Chamness, Susie (22 JAN 1866 - 2 FEB 1933)

Wednesday we received the sad news of the death of a former popular and highly respected Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.) woman, Mrs. Susie Chamness. Mr. and Mrs. Chamness came here about 38 years ago and erected the building now owned by Mrs. C. Miller, where Mr. Chamness conducted a jewelry shop and Mrs. Chamness operated a millinery shop. They left here some 20 odd years ago.

Miss Susie Thompson, daughter of Dr. John and Mrs. Celia Lamb Thompson, was born at Ironton, Wis., on Jan. 22, 1866, and died Feb. 2, 1933, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Marjorie Mortimer, at Valton, Wis., her age being 67 years and 11 days.

On Sept. 9, 1894, she was united in marriage to William D. Chamness and to this union five children were born, two dying in infancy.

Three daughters are left to mourn her loss: Mrs. Marjorie Mortimer of Valton, Mrs. Geneva Thompson and Theodora Hackett, both of Madison. She also leaves seven grandchildren, besides numerous other relatives and friends.

Interment was made in the Valton Cemetery.

Mrs. Chamness was a quiet unassuming lady, very intent upon religious matters and a worker in the Little White Church.

We join with the many old time friends in Dorchester country in extending sympathy to the bereaved ones in the loss of a wonderful mother.
