Van Dusen, Emiline F. (1832 - 11 NOV 1900)
Died at Prentice, Wisconsin, on Sunday evening Nov. 11, 1900, Mrs. Emiline F. Van Dusen, aged 68 years, wife of O. D. Van Dusen of Prentice, formerly of Dorchester, Clark County, Wis. Besides the husband, one son and five daughters survive her; Grant O. Van Dusen and Miss Leona Van Dusen, Mrs. Charles I. Gale of Prentice, Wis., Mrs. Horace Fishback, Mrs. G. A. Mathews of Brookings, S. D. and Mrs. F. D. Arnold of Dorchester, Wis.
Services were held at the home in Prentice on Tuesday forenoon, the remains leaving on the noon train south, accompanied by the husband and son Grant and daughter Leona, for Marcellon, Wis., where burial occurred on Wednesday, Nov. the 14th.
Mrs. Van Dusen was well known in Dorchester, being at one time a resident here. A woman of sterling character, true to her God, a true and devoted wife and mother, a never ending and never ceasing advocator of all that was pure and noble in life. Her last sickness of several months was passed in her home at Prentice surrounded by husband, children and friends who, with unceasing care and loving hands did all in their power for her which was a period of most divine patience and resignations in her suffering and when death came, quietly and peacefully, it found her ready, and but marks the passing from earthly to eternal life of a beautiful, unselfish, and Christian life, glorified and returned to Him who gave it.
