Frechette, Bertha (28 Aug. 1861 - 14 Dec. 1933)

Mrs. Bertha Frechette, an old resident of the town of Sherwood, passer away Thursday, Dec. 14, aged 72 years, 3 months and 16 days.

Mrs. Frechette, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Zipel, was born in Altenberg, Germany, Aug. 28, 1861. When she was six years old she came with her parents to America, the family settling at Farmington, Wis. Six years later they moved to Clark County, settling on a farm in the town of Grant.

On June 9, 1880, deceased was married Albert Scholtz and they moved to the town of Sherwood, near Nevins. Here Mr. Scholtz died Aug. 3, 1893. Several years later she married Henry Frechette. They continued to live on her home farm near the old La Flesh Mill. Mr. Frechette died in December, 1922.

To her first marriage seven children were born and to the latter marriage there were three. One daughter, Aneita, died when two years of age. The surviving children are: Mrs. Clara Baker, Seattle; Mrs. Mayme Gall, Greenwood; Mrs. Minnie Vogeli, Cambria; Mrs. Isabelle Tullis, Waukesha; Mrs. Beulah De Foe, Sturgeon Bay; Albert Scholtz, Wausau; Frank Scholtz, Waukesha; Louis Scholtz, Neillsville; Ralph Scholtz, Sherwood.

There are also several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon from the home at Sherwood Town Hall, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating. All of the children except Mrs. Baker of Seattle were present.

Mrs. Frechette was a lady of most admirable qualities, kind and hospitable to friends and strangers, a good wife and kindly mother. She was loved and respected by all who knew her, and will be greatly missed by her family and many friends.


We have lost our darling mother; she has bid us all adieu. She has gone to life in Heaven and her form is lost to view. Oh that dear one, how we loved her, Oh how hard to give her up, but an angel came down for her and removed her from our flock. A precious one from us has gone, a voice we loved is tilled, a place is vacant in our home which never can be filled. God in His Wisdom has recalled the boon His love had given and though the body slumbers here, the soul is safe in Heaven.
