Rusch, Alma May (12 MAY 1890 - 1 MAR 1933)

Mrs. Louis Rusch, age 42 years, 9 months and 19 days, died at her home in the village of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) Wednesday evening at 8:40, March 1. The illness to which she succumbed was of several months duration. A large part of which was spent at hospital at Rochester, Minn., and Madison.

Alma May Flynn was born near Loyal, Clark Co., Wis., May 12, 1890, in which vicinity she spent most of her life with her parents. In later years she came to Owen, making her home with her twin sister, Mrs. James Harper.

On May 27, 1919, she was united in marriage to Louis E. Rusch of Owen, Wis. To them two sons were born, Shirley, age 12, and Walter, age 8, who with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Flynn, and one brother, Roy, and two sisters, Mrs. James Harper and Mrs. Theodore Buker, all of Owen, survive her.

None but those who have sat in the shadow of a great bereavement can justly weight such a sorrow as this. Those who have gone down into the valley of suffering and stood for months by the side of a loved one, as hope after hope dropped away as the petals fall from a fading flower, know that such anguish cannot find solace in the tenderest words. She who has gone forth could not be supported on her solitary path by any earthly friend. The devotion of the family which was given sweetly, tenderly to this precious invalid, whose heroic devotion never faltered, could not detain her by the clasp of earthly love; but after the last word had been spoken the last sign of recognition was gone, a look of peace settled on her face which proclaimed victory, and we knew she was resting on a mighty arm.

Funeral services by Rev. Wendling were held at the Lutheran Church at 2:00, Saturday afternoon, March 4, and the remains were laid to rest in the Riverside Cemetery.
