Hein, Maria (30 MAY 1844 - 2 SEP 1898)

The sad news reached there Friday morning that Mrs. John Hein had passed into the great beyond, the night before, at Tony, Chippewa Co., Wis., at which place she was visiting her husband and son Anton. She had been trouble with Addison’s disease for a year or more and had taken treatment at Chicago, returning apparently much benefited. While at Tony she was taken ill again and sank rapidly until the end came, although all in the power of the best medical aid from St. Paul was done to ward off the grim destroyer. The body was brought to this city (Neillsville, Clark Co., Wis.) on Saturday morning, the funeral occurred Monday morning from the Catholic Church and the remains were interred in St. John’s Cemetery.

Maria Thomas was born in Irsch, Germany, May 30, 1844, came to this country with her parents in 1856 and settled in Milwaukee County, this states, moved from there to Menasha and thence to St. John’s, Calumet Co. She was married to John Hein at DePere in 1865. The lived at Wrightstown for a time, then at Glenwood, and came to this city in 1888. Ten children, six of whom, Anton, Frances, John, Peter, Clara and Frank, with her husband, survive her. The loved ones she has left behind have the heartfelt sympathy of all in their affliction, for their’s indeed, is a great loss. She was a loving wife and mother and even when in pain herself, spared no effort to shield her loved ones from care and sorrow. Her circle of friends was wide, for to know her was to respect and love her, but her chief interest was in her husband, children and home.

A number of relatives from abroad in attendance at the funeral were Herman Rather, Heron lake, Minn., Nick and Henry Thomas, Appleton, Peter Brithen, Nick and Kate Hein, Chicago, Mrs. Nick Hein, Brown Co., and Adam Guserd, Tony.
