Elizabeth Moses was born July 23, 1879, in Chippewa Falls, one of nine children. She was united in marriage in June, 1901, to Ernest F. Kuehnast in Chippewa Falls and came as a bride to Abbotsford where her husband was conductor for the Soo Line. To this union seven children were born, all of whom survive their mother.

A number of years ago, Mrs. Kuehnast underwent a thyroid operation and then a vocal chord operation, after which she was never in really good health. On Tuesday she seemed worse and at 10:15 at night died peacefully in her sleep of embolism.
