Lubner, Caroline (28 SEP 1844 - 3 APR 1938)

Died, at her home in our village (Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.), Mrs. Martin Lubner, aged 93 years, 6 months and 6 days.

She suffered a stroke on Thursday morning and died on Sunday without regaining consciousness.

In describing Christian and Hopeful coming to the gate of the Celestial City, John Bunyan wrote: "Now I saw in my dream that these two went in at the gate, and lo! As they entered, they were transfigured; and they had raiment put on that shone like gold. Then I heard in my dream that all the bells in the city rang for joy, and it was said unto them, ‘Enter ye unto the joy of your Lord,’ and after that they shut up the gates which, when I had seen, I wished myself among them. They go from strength to strength, from joy to joy forever."

Caroline Gudert was born in Boreslaw, Germany, on Sept. 28, 1844. In the year 1875 she was married to Martin Lubner and in 1882 they came to America with their four children. She resided in Sheboygan for two years and in Kiel, Wis., for two years, before locating on a farm just outside Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.). She was a resident of Thorp for 42 years, ten years having been spent at Edson, Wis. Mr. Lubner passed away on July 14, 1931 at the age of 81 years.

She was a faithful member of the church. She was not only faithful to her church, but just as faithful in believing that it was her duty as a Christian to do the will of her Master at all times. She was always ready to lend a helping hand in time of need - both in acts of kindness and in words.

Surviving are four children, two sons, Frank of Sheldon, Wis., and Martin of St. Charles, Ill., two daughters, Mrs. Martha Boone, Stanley, and Mrs. Chas. Possley, Thorp.

Funeral services were held at St. Bernard’s Church here on Wednesday morning at nine o’clock, Rev. A.M. Muckerheide officiating, and interment was made in the Edson Cemetery. Pallbearers were: Mike Ramer, John Bauernfeind, Anton Velcheck, W.A. Wilhelm, Richard Brunner and Jacob Smith.
