Schwarze, Katherine (9 AUG 1853 - 10 OCT 1921)

The deceased, Katherine Schwarze, formerly Zeisel, wife of John Schwarze, was born in the town of Sheboygan Falls, Wis., Aug. 9, 1853.

In 1874 she was united in marriage to John Schwarze. They moved to Greenwood, Clark County, Wis. in 1880, where they made their home on a farm until two years ago, when they moved to this city.

The union was blessed with eleven children, five of which preceded their mother in death. Three sisters and two brothers are also dead.

Mrs. Schwarze’s death came suddenly on Monday Oct. 10, 1921, although she seemed in the enjoyment of her usual health on Sunday.

Those left to mourn her loss are the husband and six children, Wm. Of Greenwood; Edwin of the town of Warner; Mrs. Wm. Abel of the town of Hendren; Mrs. Robert Raatz of Columbus; Alfred of the town of Warner and Arthur on the old homestead west of Greenwood. She is also survived by 18 grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Margaret Williams of Oakland, Calif.

The age of the deceased was 68 years, 2 months and 1 day at the time of her death.

Funeral services were held last Thursday afternoon, Rev. O.J. Vriesen officiating.

Those who were here from away to attend the funeral were: Mrs. Joe Zeisel of Sheboygan; Fred Bauman of Plymouth; Robert Sheriff of Plymouth and Mrs. Robert Raatz of Columbus.
