Van Horn, Kate (19 March 1889 – 21 September 1981)

Kate (Buelow) Van Horn passed away September 21, in the Neillsville Memorial Home. She was 92. Funeral services were held on Thursday, September 24, from the United Methodist Church in Alma Center with the Rev. Jerry Eckert officiating. Burial was made in the East Lawn Cemetery of Alma Center. The Jensen Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

The deceased was born on March 19, 1889, in Sauk County. At the age of 17 she moved with her parents to a farm near Humbird and then to Neillsville. In April of 1913, she married Hugh Van Horn of Jackson County. The couple farmed in the Town of Alma in Jackson County. She remained on the farm until her husband’s death in October 1962. She then went to live with her daughter and son-in-law, Ethel and Leonard Nelson, who resided near the farm.

Mrs. Van Horn later spent a short time with a relative in Alma Center. In the spring of 1979, she became a resident of Neillsville Memorial Home. She was a member of the Royal Neighbors, the United Methodist Church and that church’s women’s group.

Survivors include Mrs. Nelson, Carl and Rosina Frank and children and several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death, besides her husband, by two brothers, three sisters and a son.
