Knoop, Mrs. Louis (23 JUL 1888 - 6 FEB 1925)

Once more the Angel of death has collected its toll by removing from our midst the wife of Mr. Louis Knoop. Deceased was the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Retzlaff of the town of Lynn, Clark County, Wis. Some 14 years ago she was united in the bonds of matrimony with Mr. Knoop, and together they settled on 80 acres of forest land, and by many self-denials and hard work have turned it into one of the finest farms in the township of Lynn.

About a week ago she was taken sick with what seemed to be only a sore throat, but as she grew steadily worse she was taken to the hospital at Marshfield, but everything that medical skill and tender hands could do, was of no avail, and last Friday evening between the hours of 5 and 6, when the setting sun was casting its golden rays over this beautiful landscape, she passed to her reward. She remained in full possession of her faculties to the last moment, and shortly before her death she expressed a desire to see her children once more, but before they could be brought to her bedside she had passed to the great beyond. She leaves to mourn her loss her husband and three little daughters, 2 sisters, Clara, Mrs. Albert Garbush of Loyal, and Emma, Mrs. Carl Zais of Lynn, and two half sisters, Minnie, Mrs. Frank Gardner of Fremont and Miss Mathilda Retzlaff of Fremont.

The entire community extends its heartfelt sympathy to the bereaves husband and to the three little daughters, who have been deprived of a protecting arm and a loving mother's care, whose place cannot be filled.

Deceased reached the age of 36 years, 6 months and 14 days. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon from the Maple Works Lutheran Church, Rev. Hasz officiating. Interment was made in the Neillsville Cemetery. The pallbearers were Fred Grottke, Adolph Voight, Ed Paulson, Wm. Albrecht, Charles Meisner and Louis Grade. A little son, who died in infancy and was buried in Pine Valley Cemetery, will soon be removed and place beside his mother to await the coming of the new morn.
