Sarah Brush

"Death was

Entirely Unexpected"


Mrs. A. P. Brush Passed Away After A Few Hours Illness

and News of Death Came as Blow to Friends, Was an Old

and Highly Respected Resident of Auburn.


Mrs. Anderson P. Brush died at her home in this city,

at 3:15 o'clock Tuesday morning. Mrs. Brush had been in

her usual good heath, but became ill about midnight.

Her condition appeared to be very serious and a physician

was summoned and Mrs. Brush was found to be suffering

from what appeared to be a malignant form of croup.

Despite every effort to alleviate her condition she

continued to grow worse and passed away three hours later.


The news of her death came as a very great surprise to her

friends and drew forth expressions of the most profound

regret. Most of her life had been spent in this immediate

vicinity and she had many friends who felt that in her

passing they had suffered a personal loss.


Sarah Ann Saulcey was born in London precinct, where she

grew to young womanhood and in 1886 was united in

marriage to Anderson P. Brush. Thee children were born

to them, but two died in infancy, the surviving son being,

Arthur Brush of this city. She is also survived by one

brother, George Saulcey, of Lincoln, and one sister,

Mrs. Victoria Davis, who lives on a farm east of Auburn.


Mrs. Anderson was a woman who lived a quiet and

unostentatious life, but who was at the same time one

who exerted a strong influence through her strength

of character and her innovation to the highest ideals

of womanhood. These traits of character had won her the

love and respect of all who knew her and many have been

saddened by her death. The bereaved husband and son

have the sympathy of all these friends.


The funeral was held from the family home at 2:00 o'clock

yesterday afternoon and was attended by a large number

of friends at the conclusion of the services, which were

conducted by Reverend McCullough, the remains were
