Nellie Strosnider

Nellie Angeline Strosnider, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Finley Strosnider, was born in Schuyler county, near Bluff City, July 15, 1879, died at the home of her parents in Astoria, July 13, 1903, aged twenty-three years, eleven months and twenty-eight days.

Nellie had been living near Macomb for some months past, but, not feeling well, came home from that place Friday, July 3, for a rest and a visit with her parents. Shortly after arriving here she became very ill and continued to fail for the nine days she was allowed to remain.

The disease which ended her life was a peculiar one, new to the profession of medicine and was called “Addison’s Disease.”

She became a member of the United Brethren church at this place about seven years ago, and although she has been away from Astoria most of the time since, has ever lived the life of a true christian.

Besides the father and mother, two brothers, Harvey of Havana, and Walter of St. Louis, and two sisters, Lilly and Maggie with many relatives and friends are left to mourn her early death. Though crushed with grief they have comfort in the thought that their loss is her eternal gain.

The funeral service was conducted by Rev. D. E. Baer, at the United Brethren church at two o’clock Monday afternoon and the remains were laid to rest in the Astoria cemetery.
