Source: unknown newspaper, date: Oct 5 1928; submitted by Eileen Kozman

Margaret Ellen Webster was born in Guernsey Co, Ohio, Nov 21 1865, and departed life Wednesday, Oct 3, 1928.

She came with her parents to Iowa when a small child. She received her education in the public schools of that state and followed the profession of teaching for five years. Then deciding that nursing offered more scope for usefulness, she entered the Bennett hospital in Chicago, from which she graduated in December, 1905.

She then followed her profession for several years in Chicago. From there she went to the Murray hospital, Butte, Montana, where she was special nurse until the failing health of her parents called her back to Spooner, Wis.

She was the ministering angel of the home from this time on, throughout the lingering illness of the father and the long invalidism of the mother until her own health gave way.

On Jan 2, 1926, she entered the Lakeside hospital at Rice Lake where the physicians told her she had pernicious anemia and that her case was hopeless. She remained cheerful and waited patiently the call of the Heavenly Father whom she so implicitly trusted. She was taken down on July 6th and remained bedfast until the angel of death released her from her sufferings.

She leaves to mourn her loss three sister and one brother, Mrs. J. F. Johnston, of Chelsea, Iowa; Raybun and E H. Webster, with whom she resided; and Mrs. W. H. Rasmusson, of Des Moines, Iowa all of whom were with her throughout the last month of her illness.
