Stange, Jennie Amelia (10 Dec. 1862 - 26 Oct. 1931)

Jennie Amelia Condit was born at Rubicon, Dodge county, Wisconsin, Dec. 10, 1862, and died at Diller, Nebraska, Oct. 26, 1931.

At the age of five years her parents moved with her to near Neillsville, Wis., which at that time as a wilderness of virgin timber, where they cleared up a small farm. Here she grew to womanhood and at an early age helped to support the family with such meager earnings as could be paid by those needing help such as she was able to render.

When about 20 years of age the family sold their little farm and moved to Neillsville where she was employed at sewing and nursing for a quite a number of years. She here joined the Congregational Church where she was a loyal worker, teaching a Sunday school class and singing in the choir.

On Jun 9, 1897, she was united in marriage to Paul Stange and moved with him to Wheeler County, Nebraska, where they resided until coming to Diller in February 1903, where she has made her home ever since.

For quite a number of years her health has been falling so it was impossible for her to do any active work in church circles, but she was always glad to help with what she could do. She was a lover of her home and labored beyond her strength to make it as near as possible to what she considered ideal. She is survived by her husband and one sister, two nephews and two nieces. Diller, Nebr. Record.

Mrs. Stange will be well remembered by many here. Before her married she worked five years in the Neillsville post office when I. T. Carr was postmaster.
