Death of a Pioneer
Mrs. Frank Bundy, Sr., died at her home in Plainfield, Friday morning, June 19, after a lingering illness, caused by a stroke five years ago.

Mrs. Bundy was one of the last of the pioneer women of this vicinity.

Sarah Young was born near Toledo, Ohio, July 18, 1850 and came to Illinois when about nine years of age. She has resided in this vicinity ever since until a few years ago when the family moved to Plainfield. She was married to Frank Bundy in 1866. Mr. and Mrs. Bundy lived for two years on a farm near Caton Farm which was owned by his father. They then moved to the Bundy homestead where they remained until going to Plainfield.

Mr. Bundy preceded her in death about twelve years ago. Two sons, George and Edward Bundy, and a daughter, Mrs. Annie Vinson have passed to the great beyond.

She is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Minnie Latham of Peri Sarna, Ontario, Canada; Mrs. May Carrington and Mrs. Sadie Wilson at home; four sons, Frank, Ellsworth, Ellis and Harry. She had twenty five grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren.  She also is survived by a sister, Mrs. Maria Johnson and a brother, James Young, both of whom live in California.

Mrs. Bundy had suffered the hardships endured by our pioneer women and was ever ready to assist in he care of a sick friend or neighbor.
