NEWSPAPER UNKNOWN, 18 November 1940
Obituary of  MARY E. CRAMER

With the passing of Mrs. Mary CRAMER, Monday evening, at the home of her son, Ruben CRAMER, west of Haddam, marks the passing of another one
of Haddam's pioneer residents.

Several weeks ago Mrs. CRAMER suffered a fall, receiving injuries from which she failed to recover.

Her life's story follows: Mary E. DUNN was born Dec 8, 1847, in Kentucky, and departed this life Nov 18, 1940, at the home of Ruben CRAMER, near Haddam, KS, at the age of 92 years, 11 months and 20 days.

She was married to Randolph CRAMER, Feb 6, 1866. To this union were born eight children, the first born dying in infancy. She was proceeded in death
by her husband, Aug 12, 1913, at the CRAMER home in Haddam and a stepson, Jim CRAMER who died in March, 1928.

With her husband and family they moved from KY in 1876, settling on a farm southeast of Morrowville, KS. Two years later they moved to the Haddam community, where she spent the remainder of her life.

Early in life she united with the Methodist Church and remained faithful until death called her to her reward.

Left to mourn her departure are her children, Mrs. Emma NUTTER, Fairbury, NE, Mrs. Eliza COX, Haddam, Ks, Mrs. Lula SNARE, Washington, KS, George CRAMER, Lebanon, MO, Ruben CRAMER, Haddam, KS, Will CRAMER, Kansas City, MO and Mrs. Jessie BOSS of Los Angeles, CA; 14
grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 11 great, great grandchildren.

After her husband's death, she made her home with her daughters and the past few years with her son Ruben and wife.

For the past five years she has been an invalid. Another early settler, who experienced the vicissitudes of pioneer life, who helped to mould the Kansas character, has passed on to her reward.

Funeral services were conducted at the Haddam Methodist Church, Wednesday afternoon by the
Rev. Mary Ellen LUTZ.

Her grandsons and great grandsons served as
pallbearers. Interment was made in the Haddam Cemetery.
