Mrs. Rosena Richard

Mrs. Rosena Richard died August 4, 1907, at the age of seventy-one years, three months and eighteen days.

Rosena Stucky was born April 17th, 1836, in Switzerland. She came to America with her parents when a small child, and was married in Fulton county, Ohio, to Gottlieb Richard, in March 1856. They moved to Pawnee county, Kansas, in 1876, and have resided here ever since.

She was a faithful wife and a good mother. For two years she was a sufferer of the dreadful disease, cancer, but she bore her pain without complaint. She joined the Lutheran church in early life and was a faithful disciple to her Lord.

Two children have gone before. She leaves a husband, ten children and a host of friends to mourn her loss.

The funeral services were conducted Wednesday morning by Rev. W. B. Barton from the Mennonite
church, twelve miles southeast of town. The body was buried in the Larned cemetery.
