, Lula Taylor of Beatrice, Nebraska; Fay Lambert, Arapahoe, Colorado; Dora Gudgel of Cheyenne Wells, Colorado; and a host of friends and neighbors.

She readily adapted herself to all the conditions of pioneer life, meeting its hardships with a smile that brought sunshine where ever she went. She was a helper in all her community activities, giving a hand in sickness or sorrow, a loving wife and mother and a kind and thoughtful neighbor. She was almost a life-long member of the Baptist church, to which faith she kept until death, strong in her convictions of right, but generous to a fault in others. She passed peacefully away at the home of her parents, after loving hands had done all they could to relieve her suffering on September 21, 1930.

"Farewell, Dear Allie, We shall miss you,
From our broken household band.
Yet a little, we shall meet you;
In the bright, the better land."
