Miss Neva Ruminer, 84, whose gentle,
sympathetic interest in others, a fondness of children and a devout Christian
faith had endeared her to the Mt.Vernon community, passed on at her home at 432 Mulberry street at Saturday (25 May 1957).
She had an active career in business in Mt.Vernon prior to her retirement. She was a
bookkeeper employed consecutively by the Edwin Wade Insurance Agency, the Mt.
Vernon Light & Power co., and for many years the Home Mill & Grain Co.
Miss Ruminer was a life-long Posey
county resident of pioneer heritage. Her parents were John Ruminer and Gelania Williams Ruminer, of Marrstownship, where the late deceased was born.
She and her family had occupied the residence of 432 Mulberry street for 65 years.
She was one of the original members of the present Mt. Vernon
Christian Science Society, the second reader of the church for a number of
years and until a year ago its treasurer. Her other affiliations were
with General Thomas Posey chapter of Daughters of American Revolution and the
Mt. Vernon Coterie, which her sister, Mrs. Walter W. French, organized.
