Visger, Sarah (20 SEP 1835 - 26 JAN 1914)
Mrs. M. V. Visger died on Monday morning, Jan. 26, 1914, at half past one after a lingering illness of a complication of diseases and old age.
The deceased was born in New York on Sept. 20, 1835, and left for Wisconsin when but eleven years of age with her parents and settled in Dodge County. She was married to Mr. Visger on Christmas Day in 1856 and came to Clark County, Wis. with her husband thirty-eight years ago and settled between Granton and Neillsville, where Mr. Visger operated a sawmill up to about eleven years ago, when they moved here.
She was always ready to lend a helping hand in time of need both in acts of kindness and in words.
She who has gone forth could not be supported on her solitary path by an earthly friend. The husband with a devotion few men are capable of, whose strength was given sweetly and tenderly to this precious invalid, whose heroic devotion never faltered, could not detain her by the clasp of earthly love.
She leaves to mourn her loss a husband and one son.
The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church yesterday afternoon at two o'clock and the remains buried in the Loyal Cemetery.
