Mrs. Louise Emilie Schoengrund was born in Germany, Aug. 17, 1857. In early childhood she was baptized in the Evangelical Lutheran faith, and later confirmed this faith. She remained a faithful member until her death Sept. 23, 1938.

She was married to Friedrich Wilhelm Schoengrund in 1880 and in 1887 the couple with their two children came to this country, settling at Lomira in Dodge county.

They moved to the town of Loyal in 1893 to a farm they purchased and on which they for 45 years.

Mrs. Schoengrund had recovered from a siege of illness, and apparently was in good health when she died suddenly at the home of her daughter at the age of 81 years, 1 month and 6 days. Death was due to heart failure.

Mesdames Philip Capelle, Julius Ehlert, Fred Clouse, Herman Konshak, Frank Stange, and Herman Lieske were in charge of flowers
