Ehlert, Hannah W. (29 JUN 1859 - 17 JAN 1936)

Hannah Wilhelmina Caroline Ehlert, daughter of August and Wilhelmina Ehlert (deceased), was born June 29, 1859 in Schoenhagen, Pomerania, Germany. She was baptized during infancy in the Name of the Triune God.

During 1880 she emigrated with her parents to the U.S.A. living for a short period at Iron Ridge, Wisconsin. During the year 1882 she with her parents moved to Clark County, located in the Town of Loyal, and resided there up to the time of her death.

When the deceased was only five years old she became seriously ill. Her recovery from this illness was accompanied with a total loss of hearing. She did not allow this unfortunate circumstance to make her a burden in the household. Instead, she put forth earnest efforts to be useful; helping with the large amount of work to be done in a farm home.

Miss Ehlert became ill last fall, never recovering from the same. On Friday, Jan. 17th, ay 8:00 P. M. she passed into the great beyond, having attained the age of 76 years, 6 months and 18 days. That she was called from this earthly life to eternity into a blessed life, we have every reason to hope.

The departed loved one leaves to mourn their loss, a sister, Mrs. Wm. Neitzel, Town of Loyal, a brother, August Ehlert, Beaver Dam, other relatives and friends. Two brothers, Carl and William Ehlert, preceded her in death.

Funeral services were held at the farm home at 1:00 P.M. Tuesday, Jan. 21st., followed by services in the Trinity Lutheran Church here at 2:00 P.M., the Rev. H. F. Leschensky officiating. Burial was made in the Pine Grove Cemetery. Pall bearers were John Knoll, Frank Lindekugel, Oscar Lindekugel, Alfred Oestreich, Carl Schoengrund and Frank Stange.

We offer heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved.
