Bass, Waity (25 JUN 1831 - 13 JUL 1893)

Died, at her home in the village of Curtiss, Clark Co., Wis., on Thursday, July 13th, 1893, of paralysis, Mrs. Chas. Bass, mother of A. D. Bass, aged 62 years.

The deceased was born in the state of Connecticut, where she was united in marriage with Charles Bass, who survives her and mourns the loss of a loving wife. About fifteen years ago, with her husband, she moved to Florence, Mass., where they continued to reside until about one year ago, when they came to Wisconsin and settled at Curtiss, so as to make their home near that of their son.

She had been an invalid for many years, but has always borne her suffering with wonderful courage and patience. On the first of July she was prostrated by a stroke of paralysis, which culminated in her death on the 13th, as stated above. She was attended by Dr. LeSage and everything that medical skill or loving care could do was done to alleviate her suffering and prolong her life, but without avail.

The funeral was held at the house in Curtiss, at 10 o’clock A.M., on Saturday, the 15th, after which the remains were taken to the Colby Cemetery, west of this city, followed by a large concourse of friends, besides the relatives, who deeply mourned the loss of a good woman. Messrs. H. Machlett, Andrew Olson, L. Larson, Ole Christianson, R. Schoenemann and A. Arneson acted in the capacity of pallbearers. A. N. Virch officiated as general director, and the choir was composed of Misses Lela Fortune, Annie Virch and Gena Olson, assisted by A. N. Virch. Rev. D. P. Olin of Colby, officiated and delivered a fine discourse.

Many beautiful floral decorations were sent in, principal among which was a large handsome wreath from Mrs. H. Poolman.

Mrs. Bass leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, Chas. Bass, who is now far advanced in in years, and A. D. Bass and wife of Curtiss. Those who knew her best will mourn her most.
