Obituary - Emma Walsman

Miss Emma Walsman died Sunday morning at the home of her sister, Mrs. John Herrick. Miss Walsman was a great sufferer from that dreaded disease, consumption. Although she had been confined to the house since her stay here, she won many friends by her cheerful and lovable disposition. She was thirty-three years of age and leaves six brothers and three sisters to mourn her death. After a prayer at the house Wednesday morning the remains were taken on the morning train to Naumburg, where the funeral will be held from the German Lutheran church; interment in Sunnyside cemetery, near Naumburg.
