Susanna Neuman

Susanna Martha, wife of W. C. Neuman, near this place, died on Sunday morning last after a lingering illness of some five months. All was done for her that could be done. Her age was thirty-three years, ten months and fourteen days. Her sickness began with pneumonia, developing into a complication of diseases. She was glad to receive the services of different ministers who visited her, and was much comforted when prayer was offered in her behalf. She was prepared to die and wished hourly that the time of her departure was at hand. On Monday morning at ten o'clock her funeral took place from her late residence. The service at the house was led by Rev. Geo. P. Hartzell. Rev. John Baker spoke words of comfort to the bereaved household, dwelling on the words, "It is better to go to the house of mourning than the house of feasting." He concluded the service with prayer. At the Presbyterian church the sermon was preached, based on gospel according to St. Luke 12:40 by Rev. Geo. P. Hartzell, pastor of the Reformed church; Elder D. E. Hughes offered prayer. A large audience was present to pay a last tribute of love and respect to a departed friend and neighbor. After leave taking the remains were interred in the cemetery, where they await the resurrection day.

The husband of the departed requests the writer for him to express his heartfelt thanks to the members of the several churches of Astoria and others, for the sympathy shown and assistance rendered during the time of affliction and in the time of bereavement, and in arranging for the conducting of the funeral of his departed wife. — G. P. H.
