Bradbury, Lola Esther #2 (12 JUL 1873 - 27 APR 1943)

Lola Esther Beatrix Rounseville was born at Sheboygan Falls on July 12, 1873, the daughter of Nancy Ann and Samuel Rounseville. She was reared at Sheboygan Falls, after which she taught school for several terms.

She was united in marriage with Frank Bradbury at Valentine, Nebr. After residing in Nebraska for many years, they came 14 years ago to a Clark county farm, where she has since resided.

She passed away at the Nyle Benedict home at York Center on Apr. 27, 1943, at the age of 69 years, nine months and 15 days.

She was preceded in death by her husband, an infant son and a daughter, Inez Amy. She is survived by one brother, Roscoe A. Rounseville, of DeSmet, S.D., who is the last of the family of nine sisters and brothers; two daughters, Mrs. Nyle Benedict of Neillsville and Mrs. A. Glenn Miller of Bidle, Mont., one son, Miles L. Bradbury, of West Chicago, Ill., and five grandchildren.

Mrs. Bradbury was a lover of children and flowers, a loyal American and an ardent reader, deeply interested in politics and current events. She was an invalid from arthritis for the past six years, and her many friends brightened her fading years with gifts of beautiful flowers and reading material and their companionship, for which she constantly expressed her deep and sincere appreciation.

Funeral rites were held at the York Center church at 2 p.m. last Thursday, with the Rev. George Longenecker of Neillsville officiating. The pallbearers were Roy Lawrence, Ed Voight, Jesse Mortimer, William Benedict, Emil Korth and Carl Sischo. Interment was made at the York Center cemetery.

Three hymns, "Rock of Ages," "In the Sweet Bye and Bye" and "Life’s Railway to Heaven" were sung by Mrs. Jesse Mortimer, Mrs. Bert Walker, Merton Davis and James Young.

We extend our sympathy to the relatives. York Center Cor.
