Obituary: Pearl L. Bradbury
Pearl L. Range was born near Lincolnville, Penn., August 18, 1850 and came west with her parents in 1880 via the Southern Pacific railroad to San Francisco, Calif., thence by boat to Portland, Ore., then up the Columbia river by boat to Wallula and on the old Dr. Barker railroad to Dayton, Wash. There her parents located. In 1881 she came north to Sucker lake, now known as Hauser lake. From there she moved to old Steamboat Landing near the present Idlewild on Lake Pend d'Oreille. Moving thence to Rathdrum. She met and married Edgar H. Bradbury in 1892 and had resided here ever since. Mrs. Bradbury was loved by all who knew her, being known in the early days as the only doctor this side of Old Fort Sherman, now Coeur d'Alene. Going far and near on horseback to care for the sick. She never waited to be called but went as soon as she knew of a sick one, regardless of who they were. Mrs. Bradbury held the distinction of having ridden on the first train to pass over the rails of the N. P. railroad from Spokane to Rathdrum, riding in the cab of the work train. She was a kind and loving wife and mother, friend and neighbor to all. She was reared in the Methodist faith, her father James Range, being a Methodist minister for over 50 years. Throughout her younger years she was active in church life. She had been practically an invalid for the past 30 years. Handicapped in this way she, however, managed to do her duties in the home. She passed away Saturday evening, Feb. 18, 1928, at the age of 77 years and 6 months, and leaves to mourn her death, one son C.A. Bradbury of Rathdrum, one sister, Mrs. Nannie R. Kelly of Sacramento, Calif., and two brothers, Lytle and Geo. Range of Dayton, Wash. Other surviving relatives include Harry S. Bradbury of Rathdrum, Mrs. Olive Gustaval and family, Mrs. Edna Synder and W. E. Bradbury of Oakland, Calif. Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at the Community Methodist church. Rev. C.
