Lincoln Republican April 20, 1911.
---Early Tuesday morning, when all nature is beautiful, when the birds sang sweetly, and the sun in its early splendor looked down upon so many happy homes and hearts, the angel of death entered the home of Judge ARTMAN and quietly took away the life of his beloved wife. Years of pain and suffering had, perhaps, made the visit of the death angel more welcome to the patient than would have been the case under any other circumstances. For fifteen long years Mrs. ARTMAN has been a sufferer from rheumatism and for the past seven or eight years here the suffering was almost unbearable. Through it all she was patient and uncomplaining and people outside of her immediate family knew little of the pain that she daily endured. Since December she has been confined to her home and much of the time to her bed. She was a member of the Church of Christ and a regular attendant at the services whenever her physical condition would allow her to do so, and when at last this pleasure was denied her she felt it keenly.
Although her condition had been such that her death was daily and hourly expected, still of the pain of parting with the loved one, is none the less intense. We are prone to give up those we hold most dear but in the midst of sorrow and loneliness the relatives will surely find relief in the thought that she is at peace, at rest, that the tired pain-racked body will suffer no more. Willing hands did all that could be done to relieve her sufferings, and now that she is gone they will have the satisfaction of knowing that she never lacked for care. She had nothing to fear in crossing the dark valley.
Minnie M. ADAMSON was born Mary 27, 1867, in Greene County, Pennsylvania. She came to Lincoln with her parents in 1885. Ten years later, May 27, 1895, she was united in marriage to Arthur ARTMAN, who is left to mourn her death. She leaves beside her husband, two sisters, Mrs. Anna MARSH, of Sequin, Kansas, and Mrs. H. R. STRAWN, of Lincoln, Kansas, and three brothers, Ephraim, Smith and Roy, all of this place.
The funeral services were held at the Church of Christ, Wednesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. STINSON and the body was laid to rest in Lincoln Cemetery.
