Plier, Anna (30 OCT 1866 - 31 MAY 1936)

Funeral services were conducted at the St. Louis Catholic Church this Friday morning at 9:30 for Mrs. John Plier, who died at her home in the village (Dorchester, Clark Co., Wis.) Sunday evening at 7 o’clock following a lingering illness. Mrs. Plier had been ailing the past two years and death was due to heart trouble and apoplexy. The Rev. Fr. John Novak of the St. Bernard’s Church at Abbotsford was in charge of the mass and interment at the Dorchester Memorial Cemetery, with William Schumacher, A.P. Miller, Frank Engel, Theodore Decker, Joseph Kronschnabl and John Schmitt acting as pallbearers.

Anna Biver was born in Nispels, Luxemburg, on Oct. 30, 1866, and was 69 years, 7 months and 7 days old at time of death. She came to the United States as a young woman a short while before her marriage to John Plier in 1891 at Kimberly. The Pliers spent the next ten years at Kimberly, leaving for their farm home one mile north and one mile east of Dorchester, in 1901. After living there for thirty years, Mr. and Mrs. Plier moved to their present home in the village where they have lived the past five years.

Eleven children were born to them, the son dying in infancy. Mrs. Pliers is survived by her husband, seven daughters, Mrs. Anton Carlson, nee Thresia, Abbotsford; Mrs. Oscar Lilyoth, nee Marguerite, Benett; Mrs. Walter May, nee Kathryn, and Mrs. John Wolf, nee Anna, both of Marshfield; Mrs. Carl Huson, nee Mary, of Minneapolis; Mrs. John Simstad, nee Laura, of Superior; and Miss Lucy Plier, of Milwaukee, and three sons, George, Francis, and Frank Plier, all of Chicago. She also leaves two sisters and one brother in Luxemburg, and twenty-one grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

With her sweet disposition and kind heartedness, Mrs. Plier succeeded in gathering a large group of friends around her who will miss her almost as greatly as will her family, for whom she spent a lifetime of devotion and care. Their many friends join us in offering the family deepest sympathy in their sorrow.
