Rahm, Elizabeth (25 JUN 1841 - 6 AUG 1917)

Mrs. Elizabeth Rahm was born June 25, 1841 in the Province of Grunderweiler Rheinpfolz, Germany, and died at her home near Veefkind Aug. 6, 1917, aged 76 years, 1 month and 12 days.

On April 7, 1863 she was united in marriage to Peter Rahm. In the year 1881 she immigrated to America and settled in the town of Sherman, Clark County, Wis., where she has since resided.

Unto this union seven children were born, two of which have gone to the great beyond and her aged husband, who died six years ago. Five children are left to mourn their mother's death, three boys and two daughters, Karl, August, Edward, Bertha and Anna.

The deceased was a kind and loving mother, a good neighbor and a pleasant lady to meet. The end was as peaceful as the close of a beautiful day, when daylight fades into night with increasing loveliness. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Funeral services were held at the Lutheran Salem Church at Veefkind, Wednesday, Aug. 8th, conducted by the family pastor Rev. B. F. Matter and assisted by Rev. E. Kemena of Loyal. The remains were laid to rest in the Salem Cemetery at Veefkind. The children have the sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement.
