Maurer, Gwendolyn (6 APR 1888 - 3 APR 1926)

Mrs. Herman Mauer died suddenly Saturday afternoon at Southview Hospital, Milwaukee, where she had been taken Friday, following complications from diphtheria, quinsy and jaundice.

The funeral was held Monday from the hospital chapel and was in charge of Rev. Chas. A. Carriel. Burial was in the Forest Home Cemetery.

Mrs. Maurer, nee Miss Gwendolyn Williams, was born in Indiana, April 6th, 1888, and for a number of years before her marriage she taught in the schools at Medford. In June 1913 she was united in marriage to Herman Maurer, who at that time was cashier of the Dorchester State Bank here (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.), and lived with us until four years ago when the family moved to Milwaukee, as Mr. Maurer had accepted the cashiership of the Central State Bank of that city. She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, two children, Ted and Bob, her father, two brothers and two sisters. Her mother, who lived at Kokomo, Ind., and who had been ill for some time, passed away Sunday, the day following Mrs. Maurer's death.

The Milwaukee Journal says of Mrs. Maurer: "She was widely known in the city for her social service work and was president of the Children's Home Auxiliary Society, chairman of the Tripoli Golf Club, the Ladies of Galilee, and a member of Bethany Presbyterian Church."
