Schwentkofske, Henrietta (1855? - 11 AUG 1928)

Mrs. Fred Schwentkofske died at Superior, Wis., Aug. 11, 1928, aged 73 years. She had been in poor health for about 2 years previous to her death.

Henrietta Boettke was born in Germany, grew to womanhood and was married there to Fred Schwentkofske. They came to Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. 46 years ago and made their home here 38 years. Mr. Schwentkofske died a number of years ago. In 1920 Mrs. Schwentkofske went to Superior to be with her children. She is survived by four sons and three daughters: Gus of Stockton, Calif.; Fred of Bremer, Minn.; Will of Superior; Carl of Bibbon, Wis.; Laura, Mrs. W. E. Hoover; Theresa, Mrs. Eveland and Mrs. Minnie Deland, all of Superior. She leaves also 19 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Schwentkofske was very well thought of here and many friends will sorrow to know of her death.

The remains were brought here for burial, the funeral being held at the Reformed Church last week Wednesday, Rev. Edwin H. Vornholt officiating.

All of the children except Gus were here for the funeral, also a granddaughter, Mrs. John Hayburn of Duluth and Dennis O'Grady of Merrillan.
