Rahn, Margaret (26 AUG 1862 - 23 AUG 1932)

Funeral services for Mrs. Albert Rahn, who passed away Tuesday, Aug. 23rd, 1932 at her home north of Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.), were held Friday morning from the home and the Holway Catholic Church with Rev. Paul Pitzenberger officiating. Burial took place at the Pine Hill cemetery, with Jake, John and George Hamm, Frank Hamm, Oscar Halverson and Wm. Burnsee acting as pallbearers.

Margaret Ackerman was born Aug. 26th, 1862, at Byren, Germany, the daughter of Andrew and Dorothy Ackerman. She passed away at her farm home after an illness of three months from a complication of diseases lacking but three days of being 70 years of age. At the age of 17, she came to the United States with her parents, settling near Stetsonville, Wis.. In the summer of 1885, she was married to Albert Rahn. Immediately after their marriage the Rahns moved to their farm in the town of Hoard where they have lived the past 47 years. Four children were born to this happy union, all of whom survive their mother. Mr. Rahn passed away two years ago in December. Since Mr. Rahn’s death, Mrs. Rahn and son Albert have lived on the home farm. Mrs. Nelson, her daughter, arrived from Superior in June and carried for her mother throughout her illness.

Mrs. Rahn leaves three sons, John, Charles and Albert, and one daughter, Mrs. C.E. Nelson, Superior, to mourn her departure. She also leaves six grandchildren, John’s son, Clifford; Charley’s children, Lenore, Clayton and Wanda Rahn; and Goodwin and Margaret Nelson, Mrs. Nelson’s children, of Superior, besides a host of other relatives and friends.

A mother’s hand is stilled, a mother smile is gone, yet she lives on in the hearts of her loved ones, and for her new home is a happier one than anyone can have on this earth, they will know all was for the best, when the pain of parting has passed. Her many friends that she attracted during her lifetime shall also miss her greatly and join us in offering sincerest sympathy to the mourning ones.

Out of town relatives attending the funeral services were Mr. and Mrs. C.E. Nelson, Margaret and Goodwin, Superior; Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Voss, Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dorn and Mrs. F. Funkhauser, La Crosse; Mrs. Bertha Costella and daughter, Blanche, Bangor; Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Anderson, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Wuest, Black River Alls; and Mrs. Harold Ostlund, Superior.
