22 March 1962
The daughter of John Frederick and Eva Katherine Steinert (nee Dumler) was born January 22, 1886 in south Russell County, Kansas. She departed this life on March 22, 1962 at the City Hospital, Russell Kansas. Her age was 76 years and 2 months.

On February 7, 1886 she was baptized in the Lutheran faith by the Rev. A. F. Augustine. Later, after become of age she was confirmed in the Iowa Synod Lutheran Church at Milberger, Kansas by the Rev. J. G. F. Kleinhans. She retained her faith in her church and was a member of her church at the time of her death.

Katie (Steinert) Nuss spent her girlhood and most of her adult life on the farm home of her parents and later with her husband John Jacob Nuss, with whom she was united in marriage in 1905, by the Rev. Heinze. There were seven children born to this marriage, three of whom preceded her in death. On January 28, 1951, her husband preceded her in death and she made her home with her children for some time. Later she moved to the city of Russell, and about three years ago, when her health became such that she needed medical and nursing care she became a patient at the Russell Rest Home. During the past year she had been admitted as a patient at the Russell Hospital several times and it was at the Hospital, on March 22 (Thursday) that she quietly and peacefully passed away.
