Waterman, Mattie (August 23, 1857-October 18, 1940 )

Funeral rites were conducted Sunday afternoon at 1 o’clock at Immanuel Evangelical Church for Mrs. Frank Waterman, 83, who died at the home of her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Waterman, Richland Center.

The Rev. H. Otho Blackburn, Mosinee, had charge of the services, and burial was made in Yolo cemetery.

Mrs. Waterman, nee Mattie Austin, daughter of James and Elizabeth Austin, was born in Milford, Jefferson County, August. 23, 1857.

Before her marriage to Frank Waterman on March 20, 1878, at Neillsville, Mrs. Waterman was a rural school teacher and taught in District No. 2, Town of Fremont.

For several years after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Waterman lived at Neillsville and Marshfield, and then purchased a farm just west of the Village of Chili, where they resided for many years before retiring and moving to Chili. The past few years were spent with their children, especially with their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Clark Waterman, Mosinee.

She is survived by her husband; one daughter, Mrs. Lottie Gibson, Abbotsford; four sons, Clark of Mosinee, Frank of Minneapolis, the Rev. Jay Waterman of Richland Center; 32 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and two sisters.

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lindow sang "Jesus Lover of My Soul," "I’ll be Waiting Over There," and "The Blessed Savior Will be Waiting There for Me," during the funeral services.

Pallbearers were Anton Hogensen, Glenn Snow, Herman Montag, Theodore Harriman, Oscar Franke, and George Selk, all of (remaining info was cut off).

Jesus Lover of My Soul

Jesus, Lover of my soul,
Jesus, I will never let you go
You’ve taken me from the miry clay
You've set my feet upon the Rock, and now i know

I love you, I need you,
Though my world may fall, I’ll never let you go
My Saviour, my closest friend,
I will worship you until the very end

I’ll be Waiting Over There

O think of the home over there,
By the side of the river of light,
Where the saints, all immortal and fair,
Are robed in their garments of light.
Over there, over there,
O think of the home over there,
Over there, over there,
O think of the home over there.

O think of the friends over there,
Who before us the journey have trod,
Of the songs that they breathe on the air,
In their home in the palace of God.
Over there, over there,
O think of the friends over there,
Over there, over there,
O think of the friends over there.

My Savior is now over there,
There my kindred and friends are at rest,
Then away from my sorrow and care,
Let me fly to the land of the blest.
Over there, over there,
My Savior is now over there,
Over there, over there,
My Savior is now over there.

I’ll soon be at home over there,
For the end of my journey I see;
Many dear to my heart, over there,
Are watching and waiting for me.
Over there, over there,
I’ll soon be at home over there,
Over there, over there,
I’ll soon be at home over there.
