Burt, west of Auxvasse, September 5, 1921. She grew up to young womanhood near Liberty church, of which she became a member when about fourteen years of age, and remained a member until 1899, when she became a member of Auxvasse Christian church. She was a member of this congregation at the time of her death. On October 16, 1890, she was married to C.J. Muster.

For about eighteen years she has been doing work as a nurse in various homes in this part of Callaway, in which capacity she rendered much valuable service in the alleviation of suffering. She was well known for her industriousness and patience which so eminently fitted her for her work as a nurse. She was a loyal member of the church, always manifesting to the last of her activities a desire to be interested in the work of the church and religious affairs.
