Krause, Louise (28 Oct. 1882 - 11 Feb. 1926)
Miss Louise Krause of Granton died Thursday evening, Feb. 11, at Marshfield hospital, where she had been a patient since January 2. Her health had not been good, however, for some time previous.
Louise Krause, daughter of Gottlieb and Amanda Krause, was born in Germany October 28, 1882. She came to America with her parents when she was four years of age. She was given a common school education, that greater part of her life was spent at home. Eight years ago she entered the service of the telephone company as an operator at Granton and remained at her duties there until her health failed. She was greatly appreciated by the patrons of the telephone exchange, by her employers and those associated with her. She was always faithful and conscientious, courteous and accommodating, and has been greatly missed since her ill health required her to give up her work. In her home and among her relatives and large circle of friends her death has caused deep and sincere mourning.
Her father died 15 years ago, and one brother died in Germany. She is survived by her mother, three brothers: Emil and Fred at home, Frank in Dakota; four sisters Elsie, Mrs. Freeman Dankemyer of Fremont; Clara, Mrs. W. C. Egbert of Pemberville, Ohio; Amelia, Mrs. Loren Hales of York; Lydia, Mrs. Richard Moede of Marshfield.
The funeral was held Monday from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Loren Hales, and Rev. Reiff’s church in Grant. Rev. Ferne of Marshfield spoke in English and Rev. Reiff in German. The pall-bearers were George Hales, Arnold Worchel, Walter Krause, Joe Hefty, Dan Gluch, and Herman Gluch.
