Theilig, Christina (7 AUG 1863 - 5 OCT 1919)

Miss Christina Theilig, daughter of Charles Theilig of the town of Colby, Clark County, Wis., passed away at the state asylum for the insane at Wausau, Sunday afternoon, Oct. 5, 1919, of cancer of the liver and kidneys.

The deceased was born at Sheboygan, Aug. 7, 1863, and came with her parents to this locality 43 years ago. Some twenty-six years ago her mind became affected and she was taken to the state institution at Mendota. After being cared for at that place several years it was apparent that her case was incurable and she was transferred to Wausau, where the unfortunate was obliged to spend the remainder of her days.

Her remains were brought from Wausau to the home of her sister, Mrs. Gust Erdman in the town of Colby on Tuesday by Undertaker F. W. Lulloff of this city, who was in charge of the funeral.

She is survived by her aged father, three brothers, Herman, Phillip and George, and two sisters, Mrs. Gust Erdman and Miss Amelia Theilig, all of the town of Colby. Her mother died nine years ago.

The funeral was held today from the Lutheran Church in Green Grove and the burial took place in Colby Cemetery, the services being conducted by Rev. Aug. Behrendt.
