Mrs. Geo. W. Stouffer Obituary

The following is an obituary of Mrs. George W. Stouffer, whose death we chronicled last week.

Viola Maud Tredway was born in Ohio, August 1, 1859 (correction 1858). At ten years of age she moved with her parents to Marshall County, Iowa. In January 1878 she was married to Miles M. Kennedy, who preceded her in death five years ago. In 1883 she, with her husband and two children, moved to Plymouth County Iowa. She made her home in and near Seney until the fall of 1919, except three years in the early 90's, when she resided in Cedar Rapids, Neb. In October she moved to Ireton, Iowa, where she resided until October 1923 at which time she was married to Geo. W. Stouffer of Merna, Nebr.

She passed away Tuesday, June 3, 1924, at the Wilson hospital, Broken Bow, Nebr. Her last illness, which was the culmination of Bright's disease, from which she had suffered for over fifteen years, was alleviated in every way possible by loving care. Her husband, Geo. W. Stouffer, and her daughter, Mrs. J.W. Bushby, were constantly at her bedside the last days of her illness, and received strength and comfort from her resignation and loving trust in her Master's will.

Besides her husband and children at Merna, Nebr., she leaves to mourn her death a daughter, Mrs. J. W. Bushby, of Ireton, Iowa, a son, C.A. Kennedy, of Riverside, Calif.; seven grand children; her aged father, four brothers and three sisters; also a host of other relatives and friends.
