Boettcher, Anna (1 DEC 1889 - 3 DEC 1936)

Funeral services were held Monday at the home at 1 o’clock and at the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church at 1:30 for Mrs. Max Boettcher who passed away at a Madison hospital Thursday morning at 8:30, Dec 3, after an illness of a few months. Services were conducted by Rev. J. Brandt and interment was made in the Spencer Cemetery with O.A. Violand, Albert Fenske, Arnold Kussrow, Herbert Baehr, Bernard Oelke and William Kellner acting as pallbearers. Flower girls were the Misses Gertrude Durheim and Edna Bahlow.

Mrs. Boettcher had been ailing for several months but her condition became serious only a few weeks ago. She was taken to Madison on Nov. 24. Death was attributed to bronchial pneumonia.

Anna Winter was born at Altamont, Ill., on Dec. 1, 1889, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Julius Winter and was 47 years and 3 days old at tiem of death. She grew to womanhood at her home and on Jan. 21, 1920 she was united in marriage to Max Boettcher of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.) at Altamont. Shortly after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Boettcher moved to their farm home one and one-half miles northeast of Dorchester on Highway 13, where they have lived for the past 16 years.

Two children were born to them, one daughter, Aurelia, and one son, Walter, who with their father survive. Mrs. Boettcher also leaves her father, Julius Winter, one sister, Mrs. Herman Durheim of Altamont, Ill., and four brothers, Bernard and Walter Winter of Altamont; Ernest Winter of Springfield, Ill., and Martin Winter of Beason, Ill.

A faithful member of the Lutheran Church and always a pleasant and friendly woman, Mrs. Boettcher had a large circle of friends who sympathized with her in her illness and who were saddened by her passing. They join us in offering deepest sympathy to the family in their bereavement.

Among the relatives from away to attend the services were Julius Winter and sons, Bernard and Walter, Mrs. Herman Durheim and daughter, Gertrude, of Altamont, Ill.; Ernest Winter of Springfield, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. William Kleinschmidt, Mrs. Lutzgesell and son, Adam, Mr. and Mrs. John Luther and son of Loyal; Mrs. Herman Boettcher, daughters, Louisa, Minnie and Mary, and son, Albert, of Greenwood, and Mrs. August Bahlow and family of Merrill.
