Funeral services were held at the St. Louis Catholic Church Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock for Mrs. Joseph Lang who passed away at her home four and one-half miles northwest of the village Saturday afternoon at 3:30. The Rev. Clement Hines Officiated and burial was made at the Memorial Cemetery with Joseph Kronschnabl, A.P. Mill.., Frank Stoiber, Frank Engel, Joseph Ruprich, and F.N. Scholz acting as pallbearers.

Mrs. Lang has been ill for several months and except for two weeks as a patient at St. Joseph Hospital at Marshfield since January ?, 1935. Death was due to heart trouble. Last Thursday Mrs. Lang was brought to her home where she passed away Saturday.

Pauline Schoeffle was born April ?, 1874 in Austria and came to the United States at the age of twelve with her parents and settled at St. …ul where they lived for five years. The next two years were spent on the farm now owned by Herman ..lke, four miles northwest of the village (Dorchester, Clark Co., Wis.). On May 16, 1893 she was united in marriage to Joseph Lang in Dorchester in the old Catholic Church and they have resided at their farm home for the past forty-two years.

Always ready with her cheery smile and hearty laugh, Mrs. Lang won her way into the hearts of her many neighbors and acquaintances in a short time. She was a member of the St. Louis congregation and of the Christian Mothers and devotedly served her church as long as she was able. Not only will she be sorely missed by her friends and neighbors, but she will be even more greatly missed by her family, to whom she gave unceasingly of her love and care.

Besides her husband she leaves five daughters, Mrs. John (Elizabeth) Ottoson, Miss Anna Lang, and Mrs. Frank (Agnes) Schrant of Milwaukee, Vera, Dorchester, and Mrs. John (Olive) Ludwig, Saskatchewan, Canada, and one son, Frank Lang, of Dorchester, Wis. She also leaves fourteen grandchildren and a host of friends and other relatives to mourn her departure.

Out of town relatives attending the services were Miss Anna Lang, Mrs. John Ottoson and family, Mrs. Paul Pudleiner, and Mrs. Frank Schrant, Milwaukee, and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Krohne of West Allis.

The many friends of the Langs join us in offering them sincerest sympathy in their hour of sorrow.
