Ulrich, Flora (1900 - 30 AUG 1927)

A veil of gloom overspread Dorchester Country Wednesday when it was learned that Mrs. Ulrich, the young wife of Rudolph Ulrich, had passed away at the St. Joseph's Hospital at Chippewa Falls at 8 o'clock the previous evening.

Mrs. Ulrich was only ill about a week with general peritonitis and no medical aid that could be secured seemed to avail so she was taken to the hospital at Chippewa Falls where death occurred.

The body was brought to the Fuchsgruber Undertaking parlor Wednesday where it was prepared for burial and held in state until the funeral this morning.

The funeral was held at 9:30 this morning from St. Louis Catholic Church, Rev. P. Pitzenberger officiating and burial took place in the St. Louis Cemetery, Joe and Anton Younker, Joseph Geiger, Martin Heindl, Frank Stoiber and Val Staab acted as pallbearers. Obituary will be given next week.

Mrs. Rudolph Ulrich, who died at Chippewa Hospital last week,, Aug. 20, 1927, and was buried Friday morning from St. Louis Catholic Church, was the youngest daughter of Wenzel and Marie Pfohl of Chicago.

Flora Pfohl was born in Viana, Germany, on Aug. 26, 1900 and was 27 years and 4 days at time of death.

When she was 5 years old, she came with her parents to the United States and settled in Chicago. There she grew to womanhood and on Sept. 7, 1917 she was united in marriage to Rudolph Ulrich at St. Paul. They came here and have made their home on their farm west of the town with the exception of two years spent at Rochester, Minn.

Three children were born to them, Shirley, aged 6, Robert 2 ½, and June 6 months old. Mrs. Ulrich's sister, Mrs. Hy. Blaugh of Chicago, too the baby and the other children will stay with their father.

She is gone and the places that knew her will know her no more. Her many friends and loved ones will miss her kindly smile and loving words but for her the work of life is over and rest has come, though she will live on in the hearts and lives of those who loved her so well.

Those who attended the last sad rites were her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wenzel Pfohl, sister, Mrs. Hy. Blaugh, Mrs. James Wesley, brothers, Mr. and Mrs. Felix Pfohl, Victor Pfohl, of Chicago, and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Pfohl of Wild Rose, Fred Ulrich, Sr., Mr. and Mrs. Fred Ulrich, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. Carl Ulrich, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Ulrich, all of Rochester, Minn., and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Ulrich of Wrightstown.
