Vetter, Caroline (1832? - 19 NOV 1905)

Mrs. Caroline Vetter was called to her heavenly home Nov. 19, 1905, after being subjected to an operation in a Chicago Hospital.

Mrs. Vetter was 73 years of age and had been ailing for some time, and in hopes of prolonging her days went to the Passayant hospital in Chicago, where an operation was performed. She was, however, unable to withstand the shock and death came.

Her daughter, Mrs. J. W. Filber and husband were at the bedside when the grim messenger called. The brought the remains to the home of Frank Vetter, a son, of this city (Loyal, Clark County, Wis.) and the funeral was held at the German Lutheran Church Wednesday, the Rev. Lange officiating. Interment was made in the Loyal Cemetery.

Mrs. Caroline Vetter was born in Germany and was married to John Vetter in that country. In 1854 they came to America, locating at Milwaukee. After living there four years they moved to Washington Co. It was there that their 15 children were born, eight of who survive. They are Frank, William, John, Charles, Ida, Emma, Bertha and Anna.

John Vetter and his wife came to Clark County, Wis. 22 years ago, where Mr. Vetter died. Mrs. Vetter continued to reside here until four years ago, when she went to Walworth to reside with daughter, Mrs. Filber. It was there she became ill and went to Chicago.
