Swieso, Frederica (14 SEP 1853 - 25 JUN 1919)
Mrs. Swieso died of heart failure last Wednesday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. James White. The news came as a shock to everyone, for while it was known that she was not well, yet she was not considered seriously ill.
Frederica Baker was born in Germany Sept. 14, 1853 and died June 25, 1919, at the age of 65 years. On Sept. 10, 1870 she was united in marriage to John Swieso at the Lutheran Evangelical Church at Columbus, Wis. To this union thirteen children were born, five of who, with her husband, preceded her in death. She leaves to mourn her loss five daughters, Mrs. H. G. Seipp and Mrs. Wm. Sanderson of Columbus, Wis., Mrs. Clarence Cole, Marshall, Wis., Mrs. C. J. Jensen, Pecatorica, Ill., and Mrs. James White of Loyal, three sons, Hobart, John and Walter of Loyal, twenty-two grandchildren, besides other relatives and a large circle of friends.
She was a loving and kind mother, always ready to sacrifice for her children and home.
The funeral services were held at the Methodist Church at 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, Rev. E. E. Strevey officiating. She was buried in the Loyal Cemetery beside her husband.
The family has the sympathy of everyone in their bereavement.
