Lamer, Emma (24 AUG 1869 - 6 MAY 1936)

Funeral services for Mrs. Joseph Lamer Sr., who passed away at her home at Tomahawk, Wisconsin, May 6, 1936, were conducted at the Congregational Church at Tomahawk Saturday, May 9 at 1:30 o’clock with the Rev. Anderson in charge. Services were held at the home at 1 o’clock.

Interment was made in the Greenwood Cemetery at Tomahawk with Kurt and Charles Beyreis of Wausau, Frank Hollmann of Dorchester, Peter Denzin of Milwaukee, Casey Wilkins and Chris Jensen of Heafford Junction acting as pallbearers. Flower girls were seven granddaughters, Mrs. Lloyd Randall, Marshfield, Misses Resina, Sarah and Marian Stelzel, Dorchester, Miss Rita Lamer, Heafford Junction, and Miss Ruth and Adeline Denzin, Abbotsford, Wis.

Emma Denzin was born in Stetin, Germany, the daughter of Albert and Bertha (Winkel) Denzin, on Aug. 24, 1869 and was 66 years, 8 months and 13 days old at time of death. At the age of 13 she came to the United States with her parents and, after a short stay at Kankakee, Ill, they moved to their farm in the town of Holton (Marathon Co., Wis.), six miles southeast of the village. On Jan. 1, 1889 she was united in marriage to Joseph Lamer at Dorchester, Wis. After spending about a year at Ironwood, Mich., Mr. and Mrs. Lamer purchased a farm three and one-half miles east of the village in the town of Holton where they lived until 1925, when they moved to their present home at Tomahawk.

Eight children were born to the Lamers, three of them preceding their mother in death. Mrs. Lamer leaves her husband, three daughters, Mrs. Louis Stelzel, Dorchester, Mrs. Wm. Daley, Abbotsford and Mrs. Richard Bahr, Monroe; and two sons, Joseph and Herman Lamer, both of Heafford Junction. She also is survived by her step-father, Fred Denzin of Abbotsford, two sisters, Mrs. Frank Bartnik, Dorchester, and Mrs. Frank Zaborka, Abbotsford, five brothers, Herman Denzin, Mukwanago, Paul, Fred Otto and Leo Denzin, all of Abbotsford, and sixteen grandchildren.

Mrs. Lamer was one of Dorchester pioneers, having lived here forty-two years, and her vast circle of friends here join us in offering sincerest sympathy to her family in their loss. She was a member of the Peace Evangelical Church and Women’s Union for 25 years.
