Funeral services for Mrs. Augusta Bahl, whose death was chronicled in this paper last week, were held at the St. John’s Evangelical church Friday afternoon, January 10th, Rev. G. H. Hahn officiating, and internment was made in the Colby cemetery. The body was taken to the J. H. Dessloch home when in Colby from where the funeral procession started. Out of town people here for the funeral also stayed at the J. H. Dessloch home.
The deceased was born in Posen, Germany, on Nov. 23. 1850, thus reaching the age of seventy-nine years, one month and fifteen days. She came to the United States in 1868, and lived at Green Bay until 1888 when she came to Colby. Several years ago, she moved to Des Moines, Iowa, and lived with her daughter, Miss Wanda, who is employed there. She passed on to the distant shore January, 7, 1930, hypertention and auricular fibralation being the cause of her departure.
She leaves three daughters to mourn her death, her husband having preceded her to the heavenly goal. The three daughters are Miss Elizabeth, Milwaukee; Mrs. Frank Clabots, DePere, Wisconsin; Miss Wanda Bahl, Des Moines, Iowa.
Out of town people here for the funeral were Mr. Frank Clabots, DePere; Miss Wanda Bahl, Des Moines; Mrs. L. F. Diddle, Marshfield; and Mrs. Blaer and Mrs. Johnston, Abbotsford, Wis. Miss Wanda was the only daughter here for the funeral, the other two being ill at the time.
Friends and neighbors in Colby will remember her as a kindly old lady and faithful member of her church and a good Christian. Her cheerful, beautiful, helpful life, her devotion as wife and mother and her kindness to everybody will long linger as a fragrant memory to those who knew her well.
