Fritz, Anna (Feb. 16,1867 - March 2,1906)

It becomes our painful duty this week to chronicle the death of Mrs. Peter Fritz who passed away Friday morning, March 2nd after an illness covering a period of nearly six weeks, her untimely demise however was a great surprise to her many friends who were not aware of the seriousness of her condition.

Mrs. Fritz whose maiden name was Anna Slagoska was born in Germany February 16,1867. She was married in 1890 ( 27 Mar 1891) to Peter Fritz, who with 7 children, survive her: Margaret 14, Anna 13, Elsie 11, Johnnie 9, Leo 8, Theodore 3, and Lila 18 months. She was a good wife and a devoted mother; the interest of her home and the welfare of her family were always her first thoughts. She had a large circle of friends and acquaintances who held her in the highest esteem.

Besides (her) husband and children she leaves a mother Mrs. Slagoska and two brothers, Mike and Frank to mourn her departure, all of whom have the sincere sympathy of everyone in the community.

The funeral was held from the residence Sunday afternoon. Father Redding of Colby performing the last sad rites after which the remains were laid to rest in the family lot in Beaver cemetery.

A large number of friends and neighbors assembled at the home to pay their respects for the departed.

The relatives from out of town who were present were: Mrs. R. E. Buchanan, Tomahawk; Miss Barbara Doll, Tomahawk; Mr. John Fritz and Mrs. J. Bruckard of Allington; and Frank Slagoska of Wausau.
