Marth, Albertina (10 DEC 1847 - 29 JUL 1924)

Mrs. Albert Marth, one of the old residents of Pine Valley, Clark County, Wis., died suddenly at her home Tuesday evening, July 29, 1924. Her death was due to a stroke of apoplexy, which came on at about 5 o'clock and her death took place about 4 hours later.

Mrs. Marth, whose maiden name was Albertina Beyer, was born in Germany Dec. 10, 1847, making her 76 years, 7 months and 18 days old at the time of her death. She came to America Oct. 24, 1872 and was married to Albert Marth in Neillsville July 1877. They settled on their farm in Pine Valley, which ever since remained their home, except two years when they lived in Neillsville. She was a woman whose life was devoted to sacrificing labor for those about her, ever mindful of the welfare of her home, family, neighbors and more distant relatives. She was a faithful member of the Lutheran Church in Neillsville and lived a consistent Christian life.

She leaves her aged husband and three children: Pauline, Mrs. Fred Ackerman of Pine Valley, Bertha, Mrs. Charles Puphal of Merrill, Wis., and Joseph Marth on the home farm; also one step-son, Frank Marth of South Dakota. She leaves one brother, August Beyer of Weston, and five grandchildren.

The funeral was held August 1 in Neillsville, Rev. H. Brandt officiating.
