Heidtke, Esther C.F. (2 JUL 1888 – 2 MAY 1930)
Mrs. Otto Heidtke passed suddenly away Saturday morning, May 2, after an illness of but three days duration of pneumonia. She had an attack of flu and it suddenly developed into pneumonia and her heart couldn’t stand the strain. The funeral was held Wednesday forenoon at 11 o’clock at the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Rev. Brandt officiating, and then the remains were taken to Chippewa Falls for burial.
Esther Cora Frieda Bitter was born July 2, 1888 and was 41 years, 10 months and 1 day at time of death. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Bitter, who came here (Dorchester, Clark Co., Wis.) from Plymouth around 1900, when Esther was still a little girl. The Bitters later moved over into the western part of the country near Maplehurst and at present are living near Abbotsford, Wis.
She was united in marriage to Otto Heidtke of this village, on Dec. 28, 1916, and two daughters were born to them, Mildred, who with her father survive her, and Loretta, who passed away a few short weeks ago. She also leaves to mourn her early demise, four step-children, Mrs. Arthur Marquardt of Bloomer, Walter of Leola, S.D., and Werner and Eleanora of Cadott.
The Heidtkes have the sincere sympathy of all for death has come twice into their home circle in just a little while, first a blossom was taken to be transplanted into the gard of God, and now, the mother, whose place no one can fill, has followed, but she will not soon be forgotten for mother love and mother care reaps its own reward and the memory of her many kindnesses will live on in the hearts of those who knew her best. May God comfort as only He can, these grief stricken ones.
