Mrs. Brewster, 98 Dies at Home of Son; Lived Here

Funeral Services at Bailey Home Thursday; Burial at Alta Vista, Iowa

Grandma Brewster, who has for the last 10 years made her home with her grand-daughter Mrs. W. H. Bailey, South Second street, died at the home of her son J. M. Brewster, at Herman, Neb., Monday.

Short funeral services will be held at the Bailey home, South Second street, Thursday morning.  Burial will be at Alta Vista, where her husband, Milo Brewster is buried.

Mrs. Brewster was born at New Brunswick, Canada, March 26, 1835, and came to Boston with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Doran, when she was 13 years old.  At that time the trend was to go west and get a farm and they migrated to Illinois in a covered wagon and settled in Illinois on a farm where they lived several years.

It was while they lived in Illinois that she married Milo Brewster and then started west again to seek their new home, having lived in Kansas, Missouri, and finally took up a homestead in South Dakota.

Mrs. Brewster had a very keen mind to her death and could relate experiences since her childhood and was endeared to all who knew her.  She has several great grandchildren and many grandchildren, all of whom have during her lifetime received something she had made for them as she was an artist with the needle.  She was always alert and never has seen much sickness and was of the sturdy generation who believed in home living and substantial foods to which she attributed her long life.

Grandma Brewster was a student of her Bible and was reared in a Methodist home and took keen interest in all things pertaining to the good of mankind.
