Obituary of Mrs. T. J. Putt
Therissa Jane Flemming was born in Illinois Jan. 28, 1861 and died in Seymour, Ia., April 14, 1909, aged 48 years, 2 months and 16 days. The family removed from Ills. to Missouri, and at the tender age of 8 years, she was left motherless. From Missouri they removed to Gainsville, Texas where she was married to M. E. Putt, Dec 20, 1877. From Gainsville, this newly wedded couple took up their residence in Kans.; for a brief sojourn during the summer of 1880 moved to Ind. Ty. Where they remained until 1885, and then returned to Kan. Aug. 23rd, 1901. They came to Seymour, Ia. Where they remained until 1906 when the mother went to Goodland, Kans., to make her home with her son. She was the mother of four sons and one daughter all of whom survive her. J. M. and E. H. Putt are residents of Goodland and Sharon Springs, Kans., respectively, Geo. R. is a resident of Sugar City, Colo., and Thomas O. is at present living at Green Springs, Wyo., Mrs. Asa Morrison the only daughter is a resident of Seymour. When the children were all small, she found herself alone with the support of her little ones restling upon her frail shoulders and no mother probably ever made a more heroic struggle to keep the family together. All that love, courage and heroism could do was put into that heroic struggle. During their residence in Texas she gave her heart to God and was baptized in the Red River. The majority of her years were spent within the fold of the Methodist Denomination and at one time was a member of the local church. She has been afflicted for a number of years and six weeks ago came to Seymour for medical treatment. All that medical science and love could do, could not stay the hand of death. Her faith waved not and frequently she expressed her hope in Him whom she had not seen but loved. Funeral services were held at the M. E. Church Sunday April 18, at 3 p.m., conducted by Rev. A. B. Whitmer and assisted by Rev. Clemens. Interment in Southlawn. She leaves a wide circle of friends besides her loved ones to mourn her departure.
