Prust, Ernestine (8 DEC 1858 - 30 NOV 1932)

Chili, Clark County, Wis., Dec. 2 - Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon in the Evangelical Church for Mrs. August Prust, 74, a resident of this community for many years, who died Wednesday at her home in the village. Burial will be made in the Yolo Cemetery. The Rev. George Zimmerman will officiate.

The following will serve as pallbearers: Louis, John, Emil, and August Lindow, William Happe, and Oscar Franke. Flowers will be in charge of Irene Sternitzky, Viola Mundt, Louis Verhagen, and Viola Guk.

Mrs. Prust, whose maiden name was Ernestine Lindow, was born Dec. 8, 1858, in Fond du Lac, and grew to womanhood in her home community. She was married in 1876 to August Prust and lived for several years at Greenleaf and in Calumet Co. before coming to Clark County, where they settled on a farm one and one-half miles outside of Chili. In 1915 they sold the place and purchased a smaller farm near here, where they lived until after the death of Mr. Prust in 1927. A year ago Mrs. Prust built a home in the village, where she lived with her daughter, Eliza.

Other surviving children are Mrs. Charles Guk (Bertha) and Mrs. Joseph Sternitzky (Elsie) Lynn; John Prust, town of Fremont, Charles Prust, Granton; Emil and Will Prust, Marshfield; and Adolph Prust, Wilton, N.D. She also leaves 38 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, six half brothers, three half sisters, and a step-brother.
