Thiel, Anna Sophia (19 Oct. 1858 - 11 Jan. 1943)

Anna Sophia Thiel died at her home in the town of Hull, Wisconsin, Monday afternoon, January 11, at 6:45 P.M., a heart disease of two weeks duration being the cause of her death. Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon, Jan. 15th, at 2:00 o’clock at the Zion Ev. Lutheran church in Colby, Rev. O. Hoffmann officiating, and internment will be made in the Colby cemetery.

The deceased, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Krepsky, was born in Sheboygan county on October 19, 1858, thus reaching the age of 84 years, two months and 22 days. She was married to Ernst Thiel in Sheboygan county and they came to this community in 1901 and engaged in the business of farming. Twelve children were born to them.

Surviving children are John Thiel of Belle Plaine, Minn., Max Thiel of Colby, Reynold Thiel of Spokane, Wash., Mrs. Wm. Mehrign of Sheboygan, Wis., Edward Thiel of Brooks, Oregon, Martin Thiel of Spokane, Wash., Eugene Thiel of Colby, Joseph Thiel of Spokane, Wash., Mrs. Paul Schmit of Colby, and Mrs. Arthur Nagel of Colby, Wis. One brother, Frank Krepsky, of Sheboygan, Wis., also survives.

The deceased was a good Christian, a kind and indulgent wife and mother, and, like all early pioneers, of a congenial, industrious and hospitable disposition.
