Thierbach, Fredericke (17 APR 1864 - 18 MAR 1936)

Funeral services will be conducted Saturday afternoon for Mrs. Henry Thierbach, who passed away at her home here in the village (Dorchester, Clark Co., Wis.) Wednesday at 5:50 p.m., March 18, 1936, following a lingering illness. Mrs. Thierbach and been ailing for about a year and has been in bed the past four weeks. Death was due to dropsy and complications. Services, with the Rev. J.R. Kalwitz in charge, will be held at the house at 1:30 and at Peace Evangelical Church at 2 p.m.

Interment will be made in the Peace Cemetery with four sons, Herman and William Hinges, Rudolph and Albert Ortlieb, and two grandsons, Clarence Paul and Norman Marcotte, acting as pallbearers.

Fredericke Schauland was born in Germany April 17, 1864 and was seventy-one years, eleven months and one day old at time of death. In 1873 she came to the United States and settled with her family in Sheboygan Co., Wis. Her marriage to Emil Hinges took place there in 1885, shortly after which they moved to Curtiss (Clark Co.), where Mr. Hinges died in 1891. Five children were born to the Hinges’, all of whom survive their parents.

In 1895 Mrs. Hinges was married to Gottlieb Ortlieb and moved to their farm home two miles north of the village, where they lived until Mr. Ortlieb’s death occurred on June 17, 1917. Their four children also survive.

In July of 1921 Mrs. Ortlieb was married to Henry Thierbach of Colby, and after living at Colby for a few years, the Thierbachs moved to Dorchester, Wis. They have been residents here for the past thirteen years.

Always a sweet and capable woman, Mrs. Thierbach endeared herself to Dorchester people in a short while. Her genial good nature made her a desirable companion as her membership in the Peace Church and the Women’s Union showed. A vast host of friends and relatives will sadly miss her and will join in paying their last tribute to her character this week.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Thierbach leaves nine children, William Hinges, Owen; Mrs. William Ludwig, nee Emma, Chippewa Falls; Herman Hinges, town of Mayville; Mrs. George Pattitz, nee Ida, Abbotsford; Mrs. Julius Paul, nee Bertha, town of Little Black; Mrs. Ed Marcotte, nee Selma, town of Little black; Rudolph Ortlieb, Dorchester; Albert Ortlieb, town of Little Black; and Mrs. Horace Schag, nee Amanda, of Chippewa Falls. She also leaves 18 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.

All of the children will attend the services Saturday and several of her children have spent the last few weeks caring for her during her illness.

Their many friends join us in offering deepest sympathy to the entire family during their hour of sorrow.
