Mrs. Rose Huss, Pioneer, Passes. Widely Known Valley Resident Taken By Death Today. Mrs. Rose Huss, 73, widely known Kittitas Valley pioneer, died at her home here this morning [March 12, 1946].

Mrs. Huss traveled with her parents to this area by covered wagon over the Old Oregon Trail when a girl of seven, in 1879. She was born Rose Rader, a daughter of the late A.

Their first home in the valley was the farm now owned by Cecil Johnson in the Fairview District.

She was married to the late Edward H. Huss, October 9, 1890. Mr. Huss died in 1917. Mrs. Huss is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Lloyd Libke and Mrs. Vernon Oakes, a son, Arthur E. Huss, all of Ellensburg. Another son, Edward, now a member of the Army air forces stationed at Fresno, Calif., arrived here today. Six grandchildren also survive.

Mrs. Huss was a life-long member of the First Christian Church and a charter member of the local church. Funeral arrangements, in charge of the Honeycutt Funeral Home, have not been completed. [Buried in IOOF Cemetery]
