SIDNEY ARGUS - HERALD. February 25, 1937. -- The body of Mrs. Elizabeth Brown who died at
a convalescent home in Omaha Sunday, was brought to Thurman Tuesday.
Mrs. Brown was formerly Elizabeth Josephine Ross, born 86 years ago in Ohio, but came to
Iowa when quite young. For many years she lived in and around Bartlett but for the past
few years has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Effie Thornton in Omaha. Besides this
daughter she leaves two sons, Charles Steele of Santa Barbara, California, and Frank
Steele of Thurman, 17 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren and one brother, Charles
Perry Ross of Modesto, California, to mourn her passing.
At an early age she became a member of the Christian church and a minister of that faith
who was a life-long friend, Elder Charles Aitken, conducted the funeral services Tuesday
afternoon at the Methodist church in Thurman and she was laid to rest beside her husband
Arthur Steele in the Thurman cemetery.
