Newman, Olga (11 JUL 1882 - 25 NOV 1938)

Mrs. Olga Newman, the daughter of William and Charlotte Brussow, passed away at her home early Friday morning, November 25th, at the age of 56 years, 4 months and 13 days. She was born in Loyal Township on July 11, 1882.

On October 28, 1902 she became the wife of Walter Newman. The home was blessed with two children; Leonard, who is still at home; and Ramona, Mrs. William Ammerman who lives in Loyal. A niece, Winifred Newman, who has made her home with the family since she was two years of age, and who shared faithfully in caring for Mrs. Newman during her extended illness, also holds a cherished place as one of the family.

Besides these, and her husband, Mrs. Newman is survived by her sister, Mrs. Emily Ritchey of Troy Center, Wisconsin, and other relatives and friends.

For many years she has been a member of the Royal Neighbors. Representatives of that organization joined in bringing their tribute of love and good will.

Mrs. Newman enjoyed the unusual record of having spent her entire life in the home where she finally passed away. She was a lover of home, hospitable and kind to all.

In August, 1934, she experienced a slight stroke. The following February she experienced another more severe, and from which she did not so quickly recover. On July 6, 1935 she experienced a third stroke which left her since that time a helpless invalid. During the years since, she has the faithful care of her beloved ones. Finally, about a week before her passing, she experienced a fourth stroke which was the occasion of her death.

Funeral services were held Monday, Nov. 28th, at 1:30 P. M. from the home and 2:00 P. M. from the Methodist Church. Interment was made in the Loyal cemetery, Rev. Raymond J. Fleming officiating.

The pall bearers were Arthur Darton, Peter Schoch, Wm. Litka, Frank Schultz, Orin Trindal and Harry Voss.

The flower girls were Mrs. Peter Schoch, Mrs. Wm. Litka, Mrs. Frank Schultz, Mrs. Orin Trindal, Mrs. Edgar Vick and Mrs. Harry Voss.
