Landry, Dora (23 JAN 1861 - 26 OCT 1924)

Dora Oesau was born in New Holstein, Wis., on Jan. 23, 1861 and died at her home south of the village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Sunday Oc.t 26, 1924, after an illness of six months of pernicious anemia.

She spent her girlhood days in New Holstein, and in 1887 came to Thorp. On Nov. 15, 1887, she was united in marriage with John Landry. They settled on the farm south of the village, where they have since resided.

Mrs. Landry was beloved by all who knew her. Through her generous personality and amiable disposition, she acquired a host of friends, who held her in highest regard. She was a faithful and loving wife and mother, intensely devoted to her home and family circle. She, with her husband, were among the pioneers, and greatly interested in their active days in the development of their community. The passing of this beautiful life brings sadness to the many who knew her and her unfailing devotion.

The large funeral and profusion of beautiful flowers which were given as a last tribute to her memory was evidence of the esteem in which she was held by her many acquaintances.

Besides her husband she leaves to mourn her death, four children, Wallace and Mrs. Frank Krampeter of Gilmanton, Howard of Cadott, and Harry of Kilbourn, three sisters, Mrs. Theo. Voss of Kiel, Mrs. Maggie Laurent and Mrs. Fred Borck of Thorp, and two brothers, Arthur Oesau of Manitowoc and George Oesau of Kiel.

Funeral services took place at St. Bernard's Church, Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock, Fev. Fr. Neises officiating, interment being made in St. Bernard's Cemetery.

Those attending the funeral from out of town were, Mrs. Theo. Voss from Kiel, Arthur Oesau from Manitowoc, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Schoer and Mrs. Adam Schluecter of Chilton, Mr. and Mrs. Wallace Landry of Gilmanton, Mr. and Mrs. Barry Landry of Kilbourn, Howard Landry of Cadott, Miss Faye Hyslop of Madison, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Dietrich, Mesdames Anna Dugal, Fred Goetz and Lawrence Dugal of Cadott, and Messrs. Charles Podhola, G. A. Hinterburg and E. A. Gustman of the American Legion, Cadott, Mr. and Mrs. Matt Girnau, Eau Claire, and John and Helmer Dueyson of Loyal.
