Mathilda Kupka was born in Grosz Lipke, Provinz Posen, Germany and was the youngest of a family of seven. In the year of 1881 she immigrated with her husband to America and landed here on Xmas day. In the spring of the same year they moved to the farm 2 3/4 miles northwest of Dorchester, Clark County, which was then a wilderness, and which she helped to make what is now the old homestead. It was here she has resided all her life.
During her illness she was tenderly cared for by her loving husband and children whose efforts never failed to please and comfort her, and who were all at her bedside when the end came.
She was the mother of 14 children, two sons, Carl and Herman, dying in infancy. She is survived by her husband and five sons and seven daughters, Wm., Otto, Hugo, Paul and Frank, and Mrs. John Meschefske of Stetsonville, Mrs. Franklin Tonn of Curtiss, Mrs. Miron Virch of Peshtigo, Martha, Bertha, Hattie and Gertrude, 23 grandchildren, 2 sisters and one brother in Germany. Mrs. Schultz was a woman who believed and trusted in God, a loving wife, a helpful sister, an excellent mother, and a true friend who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Another kind friend and neighbor gone to the reward she so richly deserves.
