Poppe, Augusta (1864 - 30 JAN 1925)

Mrs. Augusta Poppe died at the Marshfield Hospital about noon Friday, Jan. 30, 1925, after an operation.

Mrs. Poppe, whose maiden name was Augusta Kuenkel, was born in Germany in 1864. She came with her family to the United States in 1888. In 1890 she was married in Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. to Ernest Poppe. They immediately moved to their farm in the town of Weston, which was their home until Mr. Poppe's death, which occurred about 10 years ago. She moved to Neillsville and lived here to the close of her life. Mrs. Poppe was a woman who had the love and respect of all who knew her.

She had no children, and leaves only a brother, Wm. Kuenkel of the town of Hendren and a sister, Mrs. Fuchtner of the town of Seif. The funeral was held Monday at St. John's Lutheran Church, Rev. H. Brandt officiating. Burial took place in the Bahr Cemetery in the town of Weston.
