Wich, Ottelie (19 Nov. 1876 - 30 Jan. 1935)

Mrs. John Wich of Pine Valley died at Neillsville hospital Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 30, aged 58 years.

Mr. and Mrs. Wich lived on a side road east from Pine Valley town hall, and this road not being open Mrs. Wich had to be brought out to the hospital by a round-about road after she had suffered a week from a stricture of an intestine. An emergency operation gave her temporary relief, but she failed to recover her strength.

Ottelie Grauman was born in Russia, Nov. 19, 1876. From there she emigrated to Colorado and about three years ago came to Clark County with her husband, John Wich, went to live on a small farm in Pine Valley.

She is survived by her husband, two daughters by a former marriage, one living in Texas and one in Colorado, one sister in Germany and one in Latvia.

The funeral was held at Schiller’s Funeral Home Monday, Rev. A. Laesch of Granton officiating.
