Zarnke, Minnie (10 APR 1834 - 5 OCT 1917)

Mrs. Karl Zarnke died Friday, Oct. 5, 1917, at the home of her son William, in the town of Hull, Marathon Co., Wis., at the age of eighty-three.

Minnie Becker was born in Germany April 10, 1834, and was married to Karl Zarnke before they came to this country in 1882. They lived for five years on a farm near Brillion before coming to the town of Hull in 1887, settling on the farm where she died. Her husband passed from this life about ten years ago.

Deceased is survived by two sons, William of the town of Hull, Charles of Wausau, and one daughter, Mrs. August Brandes of Wausau.

The people of this community (Colby, Wis.) will join with this paper in extending sincere sympathy to the surviving sons and daughter in the loss of their mother, who had lived a long and useful life.

The funeral was held Monday afternoon from St. John's Ev. Church, in this city, Rev. A. Peper officiating. Burial took place in the Colby Cemetery.
