Rossman, Anna (10 MAR 1846 - 3 MAY 1921)

Anna Russler Rossman was born in Bavaria, Germany March 10, 1846. She came to America with her parents when seven years of age and lived at St. Louis, Mo., where she was united in marriage to Paul Rossman on April 12, 1865. Eight children were born to this union, of which one died in infancy.

Her husband died at Greenwood, Clark County, Wis., Jan. 24, 1918, after which she went to Bemidji, Minn. to live with her daughter, Mrs. George Cochran, and where she died May 3, 1921.

The following children survive her: Wm. H. and Paul R. of Greenwood; Alfred of Kalispell, Mont.; Lida Cochran of Bemidji, Minn.; Nekla Nutting of Brookings, Ore. and Olga Darton of Loyal, Wis. She is also survived by 24 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Rossman was a woman of sterling worth, a devoted wife and loving mother. In this community where she lived for so many years the mention of her name will bring back fond recollections of her.

The body was brought to Greenwood for burial, funeral services being held Friday afternoon and interment was made in the Greenwood Cemetery.

Relatives present for the funeral from out of town were Mrs. George Cochran of Bemidji, Minn. and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Darton and son of Loyal.
