Schmirler, Mary (24 JAN 1852 - 5 DEC 1912)

Mrs. Mary Schmirler was born on the 24th day of January, 1852, at Eschwege, Hessen, Germany, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wagester. At the age of six years she came with her parents to Canada. In 1868 she came to Stevensville, Outagamie Co., Wis., where she was united in the bonds of holy matrimony to Joseph Schmirler, June 12th, 1876. The young couple moved to Seymour, where they lived for seven years, coming from there to the town of Frankfort, Marathon Co., settling on the farm where she died.

On Tuesday, Nov. 26th, 1912, Mrs. Schmirler received a stroke of paralysis and nine days later, on Thursday, Dec. 5th, 1912, in the morning, she died, a true Christian and a believer in Jesus Christ her Savior, aged 60 years, 10 months and 11 days.

The funeral was held from the Lutheran Church in Wein, conducted by Rev. Karl Schmalz, in the presence of her many friends. Peace be with her.

Mary Schmirler would be my Great Grandmother. My Father Roman Joseph Schmirler was the oldest son of Walter who was the youngest child of Joe and Mary. Great Grandfather Joe went back to Canada with Walter after Mary's death. Walter my Grandfather was married to Justina Sass in Canada. They migrated back to Wausau, Wi in the late 30's. My father Roman along with Clarence, Norbert and Valarie were born in Canada and migrated back to Wausau also. Great Grandfather Joe is buried in Bruno, Sask Canada.
