Ramer, Susan (16 MAY 1850 - 26 JUL 1930)
Mrs. Susan Ramer died Saturday, July 26, 1930, shortly after the noon hour, at the home of Jake Smith, of infirmities of age.
Susan Stockner was born in Salzburg, Austria, May 16, 1850. In 1870 she was married to Michael Ramer, and they came to America in 1882, and settled near West Bend, Wis.
After a few years, they moved to Edson, Chippewa Co. and from there to Stanley, and in 1884 moved to the town of Thorp.
To this union were born ten children, six of whom preceded her in death. Those living are Mrs. Paul Salhover of Austria, Mike Ramer of Thorp, Mrs. Matt Gruber of Stanley, and Mrs. Jake Smith of Thorp, one sister in Austria and 13 grandchildren.
Her husband died in 1898 at the age of fifty-six years. Three years after this, her son Frank, at the age of twenty, while the others died in infancy.
The funeral was held Monday at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Rev. Father Muckerheide officiating. Her remains were laid in the Catholic Cemetery by the side of her husband and son.
After a long and useful life, she died as she had lived, honored, trusted and loved. She reared her own monument while she lived in the hearts of all who knew her. Her life was completed, if work all done and wll done constitutes completion.
Her Christian life was beautiful from its beginning to its close, and through all the vicissitudes and sorrows she met, her faith in God never wavered.
