Davel, Amelia (11 MAR 1840 - 25 AUG 1920)

Mrs. Amelia Davel was born in Germany March 11, 1840 and died at her home in this village Wednesday morning, Aug. 25, 1920. In the year 1873 she was married in Germany to John Davel, they coming to this country forty-five years ago, settling in Two Rivers, where they lived for a time, later living at Hilbert, Marshfield and Spencer. Twenty years ago they came to Loyal, Clark County, Wis. Mr. Davel preceded her in death by 14 years. She is survived by five sons, Albert, Charles and Joseph of Loyal, John of Spencer and George of Stratford, also by three brothers, John and Julius Gruman of Two Rivers and Albert Gruman of Germany, besides twenty-three grandchildren and a large circle of friends.

Mrs. Davel was remarkably active in body and bright in mind, a very industrious woman, always helping others and ready to do a kindness to anyone so that her death is felt as a personal bereavement in many homes in this vicinity.

The funeral was held from the Catholic Church Friday morning at nine o'clock, Rev. Joseph F. Stenz officiating and she was laid to rest in the Catholic Cemetery. Those from away who attended the funeral were: John Davel and family of Spencer, George Davel and family of Stratford and Messrs. John and Julius Gruman of Two Rivers.
