Hofmann, Moritz (18 JUN 1862 - 2 APR 1933)
Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Peace Evangelical Church for Moritz K. Hofmann, who passed away last Sunday at his Medford home. Death was due to diabetes and dropsy. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. G.F. Hahn and burial took place in the Peace Cemetery with Emil Pudleiner, Edward, Emil, Albert, Ernest and Henry Hofmann acting as pallbearers.
Moritz Hofmann was born June 18, 1862 in Seiferdorf Republic, Saxon, Germany, and was 70 years, 8 months and 14 days old at time of death. He grew to young manhood there, coming to the United States in 1887. He purchased a farm near Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.) and made his home there until 1926, when he moved to Medford. In 1892 he was united in marriage to Miss Bertha F. Lessman at Rib Lake. Eight children were born to this happy union, all of whom with their mother, survive him.
Besides his wife, Mr. Hofmann leaves two daughters, Mrs. Edward Schoof and Miss Elsie Hofmann of Milwaukee; six sons, Herman, William, Paul, Fred, John and Elmer Hofmann, all of Dorchester, and one grandchild. Besides his immediate family he leaves two sisters and a brother in Germany, and two brothers, here, Robert of Medford, and Rhinehold of Curtiss, to mourn his loss.
Mr. Hofmann was well known and liked by his many neighbors and friends in this vicinity during his long stay here and it is with regret that they note his passing. Ever a loving husband and kind father he will be greatly missed by his family. Their many friends join us in offering deepest sympathy to them in this sad hour.
Out of town relatives attending the services were Mr. and Mrs. Henry Berg and son, Lloyd, Mrs. Ida Hofmann and son, Carl, of Lake, Minnesota, Mrs. Charles Berg and son, Elmer, Mrs. Herman Yorde and Mr. and Mrs. Albert Meyers of Marshfield.
