Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Rosella Missouri HURSMAN

A family note said:

"She raised 5 children, and when her daughter Euncie died she took her granddaughter Mildred to raise. She cleaned other people's houses and did laundry to keep food on the table. she never showed any affection for any one, she never hugged or kissed any of her children or grandchild. Rose felt that if she fed and clothed them and put a roof over their heads, that she was showing her lover. She didn't realize that they needed her to say 'well done or I love you' or give them a hug once in a while. Rose had lots of friends, even though the only place she went was to church and to the cemetery to maintain the graves."

The funeral was held at 2 PM on a Monday at the Parker-Hunsaker Chapel with Rev AM James officating. Pallbearers were Robert Ozmont, Otto Newman, Howard Kingore, Thomas Wallace, Henry Blake, and Ted Copher. The body lay in state at the home until 1 when it was removed to the Chapel.

She was buried next to Levi and Sydney, the grave marked by a small flat stone.
