Mrs. Biell, nee Dorothy Anna Schrein, was born in East Prussia, Germany, May 4, 1864, thus reaching the age of seventy years, two months and four days. She was married to John Biell in Prussia, Germany, August 23, 1885. She and her husband came to the United States in 1890, coming directly to Colby and have made their home here ever since.
The deceased is survived by her husband and by a nephew, Arnold Sill, whom they reared.
The deceased lived a good Christian life and always performed her duties as she saw them. She was numbered among our early pioneers and never forgot the sunshiny disposition of the early settlers which won for her the friendship of all who knew her.
