Mrs. Otto Wehrman Dies Suddenly

Last week this column of the Gleaner contained a write-up of the 25th wedding anniversary of Mr. and mrs. Otto Wehrman, this week we are sorry to report the sudden death of Mrs. Wehrman, who died at her home three miles northwest of Greenwood early Sunday evening.

Mr. and Mrs. Wehrman and son had been guests at the Alfred Schwarze home Sunday afternoon and after supper had started walking to their farm, a distance of a mile. As they wished to get the farm chores done early that evening Mrs. Wehrman urged Mr. Wehrman and her son to walk on ahead.

After he had completed his work Mr. Wehrman noticed that Mrs. Wehrman had not returned. He started toward the Schwarze farm and found his wife lying unconscious on the road, as the result of a stroke. A doctor was called but she died shortly after his arrival, without having regained consciousness.

Mrs. Wehrman, nee Elizabeth Zell, was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, June 25, 1891. Her marriage to Otto Wehrman took place February 16, 1910, at the present farm home.

She is survived by her husband and ten children, Alma and Ida of Milwaukee, Henry, Alvin, Albert, Leo, Marion, Arnold, Gladys and Virginia at home. She also leaves two brothers, Wm. Zell of the Town of Warner and one brother who lives out west.

Funeral services will be held this afternoon, at one o'clock from the home and at two o'clock from the West Side Immanuel Reformed church, Rev. Paul Franzmeier officiating. Burial will take place in the West Side cemetery.
