Burge, Almira (24 JAN 1857 - 4 JAN 1927)

Mrs. Almira Burge, formerly of Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., died at her home in Muskegon, Mich., Jan. 4, 1927, at nearly 70 years of age. She had been in poor health for some time from bronchial trouble and was taken suddenly on New Years Day with bronchial pneumonia, passing away the following Tuesday.

Mrs. Burge, whose maiden name was Almira F. Bealer, was born at Meadville, Pa., Jan. 24, 1857. She came to Neillsville about 50 years ago and a short time later married Thomas Burge. He died a few years after their marriage, when their only son, Fremont, was a small child. Mrs. Burge became a traveling saleslady for the S. R. Collier co., of Fremont, Ohio, and followed this work for 25 years. About 15 years ago she went to Muskegon and purchased a rooming house, which she conducted until her death. Although in poor health she was patient and uncomplaining. Mrs. Burge was a lady of refinement and pleasant and kindly ways. During her residence here, she was a member and faithful worker in the Congregational Church.

She leaves one son, also 4 grandchildren, one brother, Wm. Bealer of Jamestown, N.Y., and one sister, Mrs. Caroline Christie of Neillsville, and a number of nieces and nephews.

The remains were brought here for burial by Mr. and Mrs. Fremont Burge. The funeral was held Saturday at the Congregational Church, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating, interment taking place in the Neillsville Cemetery by the side of her husband.
