Dittmeyer, Adolph August (2 May 1880 - 23 Feb. 1936)
Adolph Dittmeier passed away suddenly at 10:30 o’clock Sunday night at his farm home in the town of Colby, a heart attack being the cause of his departure to the distant shore. Funeral services were arranged for this Thursday afternoon at St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran church at Green Grove. Rev. M. C. Goetsch will officiate and internment will be made in the Green Grove cemetery.
The deceased was born in Sheboygan county on May 2, 1880, thus reaching the age of fifty-five years, nine months and twenty-one days. He was married to Miss Marie Gottschalk twenty-four years ago and immediately came to the town of Colby where they lived ever since.
Mr. Dittmeier is survived by his wife and two children - Mrs. William Theilig of the town of Colby and Henry Dittmeier at home. Also a brother, Oscar of Colby, and four sisters, Mrs. William Melger of Cleveland, Wis., Mrs. Fred Ernert of Kiel, Mrs. Emil Hensel and Mrs. Lena DeSmitt of Sheboygan.
The deceased had always been a good Christian, a dutiful husband and father and a good neighbor. Industrious and honest in all his dealings, he enjoyed the friendship of many people who will miss his congenial and friendly greetings.
