Ida Fleming
MAIDEN NAME: Hollensbe AKA 1:  AKA 2:  AKA 3:

BIRTH PLACE:  Greensburg, Decatur Co., Indiana

IOOF - Mrs. Ida Fleming, age 44, born in Indiana, died in Salem - corner of Center & Cottage, beloved wife of R. B. Fleming.
Passed from this Life Yesterday--Due to Nervous Trouble. 
The R. B. Fleming residence, at the southeast corner of Center and Cottage streets, this city, is in mourning, the Grim Reaper having visited it at 4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon and claimed the spirit of the beloved wife. 
Ida E. Hollensbe was born in Greensburg, Indiana, on August 2, 1855, and on the 24th of March, 1872, she became the life partner of Robert B. Fleming, in the city of Omaha. They made their residence there about two years and then moved to Carson City, Nevada, where they were residents until 1877. In that year Mr. and Mrs. Fleming came to Portland and nine years later moved to Salem where they have since lived, Mr. Fleming being vice-president and manager of the Northwestern Stove Foundry company whose plant is located within the enclosure of the state penitentiary. Several months ago Mrs. Fleming was stricken down by a nervous trouble which baffled the skill of the best known physicians and which was the direct cause of her death. 
Mrs. Fleming was a member of the Congregational church and labored in its interests with an untiring hand, being always numbered among those who were ever ready and willing to promote the work of Christianity. Performing deeds of charity seemed to be her one thought, and many of the humble class of citizens in this and other cities will receive the news of her death with the deepest sorrow. 
In the social circles of the Capital City she was a favorite member and her name was always included among those who made up the gatherings at the most popular society functions. The funeral will be conducted at the residence by Rev. W. C. Kantner, at 2:30 o'clock tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon.

AT REST--The remains of Mrs. R. B. Fleming now rest in a grave within Rural cemetery, a mound of the most beautiful and floral emblems marking the spot. The funeral services over the deceased were held yesterday afternoon at the family residence, on the southwest corner of Center and Cottage streets, and were attended by a large number of the friends and acquaintances of the bereaved husband. Rev. W. C. Kantner officiated and his tribute to the life of Mrs. Fleming was very touching. The pall-bearers were John D. Sutherland, H. S. Belle, R. S. Bean, Lot L. Pearce, George G. Bingham and J. R. Krausse. Mrs. Fleming was a charter member of Capital Assembly, No. 84, United Artisans, of Salem, and quite a number of her coworkers in that lodge were present at the funeral; a delicate floral piece from the order was noticed among the offerings. As a member of the lodge she carried a beneficiary certificate for $2000.
