Stange, Jennie (24 Jan. 1867 - 27 Jan. 1932)

This community was greatly shocked Wednesday morning to learn that Mrs. Carl Stange, one of Neillsville’s most beloved citizens, had died at 2 a.m. at the Neillsville hospital, where she has been a patient for the past ten days. Mrs. Stange, who was suffering from a generalized infection following an infection of the mouth, according to her doctor, had been critically ill for the past week and several days ago little hope was held for her recovery as she gradually lost strength, finally passing into a coma from which she failed to regain consciousness. At midnight Tuesday it was reported at the hospital that her pulse was barely discernible and her respiration has become very feeble. Death was said to be only a mater of a few hours.

Mrs. Stange was taken ill about two weeks ago and on Jan. 14 Dr. Sarah Rosekrans was called. Mrs. Stange was removed to the hospital and every possible care given her, but the infection had become too far advanced to respond to treatment.

No arrangements for the funeral service, which will be in charge of W. F. Schiller, had been made up to the time of going to the Press. A complete obituary will be published next week.

Jennie French Stange was born on Jan. 24, 1867, near Monroe, Wis., and passed from this life, after an illness of two weeks at the Neillsville hospital on the morning of Jan. 27, 1932, aged 65 years and three days. With the exception of the first five years, her entire life was spent in the part of Wisconsin. She attended school in Neillsville and learned the printer’s trade, at which she worked occasionally for several years.

On Mar. 28, 1889 she was united in marriage to Carl Stange, who survives her. She leaves also two brothers, and several nieces and nephews, besides a host of friends. For many years her life was devoted to an aged father and mother who spent their last days in her home.

She was a charter member of the Eastern Star of Neillsville and also of the Royal Neighbors. He creed in life is well expressed in the following lines:

Thus in time we shall know if only we do, What lifts, ennobles, is right and true. With kindness to all; with malice to none, that in and through us God’s will many be done.

The funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the Masonic Temple, and impressive ritual of the Order of the Eastern Star being used. The Royal Neighbors attended in a body.
