Susan Elena Mosing


Susie Mosing Mortimer, daughter of Nels and Christina Mosing was born March 4th, 1876 at Mauston and died December 29th, 1955 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Chas. Kredl in Cazenovia. The early years of her life were spent in the Bethel Community.

She was united in marriage to Bert Mortimer of Valton in the year of 1900.

To this union were born three children. She was preceded in death by her husband and two sons, Herbert and Kenneth.

She was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith and later joined the Wesleyan Methodist church. For twenty-seven years, Mrs. Mortimer was in a wheel chair. Through physical handicap and suffering her faith held steady. Her kindly ways, her cheery disposition, won for her the respect and love of all who knew her. People in calling on her to cheer her found themselves cheered instead.

She leaves to mourn her passing, her daughter, Beatrice, and husband of Cazenovia; a daughter-in-law, Florence of Madison, a grandson, Dale and wife; two great granddaughters, Vicki Lynn and Kim Renee of Mineral Point; a sister, Mrs. Harry Jessop of Cazenovia, and other relatives and a host of friends.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the Valton Wesleyan Methodist church, the Rev. L. J. Poe officiating assisted by the Rev. Norma Henderson. The songs, “Some Day the Silver Cord will Break’; and “No Night There” were beautifully rendered by Mr. and Mrs. Gail Jackson with Mrs. Poe at the organ.

The pall bearers were Lewis Manglos, Ronald, Walter, John, Keith, and Harvey Mortimer. The beautiful flowers, the memorial gifts and the large gathering of sorrowing relatives and friends were mute evidence of the high esteem in which Mrs. Mortimer was held. Interment was in the Valton cemetery.
