Wegner, Katherine "Kate" (5 Nov. 1856 - 24 Nov. 1933)

Mrs. Kate ***Wagner, whose death occurred Nov. 24 at the home of her son-in-law, Paul Hagedorn in town of Weston, Nov. 24, was born Nov. 5, 1856 in Schieheim, Baden, Germany. When 26 years old she came to America, settling at Neillsville. On July 3, 1886 Miss Katherine Mick was married to Louis Schwarbel, one son who died in infancy, being born to this union. A few years later death also claimed her husband.

On Sept. 1890 the deceased was married to Herman Wagner. Two sons were born to them, but were taken by death in their in infancy. However, three daughters of a former marriage of Mr. Wagner found a real home and a kind mother in Mrs. Wagner. In 1909 Mr. and Mrs. Wagner moved to Neillsville where on Sept. 26, 1922 Mr. Wagner died. For 11 years Mrs. Wagner continued to live in this city. A year ago Nov. 10, she moved to the Paul Hagedorn home.

Mrs. Wagner was a woman of kind heart and generous spirit, keenly interested in the welfare of her home and family, and enjoyed the warm friendship of all who knew her.

Those who mourn her death are three daughter, Lillie; Mrs. Dietrich Rosenburg, Denver, Colo. who visited her a month ago; Meta, Mrs. Paul Hagedorn; and Hilda, Mrs. Frank Dux of Loyal; 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren and other relatives, and a host of friends.

Services were conducted a week ago Sunday by Rev. Wm. Bauman.

***This is the way the surname was spelled in the original write up. So I am leaving it as it this way in the write up. How ever I am having it index as Wegner, since this is how you would find her in the cemetery index (Neillsville City Cemetery) along with her 2nd husband.
