Mrs. Henry Krause, nee Voss, was born in Pomerania, Germany, on the 10th day of September, 1876. In early infancy she was baptized in the name of the Triune God and then later instructed in fundamental doctrine of the Christian Religion and confirmed in the Ev. Lutheran Church , of which Church she was a member at the time of her departure. When 5 years of age, in company with her parents, she migrated to the U. S. A., coming to Waukesha and then moving to Clark County, where she has resided for about 32 years. In 1896 she was married to Gustav Kurzheim, which union was blessed with seven children. In 1909 he preceded her to eternity. On the 16th day of March, 1915 she was married to Henry Krause, which union was blessed with one son. During the Christmas holidays the deceased was taken ill and on December 29th she was removed to St. Joseph’s hospital Marshfield for treatment. On Monday she expressed the desire to receive Holy Communion which was administered to her and having commended herself to God she was ready for whatever might come to pass. Her illness was but of a short duration. On Wednesday morning, At 10 A. M. she was called by her heavenly Father out of time into eternity from this world of suffering to a better world as we have all reason to believe.
