Tuttle, Olive (21 FEB 1907 - 5 JAN 1930)

Mrs. Claude B. Tuttle died at Milwaukee, Sunday, Jan. 5, 1930, after an illness covering about four months of ulcers of the stomach. She became suddenly ill at that time and was immediately operated on and seemed to gain, but on Dec. 16th, she was again operated on for the same trouble but of no avail for on Jan. 5th, her troubles ended in death. At no time during her illness did she give up hope of recovery. A firm determinations and a very pronounced will power were noticeable to all those interest in her, and especially to the physician in charge.

The body was brought to Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.) Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, at 2 o’clock, she was laid to rest from the evangelical Salem Church, Rev. P.F. Walter officiating. Cecil Oehler, Dewey Oehler, Day Oehler, Francis Tuttle, Otto Jacobson and Ed Tischendorf acted as pallbearers and Agnes Sauter, Tillie and Elsie Kallep and Gretchen Hennlich were the flower girls.

Olive Oehler, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.H. Oehler, of the town of Holton, was born at Thompson, Iowa, Feb. 21, 1907 and was 22 years, 10 months and 11 days old at the time of death. She came with her parents, brothers and sisters, to Dorchester in 1919. Three years she spent in the Dorchester High School, jolly, friendly, a favorite of all, and a very diligent student. On Oct. 9, 1924, she was married to Claude B. Tuttle, of Sand Rock, and they lived there three years when they moved to Milwaukee where they have since resided.

Two children were born to them, Elroy, 3 years and 11 months old, and Bonny Lou, 19 months old, who with her husband, survive.

She is one of eleven children and the first to break the family circle.

The bereaved family, besides her parents, consists of 5 brothers and sisters, Cecil H. Oehler of Park Falls, Mrs. Otto Jacobson of Forest City, Iowa, C.D. Oehler and Mrs. Edw. Tischendorf of Appleton, and Ruby, Alta, and Orval who are still at home. All were present at the funeral except her brother V.I. Oehler of Caldwell, Iowa.

A large host of Dorchester friends who lived her too will sadly miss her and mingle their tears of sympathy with those bereaved. May God Comfort them a only He can.
