    Nellie Casler Saunders, daughter of Edgar S. and Theodosia Casler, was born in Dunkirk, Dane County, Wis., March 9, 1864, and died at Albion, Wis., Oct. 25, 1923. Much of her early life was spent at Evansville where she received her education.
    On Jan. 13, 1887 she was married to Harlan P. Saunders. There were six children: Vera, now Mrs. H. H. Babcock, Albion; Iva, of Delavan; Bernice, of Chicago; Raymond of Albion; Clare and Kathleen, of Madison.
    The majority of her married life was one of the utmost devotion to her family who will ever cherish her memory as a loving wife and mother. She possessed those innate qualities of superior womanhood of which it is said our heavenly Father is well pleased.
    In 1917, when so many mothers were called upon to lend their sons to the nation, she cheerfully gave her only son. Her failing health augmented by the strain of watching and waiting, rapidly declined during the next few years. Three years ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis and has since been an invalid, spending much of her time at Albion with her sister, Mrs. Ida Atwood, at whose home she passed away. The courage and patience with which she bore her helplessness was an inspiration to all who knew her.
    Mrs. Saunders was one of a family of ten children. All of whom survive her with the exception of a sister, Alma Casler, who died in 1919. They are: Mrs. E. M. Kocher, Chicago; Mrs. J. L. Rutty, Evansville; Henry S. Casler, Wauconda, Ill.; Mrs. Child, Muskogee, Okla.; Mrs. C. E. Shannon, Edgerton; Mrs. Jennie Leslie, Milwaukee; Mrs. Ida Atwood, Albion; and Ernest R. Casler, Madison.
    Funeral services were conducted by the Reverend L. D. Seager, from the home of Mrs. Atwood at Albion, Sunday, October 28. Interment in Evergreen Cemetery. S.
