THE WESTERN STAR, 16 July 1916
Obituary of THEODORE W.  OSMAN

Theodore W. Osman died at his home in this city shortly before 4 o'clock a.m. on last Sunday, July 11, 1915. He had been a sufferer from a complication of diseases for several months. He had not been confined to his bed a great deal of the time, however. A short time before his death he was able to be about some and was thought to be some better. On Saturday night he became worse, his heart grew weak and death resulted within a short time. He had been sitting up in bed with a chair at his back, and becoming somewhat weary of that position, his wife came from an adjoining room and assisted in changing his position. Shortly afterwards Mrs. Osman came in again and found Mr. Osman lying with his head resting on his pillow - dead. The end came as if passing into a peaceful sleep. One of the most pronounced forms of his affliction for some time before his death was a paralyzed condition of his throat, which, at times, grew alarming. He bore his sufferings patiently and almost to the end was hopeful and cheerful.

Deceased was born in White-co., Ind., on July 4, 1855. At the time of his death, his age was just one week past 60 years. On December 23, 1889, in Monticello, Ind., he was united in marriage with Miss Rosellea Hendrixon. To this union one son, Harry, aged now about 23, was born. In 1905, Mr. Osman and his family moved from Indiana to this city. On April 24, 1907, Mrs. Osman died in a Wichita hospital. On May 19, 1908, Mr. Osman was remarried, this time to Mrs. Sarah Craig, who, with Mr. Osman's son, Harry, and his two step-daughters, Lois and Pearl Craig, survive him.

Mr. Osman was a good citizen and was esteemed by all because of his uprightness of character. He had been a member of the Baptist church for many years and lived a consistent Christian life. He was employed for several years by the Farmers' Elevator Co. of this city and was
always faithful to every trust imposed upon him.

Funeral services were conducted from the Presbyterian church at 2 o'clock p.m. on Monday, the pastor, Rev. W. H. Leonard, being in charge. Every part of the service was impressive and present felt keenly the solemnity of the occasion. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery. The bereaved relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
