DEATH OF MRS WM BOKHOF

   Rose S Raymer, wife of Wm Bokhof, passed peacefully to the rest of the faithful at the close of the day, Sun, June 20,1920, at the home of her sister Mrs Charles Pfluke in Rock City, Illinois, after an illness of anemia, of several years duration. Mrs Bokhof has been here several weeks stopping to visit relatives on their way from a winter in Florida to her home at Atkinson, Nebr. She became too ill to resume the journey and gradually failed until the end came. She was surrounded during her last illness by husband, daughter and faithful sisters who ministered to every need with loving care. How well that she should pass from earth in the home of her girlhood, where she grew to young womanhood.

Came to Holt Co and settled on a homestead 10 miles northeast of Atkinson, where they lived 18 years. Later moving to Atkinson, where they have lived ever since.

   She was the daughter of George and Katherine Raymer, pioneer residents. In her early years she was a successful teacher. For a number of years her home has been in the west. She was converted early in life, and united with the Evangelical church and always lived the life of a true christian.

   She is survived by her husband, daughter Mrs Mabel Funk, 3 grandchildren, 2 sisters Mrs Lida Stahler, of Eaton, Colo and Mrs Lucy Pfluke of Rock City, Ill, brother Wm of Missoula, Mont and many other relatives as well as a host of friends who will mourn her loss.

   Short services were held from the home of her sister in Rock City on June 21st before starting for Atkinson.

OBITUARY

   Mrs Effa Elizabeth Fullerton, the subject of this sketch, was the daughter of Daniel Raymer and Louisa Roffler Raymer. She was born near Milford, Seward Co, Nebr on Feb 15,1876 and died in Glendora, Calif on the 27th day of March 1911.

   When about 7 years of age she came with her parents to Holt Co in 1882, where they settled upon a homestead 6 miles northeast of Atkinson. Here she lived until she grew up to womanhood, and married J W Fullerton. They were married Jan 20,1900. Taking up her residence upon Mr Fullerton's farm, 3 and miles north of town, she lived there until about a month ago, when they went to California, intending to spend the season there. 2 children were born to Mr and Mrs Fullerton, Leslie and Elda, who are now left to the care of other hands than those of the gentle mother.

   On the 27th day of last month, Mrs Fullerton was taken ill with acute pneumonia. The wires flashed the news to her friends here, but the doctors there were hopeful of her recovery.

   The news of her death came as a shock to the community that had known her so long. She died April 2,1911. (that's the way the paper had it)

   In her life she was beautiful and respected by all who knew her. She was a member of the M E Church, and a consistant Christian. While her loss will fall heavily upon the community, she will be the most sorely missed by her husband, mother and children. Besides these she leaves to mourn her early death, 2 brothers GL and Dwight, and 2 sisters Bridie and Mrs Daisy Allen. Her many friends and near relatives join in the sorrow.

   The funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church on Sat last, April 8 and she was layed to rest in the Woodlawn Cem.

Wisdom, Susannah S
March 31,1887 The Frontier

   On last Thursday, March 24, Mrs Susannah G Wisdom, passed to her heavenly home at her residence in O'Neill. After a long illness of inflammatory rheumatism. The funeral services were conducted by Rev D C Winship in the Methodist Church, Friday afternoon.

   Mrs Wisdom was born in Fulton Co, Illinois Feb 2,1841, and was therefore 36 years of age at her death. She was converted and joined the Baptist church at 17 years of age and was married to Andrew S Wisdom Jan 5,1861. 2 years later he was killed in battle, while bearing a gun for his country. Ever since Mrs Wisdom remained a widow. And with her only daughter, Belle, came to this country little over 2 years ago. For over a year past she has been a great sufferer until relieved as above. She leaves 4 sisters, who live in eastern states and her daughter to mourn her early and sad demise. But they are comforted int eh assurance that Jesus is very near them at all times.

   Miss Belle the daughter of Mrs Wisdom is clerking in Judge Gillespie's office and expects to remain there permanently we understand.
