The Life of Samuel Gsell
Death of Mr Samuel Gsell.
After an illness lasting not more than 20 minutes with heart trouble, and even before a physician could arrive, Mr. Samuel Gsell died at the family home, 103 South Cherry, before six o''''clock Monday morning. The funeral service was held from the home Wednesday, morning at 10:00 o''''clock, conducted by Rev. J. A. Monteith. Burial was made in the Olathe cemetery.
With the exception of a carbuncle on one of his knees, Mr. Gsell had his usual good health, so that his death, so unexpectedly, was a very great shock, not only to his family, but to his friends.
Mr. Gsell''''s life was a busy, one, not from necessity, but from choice. He was hardly ever idle a moment, and if he was not employed on his big farm in Franklin county, or repairing some of his Olathe business or residence properties, he was working for someone else. He was one of the best wheat stackers in the county; and each year he was pressed into service in different communities where he had helped them for years.
The soul of honor, highly respected by everyone, quick of wit, and finding keen enjoyment in a jokes whether the laugh was on himself or some one else, he was held in the very highest esteem by everyone. He was indeed a family man, and he delighted in giving his children the very best in education before they set out for themselves. He is survived by his widow, a daughter, Lilian, at home, and four sons, Dr. J. F., Dr. J. H., Sam, jr. and Earl''''The obituary obituary will appear next week.
