Sadie Adelia Buller, nee Bergstrom, was born in Lynn Center, Illinois, June 23, 1884, and passed away Feb 9, 1947, having reached the age of 62 years, 7 months and 8 days.
She came to this community at the age of 12 and resided with her parents until her marriage to R. H. Buller on July 2, 1913.
To this union three children were born, one passing away in infancy.
They lived on a farm north of Old Kiron for three years and moved to Kiron in 1917, where they have resided since.
She was ever willing to give a helping hand, and was active in the Ladies Aid and Missionary societies of the Mission church. For many years she was on the flower committee at the church.
She is survived by her husband, R. H. Buller; one daughter Ruby (Mrs. Howard Purdy) of Carnavon; one son, Seldon of Kiron; two sisters, Emma (Mrs. F. Ehret ) of Denver, Colorado; Edna (Mrs. J. B. Rogsdale ) of Sierraville, California; and one brother, John Bergstrom of Sierraville, California and four grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, one daughter Marjorie, one brother Edward Bergstrom, and one sister Mrs. Anna Norelius, who passed away only two months ago.
She had been ill for three weeks but was improving so much that she could be up for a short time each day. On Wednesday morning she suffered a stroke from which she never rallied.
