Federwitz, Anna (26 July 1875 - 6 Apr. 1935)

Mrs. Adolph Federwitz, who made her home with her son, Charles Gaier, for some time, died on her farm home near Marshfield Saturday morning at eleven o’clock as the result of an attack of pneumonia last fall. Funeral services were held Tuesday morning at St. Mary’s Catholic church, Rev. L. J. Lang officiating, and burial was made in the Colby cemetery.

The deceased was born in Austria on July 26, 1875, thus reaching the age of fifty-nine years, eight months and twenty days. She came to the United States in 1903 with her first husband, Frank Gaier. They settled at Oshkosh, residing there a year before going to Marshfield. After the death of Mr. Gaier, six years ago, Mrs. Federwitz made her home for some time with a son, Charles, at Colby.

She was married again at Marshfield, on Sept. 13, 1933, to Adolph Federwitz, who survives. She is also survived by the following children: Charles Gaier, Colby; Mrs. Frank (Laura) Petrack, Marshfield; Christine Gaier, Chicago; Frank Gaier, Milwaukee; and one stepson, Wilbur Federwitz, Marshfield.

There are eight grandchildren.
