Ramberg, Thea (20 MAY 1857 - 4 JUL 1935)
The death of Mrs. Charles Ramberg, which occurred at her home in this city last Thursday evening, removes another early settler from Clark County. She had been in failing health for some time and passed away at the age of 78.
Funeral services were held from the home last Monday, Rev. Anderson of Curtiss officiating. Her body was interred in the family lot in the Thorp Cemetery.
Thea Mahlin was born in New Hope, Portage Co., Wis., May 20, 1857. At the age of 21 she was married to Charles Ramberg of Stevens Point. For two years after her marriage she was employed as cook in a lumber camp near Tomahawk, where her husband also worked. Then they moved to St. Croix Co. where they lived on a farm for a number of years. Forty-one years ago they moved to a farm near Thorp, which is now owned by two of their sons.
Besides her husband she is survived by seven children: Mrs. Ole Skogstad of Stanley; Oscar and Charles of Thorp; Edwin of Reseburg; Miss William Sommers of Neenah; Mrs. Henry Rossman of Reseburg; and Mrs. Henry Becker of Brillion.
Mrs. Ramberg was a type of woman who was capable of adapting herself to the conditions which confronted the early settlers in this state. She was a dutiful wife and mother, who held the loved and respect of the communities in which she spent her life. Fond recollections among those who knew her best will long linger in their memories.
