Ruprich, Anna (2 JAN 1835 - 19 JUL 1930)

Mrs. Wenzel Ruprich died at the home of her son, Joe Ruprich, Saturday, July 19th, 1930, of heart trouble due to old age, for she had reached the good old age of 95 years, 6 months and 17 days. The funeral was conducted Monday, July 21, Rev. Bizer, her beloved pastor for so many years, officiating, and Frank Engel, Herman Fisse, Julius Paul, Wenzel Peissig, Frank and Joe Pueschner acting as pallbearers. Hildegard Ruprich, Elva and Elverda Bruesewitz, Evelyn Wilke, Lois Wolf and Lucille Tauchen were the flower girls.

Anna Kraut was born Jan. 2, 1835, in Tyssa, Bohemia, and in 1861 she was married to Wenzel Ruprich. Three children were born to them, Frank, Anna and Joe. In 1887 the Ruprichs came to the United States and lived one year at Westboro, then came here (Dorchester, Clark Co., Wis.) and settled in the town of Little Black (Taylor Co.) where their youngest son, Joe, is now living. The oldest son, Frank, moved to Westboro where he has a general store, and the daughter, Anna, married Vincent Pueschner, and died the same day her father did in 1910, on New Year’s Day. So it fell to Joe and his family to care for his mother which was a joy indeed for she was such a sweet old lady. Everyone who knew her loved here and the children all called her grandma, and any little favor at her hand was prized above all else.

She was of that sturdy stock we call our pioneers, which we prize so highly and it is with sad hearts we see them leaving us one by one, but our loss is their gain, for they have gone to their reward. She leaves to mourn her loss, her sons, already mentioned, 9 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren, two of the grandchildren and 5 of the great-grandchildren live in Los Angeles, Calif., so were unable to be here, but the rest were all present at the funeral.

Those from away who were here were Frank Ruprich and family and Emil Wesley, Westboro; Mrs. Vincent Boehm, Curtiss; Arthur Bruesewitz and children of Auburndale, besides a number of friends from other points. A host of friends join us in offering our sincerest sympathy.
