Eisberner, Mary (28 MAY 1852 - 14 JUL 1912)
The community was again called upon, last Friday evening, to mourn the sudden death of another one of its much respected housewives, Mrs. A. R. Eisberner of the town of Cleveland, Jackson Co. Up to that time Mrs. Eisberner had been enjoying fairly good health, and was sitting on the porch just before the supper hour. She suffered an attack of cerebral apoplexy, and expired almost instantly. The different members of the family were immediately notified and Mr. Eisberner and son Will, who were in Montana, Arthur, who lives near Hartford, and her sister, Mrs. Bartel Hahn of Milwaukee, came to attend the last rites performed for the dead. Her son Frank, who was also in Montana, could not come as he was working away from their homestead at the time. The funeral was held at her late home Tuesday afternoon, July 16, at two o'clock, and was attended by a large number of neighbors and friends. Rev. A. A. Marcy preached the sermon, and the remains were laid at rest in the Mentor Cemetery.
The deceased was a woman highly respected by all who knew her. Later years she not often left the farm, for her interest was there, and there her heart was also. She had the true spirit of a devoted mother, and this home has lost a noble wife, a kind, true, faithful mother. The community has lost another whose life was a living example of industry, one who has faced hardships with the fortitude of a heroine. She has gone to her eternal home, where sorrows are no more, where tears are unknown.
Mary Sperveslage was born in the state of New York, May 28, 1852, and came with her parents to Wisconsin in early childhood, settling in Dodge Co. She was united in marriage with Mrs. August R. Eisberner on Nov. 9, 1876, at Woodland, Dodge Co., and after a few years residence there they moved to the farm in the town of Cleveland in 1880, which has since been their home. To this union were born eight children, Arthur of Hartford, Mrs. Jane Smith, John deceased, Alfred, Edward, William, Frank and Emma. Two of the son, William and Frank, live on a homestead near Westmore, Mont., and their father was there with them at the time of Mrs. Eisberner's death. Besides the husband and children, she leaves to mourn her untimely departure six grandchildren; her mother, living at Hartford; three sisters, Miss Jane of Hartford, Mrs. Bartel Hahn of Milwaukee, Mrs. Frank Lawrence of Arlington, Iowa; and one brother, George, of Rubicon; and a large circle of friends.
