The Auburn Courier: Apr. 14, 1910
Mrs. S. Husselman died Saturday

Was one of the oldest and most highly respected ladies of the county.
The funeral Tuesday.
    The deceased was born in Dekalb and has always lived here.
    Senility and its attendant complications are responsible for the demise of Mrs. Samuel Husselman, which occurred at their country home four miles north of Auburn Sun. afternoon at four o’clock.
    Mrs. Husselman., who was seventy-three years of age, had been ailing for many months and at times life was despaired of.  Her condition improved and declined alternately until finally the grim reaper in its deadly sweep ushered her spirit into the eternal world.  The news of the death evoked expressions of profound sorrow among the innumerable acquaintances of the deceased.  When the spark of life became extinct the husband and four grown children were at the bedside.  The decedent had been a continuous resident of Dekalb Co. since her birth.
    The funeral services will occur Tues. forenoon from the Waterloo Lutheran church, the date being the fifty-seventh anniversary of the deceased’s marriage.  The Auburn acquaintances of the Husselman family extend their heartfelt sympathy.
