Rosolack, Emilia (17 FEB 1861 - 5 AUG 1914)

Our community was shocked soon after noon Wednesday by the sad news that Mrs. Frank Rosolack had received the final summons. Mrs. Rosolack had not been feeling well for some time past and for a day or two had been confined to her bed. Her condition was not considered serious. Shortly before noon she was feeling better and was quite cheerful. She was stricken with paralysis of the heart and expired almost instantly. Her family and relatives were notified and have gathered here for the funeral, which according to present arrangements, will be held at the Reformed Church Saturday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock. Interment will be in the Mentor Cemetery. Mr. Rosolack and family are nearly prostrated by the sorrow that has entered this home, and the sympathies of the entire community are extended to them.

The funeral of Mrs. Frank Rosolack, whose sudden death was noted in the last issue, was held at St. John's Reformed Church last Saturday afternoon, the Rev. H. G. Schmid officiating. A large congregation assembled to pay the last tribute of respect to the deceased, and during the hour of the service all the business places in the village were closed. The remains were laid at rest in the Mentor Cemetery.

Those from away who came to attend the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Mosler and Adolph Roller of Muskegon, Mich.; Mrs. Schultz of Watertown, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. George Wolfe of La Crosse; Mrs. E. G. Rosolack and son Max, Will Rosolack and family, and Aug. Rosolack and family of Eau Claire; besides a host of friends from Garden Valley and Alma Center.

One of the sad circumstances of the burial was the inability of Mr. Rosolack to attend, he being seriously ill at the time, from the shock of his wife's death.

Emilia Steinke was born in Germany Feb. 17, 1861, and died at Humbird, Aug. 5, 1914, at the age of 53 years, 5 months and 17 days. When quite young she came with her parents to America, settling in Milwaukee, where she grew to womanhood, and was united in marriage with Mr. John Roller. Two children were born to this union: Adolph Roller, whose home is now in Muskegon, Mich., and Margrette, now Mrs. E. G. Rosolack of Eau Claire. They lived in Milwaukee for a number of years, then moved to South Dakota, and from there to La Crosse, where her husband died. A few years later she married Frank Rosolack, who had been bereft of his first wife, a sister of the deceased. Their marriage was solemnized in La Crosse, where Mr. Rosolack then lived, and some thirteen years ago they came to Garden Valley, Jackson Co., and for the last four years have resided in the village.

She leaves to mourn her death her husband; two children, before mentioned; five step-children: Adolph and John of this vicinity, Will of Eau Claire, Mrs. George Wolfe of La Crosse, and Mrs. Amelia Jacobson of Chicago; and three sisters: Mrs. Mary Mosler of Muskegon, Mich., Mrs. August Brandt and Mrs. Emma Thompson of Milwaukee.

Mrs. Rosolack was a woman endowed with those qualities that endeared her to those near to her. She was industrious and faithful in the performances of every duty. She was devoted to her family, living a life of a dutiful wife and loving mother, while to her neighbors and friends she was ever kind and obliging. Incessantly she toiled and labored for those whom she loved, until death closed her activities.
