In 1888 they went to McCook, Nebraska, seeking a home in the west. Here they resided until 1894, when they moved to the vicinity of Clearfield, which town Mrs. Voss has always considered her home since, although increasing years and ill health necessitated living with the children. Nine children were born to this union,death claiming three of them, Melvin in childhood, Mrs. Nettie Speer September 21, 1926 and Mrs. Maude Perkins March 6, 1933. She became a Christian in early life and united with Ingleside Methodist church in Chicago, later uniting with the Nazarene church. She was always devoted to the church and to her God. Her neighbors and friends are left an influence of kindness and unselfishness. For the past years she has made her home with her daughter Ethel Bye; near Creston. For eighteen months she has been confined to her bed and prayed daily that her Heavenly Father would call her Home. She leaves to mourn her going, her husband, four daughters, Mrs. Ethel Bye and Mrs. Lela Hunt of Creston,.
