La Budde, Sarah (1852? - 22 FEB 1918)

Although inevitable, it is with regret that the Phonograph records the passing of Mrs. Sarah La Budde, one of Colby's long time and most respected residents, final dissolution coming last Friday, Feb. 22, 1918. Deceased was in the sixty-fifth years of her life and had been a widow for many years.

Mrs. La Budde came to this city (Colby, Wis.) from Marshfield twenty-three years ago and has ever been prominent in social and church circles until within the past two years, during which period the condition of her health has been such as to make it impossible for her to do active work.

The immediate cause of death was chronic Bright's disease.

Of the immediate relatives who survive her there are three daughters, Mrs. William Henkel of Park Falls, Mrs. H. J. Blanchard of Dickinson, N.D., and Miss Bertha, who is at home in this city. She also leaves one sister, Mrs. Mary Gohr, who resides in Schreiber, Ontario.

Funeral services were held from the home and from the Methodist Church Tuesday afternoon and interment made in the Colby Cemetery.

The grade schools of the city were closed Tuesday afternoon out of respect for Miss Bertha La Budde, who is teacher in one of the grades.
