Bandelow, Nellie May (24 April 1878 - 5 July 1926)

Mrs. Geo. Bandelow passed away at her home south of Neillsville about 9 o’clock Monday forenoon, July 5, after months of intense suffering.

Nellie May Humes was born at Lebanon, Waupaca County, April 24, 1878 and at the time of her death was 48 years, 2 months and 19 days old. She was left an orphan at 10 years of age, and went to live with her aunt, Mrs. Janet Nims now of Portland, Oregon. She attended New London high school, and later learned the dressmaking trade in Waupaca following that work there for a time and then coming to Neillsville in February 1900, to work at her trade.

On Dec. 26, 1900 she was married to Geo. Bandelow and went to live on their farm in Pine Valley tow miles south of the city, which has been her home ever since. Her sickness began in September 1924. She underwent an operation at Marshfield toward the end of that year, and was again operated on at Eau Claire in July , 19256. All that the best medical skill and treatment could do for he was done, but of little avail. For months past her relatives and friends have watched over her and did all that was possible to relieve her suffering.

Mrs. Bandelow was a woman of fine Christian character. For many years she was a faithful member of the Methodist church, and active worker in all its activities, a helpful member of the W. C. T. U. and ever ready to give her time and energy in assisting any good cause. Her home and family were cared for with loving service, and neighbors and friends ever found her ready to help in making the community happier or to give help and consolation in times of sickness and sorrow. In every way her work in life was well faithfully done.

She leaves to mourn her death her husband and two sons, Leland and Marlin, young men at home; one sister, Mrs. Wm. Hansen of Chippewa Falls; a half-sister, Mrs. Chas. Rohlof, of New London and a half-brother, Chester Humes of Illiad, Montana.

The funeral was held this Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m., from the home and at 2:00 at the M. E. Church Rev. S. J. Lambright officiating.
