Calbaum, Sophia (20 JAN 1862 - 18 APR 1937)

Mrs. Sophia Calbaum passed away Sunday evening, April 18, 1937, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Walter S. Young, Genoa, Nev. She had been ill and serious over a year, very helpless but through it all was very courageous and considerate of others, not causing any unnecessary worry to any one of her troubles.

She was born in the state of New York on Ja. 20, 1862, moving from there to Clark County, and remaining there until she came to Nevada in 1925 and resided with her daughters, Mrs. Cedric Nelson, Carson City, and Mrs. Walter S. Young, Genoa, Nev. In Wisconsin, her husband, the late Henry Calbaum, who passed away in Carson in 1931, was extensively engaged in dairy farming until old age caused him to lease the property to the children and they came to Nevada for their declining years.

Mrs. Calbaum leaves the following relatives to mourn her loss: Mrs. Walter S. Young, Genoa, Nev.; Mrs. Gustave Decker, Snohomish, Wash.; Mrs. Marine Rasmussen, Otto Calbaum, all of Withee, Wis.; Rudolph Calbaum of Milwaukee; and Mrs. Cedric Nelson, Carson City, Nev., and also 15 grandchildren.

Funeral services were held in Genoa, Nev. Thursday, April 22, at 2 p.m. Rev. M.H. Luce officiated and funeral arrangements were in the hands of Kitzmeyer-Elges Co. of Carson City. Burial was made in the Genoa Cemetery.
