Lueck, Albert (20 DEC 1858 - 27 FEB 1929)
Albert Lueck, one of the prominent and most highly respected farmers in the town of Weston, Clark County, Wis., passed away at his home in that town on Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 27, 1929, at the age of 70 years, 2 months and 7 days.
Albert Frederick Lueck was born near Arnswalde, Brandenburg Co., Germany, Dec. 20, 1858. He grew to manhood there, was educated in the schools of his home community and received careful religious training and instruction. He was married in Germany to Miss Ottillie Schoenherr in 1885 and they lived there two years after their marriage. They then immigrated to America and settled in the town of Weston. After living two years on a rented farm, they bought a farm of their own, which remained their home ever since. Mr. Lueck was very industrious and made a comfortable home for himself and family. In early life he had learned the mason's trade and his skill in this work was of great service to him. He was a member of the Globe Lutheran Church and was very faithful in his religious life and duties.
Mr. Lueck had enjoyed almost perfect health until about six years ago, when he met with an accident which gradually undermined his strength; about two years ago it began to affect his heart. The day before his death he had an attack of heart failure, from which he did not rally.
To Mr. and Mrs. Lueck eight children were born, two of whom died in infancy. Those surviving with their mother are: Erick Lueck of Greenwood; Lena, Mrs. Theo. Hoffmann of Wabaso, Minn.; Rose, Mrs. Ben Beyer of Redwood Falls, Minn.; Bertha, Mrs. Henry Stiemke of Milwaukee; Charles in the town of Levis and William at home. He leaves also nine grandchildren; also two sisters, Mrs. Carl Schroeder of Globe and Mrs. Emil Steinberg in Germany.
The funeral was held at the Globe Lutheran Church, Sunday, Rev. Motzkus officiating. Although the roads were such that nearly all who attended the funeral had to come with sleighs, the church was filled to overflowing with friends and neighbors, indicating the high respect in which deceased was held.
Those from away who were here to attend the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Hoffmann and son of Wabaso, Minn.; Mrs. Ben Beyer and daughter Arlene of Redwood Falls, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Stiemke of Milwaukee; Rudolph Martin of Norwalk, Wis.; Mrs. B. Tuttle and daughter of Ludington, Mich.; Fred Schoenherr of Custer, Mich.; Miss Rose Mitte of Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Lueck and children of Milwaukee.
