Funeral services for Mrs. Matilda Borman, whose death was reported last week, were held at the Lulloff undertaking parlors last Thursday afternoon, Rev. M. C. Goetsch officiating, and internment was made in the Colby cemetery. Pall bearers were Arthur Paque, Robert Smudde, Herman Jeskopsky, Ervin Krueger, Fred Block, August Krueger. The flower girls were Hazel Kleuckmann and Mary Kleuckmann.

The deceased was born in Germany August 20th, 1877, thus reaching the age of fifty-five years, seven months and fifteen days. She came to the United States in 1885 with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Kleuckmann. She was married to Frank Krueger in the town of Berlin in 1895 to which union eleven children were born. After the death of her first husband, she married Ernest Borman in Colby, Wis., in September, 1926, and divorced him one year later. She passed on to the distant shore on April 4th, 1933, after an illness of three months with a liver disease.

She is survived by the following children: August Krueger, Merrill; Rose Paque, Merrill; Viola Black, Merrill; Stella Smudde, Colby; Frank Krueger, Colby; Ervin Krueger, Merrill; Matilda Jiskofsky; Miss Leona Krueger, Merrill; Miss Dalia Krueger, Colby; Miss Elsia Krueger, Colby. Also four brothers - Henry Kleuckmann, Milwaukee; Emil Kleuckmann, Merrill; Ferdinand and Otto, in town of Halsey, Marathon county; and fourteen grand children.

The deceased was a diligent worker and always cared for the welfare of her children, caring little for her personal pleasure. She performed her work as she saw it and it is hard for anyone to do more.
