MRS. ROBERT ROSENBOOM
DECEMBER 10, 1925

Death came to Mrs. Robert Rosemboom Sunday (Dec.6) morning at 4:45 after an illness of two weeks.
Mrs. Rosenboom had been very ill from the beginning with a pelvic abscess which failed to respond to any treatment of the physicians, who made heroic efforts to save her life.
Funeral services were held in the Lutheran church Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock and were largely attended. Deceased was a member of the Lutheran Ladies' Aid Society, the Eastern Star Lodge, the Household Science Club and the Royal Neighbors Lodge, and members from all of these societies were in attendance.
Services were in charge of the local pastor, rev. A. Rettberg. Burial was in the Chatsworth cemetery.
Olga E. Traeger was born November 28, 1892, at Eisdorf, Saxony, Germany, and came with her parents to this country when two years of age. The family located at Meredosia, later locating on a farm near Beardstown, where she spent her childhood. In the year 1909 she took a position at the state hospital in Kankakee, which she held until September 28, 1912, when she was married to Robert Rosenboom, of Chatsworth, at Beardstown, Illinois September 28, 1912. Mr. and Mrs. Rosenboom took up their residence in Chatsworth immediately after their marriage and have made their home here ever since. Three sons were born to the union, namely: Traeger, aged 11; Kenneth, aged 8 and Glenn, aged 3.
Besides the husband and children, there survive the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Traeger, Wellston; and six sisters, Mrs. F.D. Hammer, of Arenzville; Mrs. James Harris, of Wellston, Michigan; Mrs. William McGladery, of Kankakee, Mrs. John Janssen, of Peoria; Mrs. Harold Scott, of Rock Falls, and Mrs. Irving Huston, of Virginia, Illinois.
The death of Mrs. Rosenboom was a shock to many friends and while it was expected for several days before the final summons came, expressions of regret and sorrow were heard from many persons when the new was received on the streets.
She took a great pride in her home and her family and in the social affairs of the community and her untimely death is a blow not only to the family and relatives but the community as well.
