She was married to Fred Crakow in 1872 and to this union one daughter was born. In 1883 Mr. and Mrs. Crakow and daughter came to the United States, living at Arlington Heights for about 6 months and later moved to a farm near Curtiss and made their home there for many years. Mrs. Crakow was preceded to the grave by her husband who passed away about five year ago. She has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Minnie Patitz for some time and has many friends in this village and at Curtiss, who sincerely mourn her loss. She had been a member of the Lutheran Church since girlhood and was a woman of strong Christian character and a patient, loving wife and mother. To those near and dear to her, we offer our most heartfelt sympathy at their loss.

Zoch of Stevens Point and Walter Patitz at Marquette University, Milwaukee, one great grandchild, ****unreadable word**** Henry Zoch of Stevens Point and brother Godfrey Kare of Boston and three sisters in Germany.
