Obituary for Ida Jane Goodfellow
Ida Jane Goodfellow Posson passed away at the Memorial
Hospital at Seward, Nebraska, July 14, 1956, age 83 years, 3 months and 3
days. She was born near Papineau, Illinois on April the 11th, 1873.
On March the 23rd, 1892, she was united in marriage at
Kankakee, Illinois to Alexander Charles Posson. To this union were born
five children, three daughters and two sons.
The greater part of her life has been spent in Nebraska,
having moved to Ulysses in 1938. She united with the Methodist Church
when quite a young woman and remained a true and faithful member until the
hour when her Lord called her.
To mourn her departure, she leaves her five children:
Ruby M. Rowell of Casper, Wyoming
Edna J. Henninger of Denver, Colorado
Edward R. Posson of Omaha, Nebraska
Merle S. Posson of Kansas City, Missouri
Wilma G. Young of Denver, Colorado
Also three grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, nieces
and nephews and a host of sorrowing friends.
We'll mourn for the death of a woman good and true in
every capacity, in which she was tried and found to be worthy. There
comes a time to us all when we must say farewell as we look for the last
time into the faces of those who are near and dear to us. Human life is a
mystery and it ends in the other mystery, which we call death.
