Hollman, Hedwig (15 Oct. 1873 - 6 Mar. 1936)
Mrs. Alvin Hollman of the town of Colby died Friday night at six o’clock at the Marshfield hospital, where she had been receiving medical treatments ever since January 6th, complications of diseases being the cause of her departure to the distant shore. Funeral services were held on Tuesday morning at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Rev. Theodore Jaeressen officiating, and internment was made in the Colby cemetery. The pall bearers were Victor Frane, Al Schuh, John Schuh, Chas. Kesler, John Allar and Math. Allar.
The deceased was born in Freiheit, Austria, October 15th, 1873, thus reaching the age of sixty-two years, four months and twenty-three days. She came to this country in 1911 and was married to Alvin Hollman at Stetsonville on September 11th, 1911. Her maiden name was Hedwig Reichert and she is survived by her widower and three sons, Rudolph Hollman of San Francisco, Calif., and Frank and Richard Hollman at home. Also three sisters and a brother in Austria. The family lived at Stetsonville for two years and since 1914 lived on the farm in the town of Colby.
The deceased was a faithful member of St. Mary’s congregation and lived a good Christian life, always cheerful and helpful. Her devotion as daughter, wife and mother will long linger as a fragrant memory in the home which her presence brightened.
