Frese, Anna (17 SEP 1846 - 3 SEP 1925)
Mrs. Anna Frese (nee Von Bergen) was born in Germany Sept. 17, 1846. In 1866 she came to America with her parents. In the year 1869 she was married to Bernhard Frese in New Holstein, Calumet Co., where they lived until 1886, when they came to the town of Reseburg, Clark County, Wis., and settle on the farm which was then all virgin forest, and shouldered the hardship and privation of a pioneer life. She enjoyed good health until about a year and a half ago, when she took sick with hardening of the arteries. From this time on her strength failed her until last March when she was unable to take care of the household anymore, she went to the hospital at Chippewa Falls for treatment. After spending three weeks there and not getting any relief and longing for home and home surroundings she again returned home and bravely bore her suffering as only a mother can do, until Thursday afternoon, Sept. 3rd, 1925, she quietly passed away. May she rest in peace. She leaves to mourn, her aged husband, three sons, John, Henry and Herman, all of this neighborhood, and five daughters, Mrs. M. S. McKee and Mrs. John Rossman of Polley, Wis., Bertha of Chippewa Falls, Ida and Meta from here, 24 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held at the home on Sunday afternoon last, interment following in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
