Anna Christiana (Rush) Sohns Baldwin

The Wilmore News, March 15, 1929.


Mrs. Anna Baldwin was found dead in her home Thursday morning by Mrs. Redfield, her neighbor who called early to see how Mrs. Baldwin was feeling. Wednesday Mrs. Baldwin had suffered an attack of indigestion but had seemingly recovered sufficiently to stay alone as was her custom. Her death occurred sometime during the night. She was found lying on the floor. Funeral services will be delayed until her son who resides in Idaho can be reached.

The Wilmore News, March 22, 1929.


Anna Christiana Rush was born in Germany on Christmas day 1848 and departed this life in Wilmore on March 14, 1929, aged slightly more than four score years.

Arriving in America in young womanhood she first made her home at St. Louis. Later she came to Kansas and for several years lived at Junction City. In October 1900, she moved to Coldwater and remained there until about fifteen years ago when she came to Wilmore where she resided until her death.

For a long number of years the deceased has been a member of the Christian Church and was true to her faith until death. She is survived by her son, Henry R. Sohns of Pocatello, Idaho. Two grandchildren Mrs. Claird Ray of Kansas City and Archie Sohns of Chicago. Two sisters live at Junction City. The deceased was ever kindly, loving and cheerful and leaves a host of friends to mourn her departure.

Funeral services were held from the Christian Church in Wilmore, March 17, the Rev. A. R. Bemis officiating. Interment was in the Wilmore cemetery.

Henry C. Baldwin, second husband of Anna C. (Rush) Sohns Baldwin. Though he was living in Wilmore at the time of her death, he wasn't mentioned in her obituary.
