Virch, Lottie (7 JUN 1884 - 30 APR 1898)

Mr. and Mrs. A.N. Virch of Curtiss, Clark Co., Wis., have taken their beloved daughter, Lottie, to her last resting place and confided her to her Lord and Savior. Thought they regret the loss of her mortal remains they are happy to know that she died in the Lord and that she is now sitting near her Supreme Judge, and is waiting for them to come and join her in the only place of beatitude and happiness.

Lott would have been fourteen years of age, the 7th of June, next, and left many hundred young friends of her own age, and also the entire community of Curtiss and surrounding towns where she was well known as a model young girl, to mourn her loss, and we could see by the large multitude who attended her funeral that she was loved by everyone, as the church was not large enough to hold all of her friends who came to bid her last farewell.

Lottie Virch died of pneumonia, April 30th, 1898, Saturday morning at 8:20, after a short illness of three weeks; it was the third time she had had the same sickness and it had been foretold by doctors she would not live more than this age. The services was held Monday, May 2nd at 2 P.M. by Rev. W.H. Niemeyer, who spoke in the English and German languages, and also by Mr. John Berry of Dorchester, in English and Norwegian.

The singing part was executed by the members of the I.O.G.T. Lodge and Sunday School children, conducted by Mr. W. H. Niemeyer. The songs, sermons and prayers were well appreciated. Her remains were followed by the members of I.O.G.T. Lodge, of which she was a member, and also by her school mates, accompanied by their teacher, Miss N. Wicker. The pallbearers were all her school mates. Beautiful flowers were given by her school mates and the members of I.O.G.T Lodge and also by Mrs. Emma Bass, Miss Pearl Moore, Mrs. Mike Gissel, Mrs. George Thayer, Mrs. Hawks and others.

Mr. and Mrs. A.N. Virch extend their grateful thanks to the friends who kindly assisted them during the illness and after their beloved daughter’s death.
