Hohenstein, Elizabeth (27 APR 1848 - 27 APR 1928)

On Friday, April 27, 1928, the eventful life of Mrs. Fred Hohenstein was closed when death entered the Hohenstein home and took this aged lady to her great reward. Eighty years had this good lady lived her life of usefulness and it may be truly said of her that her life was replete with kindness and goodness. She was a most excellent wife and mother and a good neighbor, and the universal esteem in which she was held speaks best for her standing in this community.

Deceased was born Elizabeth Whittof of Limburg, Germany, on April 27, 1848. She was married to Fred Hohenstein in 1871 and the following year they came to the U. S. to take up their residence. They located at Utica, Ill., and lived there until 1895, when they moved to a farm in Clark County, Wis. and lived there until 1908, when they moved to Neillsville. They bought a home on South Oak St. and lived there until last fall, when failing health compelled them to make their home with their son, Fred, on South Grand Ave.

Eight children were born to them and all of them survive to comfort their bereaved father. The children are William Hohenstein of Arlington, Wash.; Rudolph Hohenstein of Myrtle Creek, Wash.; Mrs. Arthur Patterson of Sacramento, Cal.; Mrs. Charles Franklin of Rockford, Ill.; Mrs. Henry Wallace of Neillsville; Mrs. Rudolph Frantz of Neillsville; Fred Hohenstein of Neillsville and Peter Hohenstein of Neillsville. Deceased is also survived by 29 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon at the home of Fred Hohenstein and was conducted by Peter Temby of the Christian Science Church, of which she was a member. Interment was made in the Neillsville Cemetery. W. F. Schiller conducted the funeral.
