Wegner, Louise (17 MAR 1863 - 27 JUN 1924)

Mrs. August Wegner died at her home in Pine Valley June 27, 1924, after a lingering illness.

Mrs. Wegner, whose maiden name was Louse Hemp, was born in the Province of Brandenburg, Germany, March 17, 1863. She came with her family to the U. S. in 1871. They settled near Watertown, Wis., where they lived until 1875, when they moved to the town of Weston, Clark County, Wis. She was united in marriage to August Wegner of Pine Valley, Clark County, in 1883, and they have since lived on their farm in that town. To them were born four children: Mrs. Aleada Adams, living on the home farm in Pine Valley; Mrs. Olgina Gluch, residing in the town of Grant; Mrs. Elsie Stelloh of Neillsville and Arthur Wegner residing in the town of Seif. She leaves also 12 grandchildren, 6 brothers and one sister. Mrs. Wegner was a woman of the domestic type. She came here as a young girl when the country was new and in her parent's home and later in her own home, performed the duties that fell to the lot of women in pioneer times. This work for her home and family and for those in the neighborhood, who needed help, was well and faithfully done. The influence of her life and such as hers will long be felt in this community.

The funeral was held at the Pine Valley Lutheran Church on Monday, Rev. Reiff officiating.
