The Herald
Iowa Park, Wichita, TX
(about) August 20, 1901

Mrs. M.S. Vanduson, the venerable mother of Mrs. A.H. Johnson, died in this city last Tuesday [20 Aug 1901] of Paralysis. She was in her 67th year at the time of her death. The deceased was opening a large gate on the Johnson farm near Iowa Park some six months ago, and the wind blew it violently against her arm, hurting it very badly. This hurt grew worse and the limb finally became paralyzed. The paralysis gradually extended over her left side, at last causing her death. The funeral took place from the Christian
Church yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. E.S. Bledsoe preaching the funeral sermon. The remains were interred in the city cemetery and were followed to their final resting place by many sorrowing and sympathizing friends. The deceased leaves a husband and six children to mourn her loss. Of the latter, one of these, Mrs. Johnson, lives here, one in South Dakota, two in Iowa and two in Illinois. Mrs. Vanduson was a good woman. She was a true and loving wife, a devoted mother and a staunch and loyal friend and
neighbor. Years ago she made a profession of the Christian religion and united with the Christian church. She died in the faith she had espoused while living and has gone home to her reward. The HERALD extends to the bereaved husband and children the sympathy of our people in their sad time.

[transcribers note:
At the time of her death Eliza Nears Van Dusen was visiting her daughter Luthera Van Dusen Johnson in Texas. Eliza's home for many years was Aureola (Marble Rock) in Floyd Co. Iowa.
