Schmitz, Anna M. (14 MAR 1814 - 6 FEB 1907)
Mrs. Anna Marie Schmitz, a resident of this village (Loyal, Clark County, Wis.) for the past eleven years, died at the home of her son, John Schmitz, on Wednesday evening, Feb. 6, 1907, after an illness of only a few days, at the age of ninety-three years. She was taken sick with pneumonia on Tuesday and died on Wednesday.
Mrs. Schmitz was born in Koelen, Germany on March 14, 1814, and was married to P. Schmitz in 1884. They were blessed with one child, Jacob Schmitz of Milwaukee before coming to this country in 1852, settling in Waukesha Co. in this state, where they resided until her husband died in 1866 at the age of fifty-five years, since which time the deceased made her home with her son, John Schmitz of this village, who located in Monroe Co. at Cashton in this state in 1878 and came to this place in 1895, where she resided up to the time of her demise. She was the mother of seven children, two sons, Jacob Schmitz of Milwaukee and John Schmitz of this village, and two daughters, Mrs. John Bernardie and Mrs. Katie Epge of Milwaukee, survive her. Besides the above mentioned, nine grandchildren and other relatives mourn her departure
The floral offerings were profuse and elaborate, among them being a handsome cross, an offering of the Altar Society, who were a great aid in consoling the afflicted family.
She was a woman possessed of rare qualities, ever anxious to make friends and even in her old age was always pleasant and had a kind word and sympathized with those who came to her in time of trouble. She was a true Christian and always upheld the church of which she was a devoted member and possessed an unusual pleasant disposition. Her loss will be deeply felt by her many friends in this vicinity.
The funeral services were held at the Catholic Church at ten o'clock and the remains laid to rest in the Catholic Cemetery.
The afflicted relatives desire The Tribune to express for them their heartfelt thanks to the many friends who gave them such kind assistance and especially to the Alter Society for their untiring efforts on their behalf.
