GUSS - Mrs. Catharine Guss - Juniata Co. PA
IN MEMORIAM
Mrs. Catharine Guss whose death was briefly noted in our last issue was a daughter of the late Samuel and Nancy Seiber. The aged mother of the deceased is living and if she survives until next July will be 89 years of age. She was married to Uriah Guss, January 9th, 1843, and this union was blest with fourteen children, namely, Malinda Showers, of Milford Township; Mollie Hench, of Patterson; Samuel S., of Port Royal; Abram, of Mifflin County; David W., of Port Royal; Joseph L., of Goehner, Seward County, Nebraska; George W., of Patterson; Nancy C. Ritzman, of Port Royal; U. C. Ulysses, Butler county, Nebraska; Sadie Wharton, of Spruce Hill township; Clara Hittle, of Port Royal; and Charles M., of Milford township, all of whom were present at the funeral to pay the last sad tribute of respect to the memory of an affectionate mother, and who now rise up and call her blessed. On the 22nd day of February 1879, her husband was instantly killed by a large limb of a tree, which he had cut down, striking him in the back before he could get beyond the reach of its branched. In early life Mrs. Guss gave her heart to God and her name to the Lutheran church, of which she remained a consistent and devoted member until her Master said, "it is enough, come up higher." She recommended the religion she professed by an upright walk and chaste conversation. In her last illness she was most tenderly cared for by her daughter, Mrs. Cyrus Hench, of Patterson, at whose home she departed this life April 9, 1891, of disease of the liver, aged 67 years. The funeral took place on Monday, April 13th, and the solemn and impressive services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. A. H. Spangler, who spoke in terms of the highest praise of the true worth of this elect Christian lady. Her remains were laid to rest by the side of her husband in the Licking Creek Lutheran cemetery.
