Dietrich Mueller (21 Feb. 1874 - 30 Apr. 1946)

Dietrich Mueller died at his home in the first ward in the city of Colby Tuesday morning, April 30, at 2:10 A.M., complications being the cause of his death. Funeral services will be held at the Lulloff Funeral Home in Colby, where the body is lying in state, and internment will be made in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery. The deceased had been ill four weeks.

Mr. Mueller was born in Helsendorg, Germany, on Feb. 21, 1874, thus reaching the age of 72 years, two months and nine days. He came to the United States in August, 1883, and to the town of Colby in October, 1883, where he engaged in farming. He was married to Lydia Gundelach at Fond du Lac, Wis., on September 16th, 1908. About a year ago they retired from the farm and moved to the city of Colby, Wisconsin.

Surviving are his widow, one sister, Mrs. Louie Weller of Colby, and nieces and nephews.

Like all early pioneers, Mr. Mueller was of an industrious disposition, honest in all his dealings and of a congenial disposition.
