Dangers, Helen (25 March 1842 - 23 March 1931)


Pioneer is Stricken at Home of Kin in Milwaukee

News reached Neillsville relatives and friends Tuesday morning that Mrs. B. Dangers had passed away the evening before, on Monday, March 23, at 4:30 o’clock at the home of her daughters, Mrs. B. P. Churchill, in Milwaukee, where she was visiting. Mrs. Dangers was one of the oldest pioneers of Neillsville ......she would have been 89 years of age, had she lived two days longer.

Helene von Frankenburg Ludwigsdorf, was born in Germany, March 25, 1842. Her mother died in Germany, and when she was a girl about 14 years of age she came to America with her father and other members of the family, who settled at West Bend, Wis. Here she grew to womanhood and on October 8, 1867, was married to Burghard Dangers. In 1883 they came to Neillsville where Mr. Dangers went into the mercantile business, in which he continued until his death in 1914. They were people of the finest type ... refined and cultured and at the same time practical and efficient in the affairs of life and in business. Mrs. Dangers was a lady of clear and alert mind, reading widely and keeping well informed even into her advanced age. Her life was beautifully rounded out and complete .... "a sheaf full ripe for the harvest," and she leaves to her family and friends a heritage of sweet and gracious memories.

Mrs. Dangers is survived by four daughters, and two sons: Clara, Mrs. Eppling of Portland, Oregon; Minnie, Mrs. T. E. Brameld, of Milwaukee; Lillian, Mrs. B. P. Churchill, Milwaukee; Elsa, Mrs. Kircher, Hollywood, California; Walter and Fred in Neillsville. One daughter, Louise Turner, died in 1913. She leaves also nice grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

The funeral will be held in St. John’s Lutheran Church, Neillsville, at 2 p.m. Thursday, Rev. Wm. Baumann officiating.
