Welchel, Anna M. (25 APR 1884 - 25 APR 1920)

Anna Mary Winscher was born on April 25, 1884, in Kolozek, Germany. In the year 1885, the family immigrated to America and located near Leland, Sauk Co., Wis., a few years later moving to Nettleton's Corners. When about sixteen years of age she went to Chicago, where she worked her way through school, after which she was employed as stenographer and bookkeeper for several years. In 1916 she was joined in the holy bonds of matrimony to Herbert E. Welchel, after which they removed to Indianapolis, Ind., where they made their home until her untimely death on Sunday morning, April 25, 1920, after a lingering illness of a complication following the influenza. She leaves to mourn her departure, besides her husband, her mother, two sisters, Mrs. Henry Hanusa and Mrs. George Galster, and two brothers, Charles and Gottlieb Winscher.

The remains were brought here (Humbird, Clark County, Wis.) Tuesday morning and taken to the home of her mother. Funeral services were held in the church at Alma Center on Thursday afternoon, Rev. O. W. Hillman of Eau Claire, officiating. Interment was in the Alma Center Cemetery. A profusion of beautiful flowers covering the casket were a silent tribute from her many friends.

Relatives who came to attend the services were Mrs. Thresa from Sauk Co., and Mr. and Mrs. Welfel of Racine.
