The sudden death of Mrs. C.H. Bush, at her residence on South Main Street, Sunday night at 10 o'clock was a shock to the community.
She attended church in the morning and was apparently in the best of health.
Late in the afternoon she was taken ill and died at 10 o'clock of internal hemorrhage. Mrs. Bush was the daughter of Mr. R.C. Gary and the mother of three lovely children.
She had long occupied a prominent place in society and was universally beloved. Her sudden death cast a shadow of gloom over a bereaved household and marks with grief the hearts of a large circle of friends.
Her funeral was preached at the baptist church Monday afternoon by Rev. J.N. Prestridge, the interment taking place at the city cemetery. Her kindness, love and charity together with the other noble traits of he rlife won for her a place in the hearts of our people and her death is sincerely regretted by all who knew her. To the motherless children, loving husband, grieving relatives and friends we can only say that "God moves in a mysterious way," but Providence orders all things well.

In Memory of Our Daughter, Ronia Bush, And Rozell Jain Bush.  ---  On January 18th, 1908, the Lord called for Rozelle Jane , and on June 22, 1908, there was a happy meeting on the other shore with mother and her little babe. I know she must have been happy when she reached that other shore and there met Jesus and her sweet darling babe and was relieved of her suffering on this earth. Ronia's life was short on this earth, being only thirty-two years old. She professed faith in Christ several years ago and joined the Buffalo Lick church, and was still a member of that church when she died, though she had lived in Lyon county for eighteen months. She was a dear lover of Sunday school and good singing. Oh, how we miss her gentle voice in the church and in the home. It seems to me I can almost see her gentle form as she sat in the home and sang, but I feel so thankful to the Lord that our loss is her gain. While our hearts are all broken with grief and sorrow, we sorrow not as th!
ose that have no hope, for after awhile I expect to meet Ronia again, and the sweet little babe that was so precious to me and her grandmother. When I am through with sorrows and disappointments of this life, and when my Lord calls me, may he help me to say, "Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death, I will fear no evil: Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me."  Though six months have passed away, I still grieve and sigh for Ronia's sweet presence, as I feel so lonely without her. Amoss and Willey have passed on before, Oh, how we miss them in the home. Death has called away our children.  Ben P. Mitchell
