Nicholas Bausman Jr

My mom gave me another obituary; she has quite a few in her possession. There is no citation.

This is for Nicholas Bausman Jr, son of Nicholas Sr. and Mary (Casper) Bausman.  He was married to Catherine Hebenstreit.

I’m not including a newspaper image.  It’s a bit long and I didn’t feel like manipulating the image into multiple columns.

The floral offerings were many beautiful and mutely testified to the popularity and sorrow experienced by a large circle of friends in the sudden taking away of a greatly respected citizen before many knew of his serious illness. It is a warning friends we should all be prepared for coming of the Ruler that makes no mistakes. For we know not the day or hour that the summons will come to us and it behooves all to be up and doing what we can for the Master and His cause. Mr. Bausman was laid to rest in Scales Mound cemetery. Rev. Sinning conducted the burial service at the graveside. Messrs Ferd Neuschwanger, Simon Distler, George Rittweger, J.W. Baus, Joseph H.
