- Schoeber, Mrs. John (05 Mar 1858 - 28 Sept 1908)
Mrs. John Schoeber died at her home one mile west of this village last Monday night at 11:27 o’clock of inflammation of the bowels after a brief illness of one week. The funeral services were held at the Catholic church yesterday morning at 10 o’clock. Rev. John Neises conducted the services and paid a glowing tribute to the deceased one.
Mrs. Schoeber was an every day Christian. The beautifying influences of a pure religion were spread over a life and character as spotless and charming as was ever possessed by any of the noble women who have lived and died during the ages that are gone. As such a life was a blessings and benefaction to all within the sphere of its influence as is the death of such a one a public misfortune, as well as an irreparable loss to the home circle made desolate by her departure. It is difficult to pay a fitting ____ to the memory of so noble a woman - one whose every day life was embellished by the attributes of her sex. A perfect lady at all times - under all circumstances, she seemed born to inspire the love and respect of all who were so fortunate as to be acquainted with her. No one was more willing to aid the suffering and cheer the desponding.
Mrs. Schroeber remained conscious to the last and although fully aware that her life was near its close, she manifested no dread but bravely awaited the end of the struggle after bidding all her loved ones a last good bye. The end was as peaceful as the close of a beautiful summer day.
Mrs. John Schoeber was born in Bohemia on March 5, 1858, came to America with her husband and three children in 1881 and settled on the farm where she died. She was the mother of 11 children of which two died in infancy. She leaves to mourn her death a husband and 9 children and also a large circle of friends with whom the Herald joins in the deepest sympathy for the bereaved ones in their hour of grief.
