Patten, Nora (24 NOV 1870 - 11 DEC 1893)

Died, at her home in the town of Hull, Marathon Co., Wis., adjoining the city limits on the north, on Monday evening, Dec. 11th, 1893, of consumption, Nora, beloved wife of Willard H. Patten, aged 23 years and 17 days.

Nora Schultz was born in Dubuque, Iowa, Nov. 24th, 1870, coming to this place with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Schultz, while yet a mere child, and here among us, where she had grown to womanhood "pure and fair," she counted her friends by the score. Oct. 27th, 1889, she was united in marriage with Willard H. Patten, who survives her to mourn the loss of a kind and loving wife. This union was blessed with one child, a babe of about two years is thus early deprived of a mother’s tender care.

The funeral occurred today at the Lutheran Church, Rev. J. R. Fiehler, officiating, and the remains were interred in Colby Cemetery, where they were followed by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives.
