GUSS - Mrs. Catharine Guss - Juniata Co. PA
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.
