Sill, Anna (1 Aug. 1892 - 12 Jan. 1954)

Mrs. Frank Sill died suddenly Tuesday night at 10:15 o’clock, a blood clot being the cause of her death. She had been recovering nicely from an attack of pneumonia and was feeling good. Tuesday night she was in a cheerful mood when she retired to bed at 10:00 o’clock, and, a few minutes later, gasped for breath a few times and then died. The body will repose in state at the Lulloff Funeral Home in Colby until Saturday afternoon when funeral services will be held at the Zion Lutheran church, Rev. O. Hoffmann officiating, and internment will be made in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery.

Anna Prange was born in Fox Mill, Germany, on August 1, 1892, and came to the United States in 1907 with her parents, coming directly to Colby and settled on a farm in the town of Colby, Wis. She married Frank Sill in Colby, Wisconsin on June 2, 1913.

Surviving are her husband; three sons, Otto of Kansas City, Mo., Paul and Norman of Racine; one daughter, Alma, at home; one sister, Mrs. Minnie Baumgart of Unity; four brothers, August Prange of Milwaukee, Otto Prange of Racine, William Prange of Ridgeland and Carl Prange of Town Colby, Wis.

Mrs. Sill was well and favorably known in Colby, Wisconsin for her many good qualities and as one who always endeavored to perform her duties to her family and church in preference to social pleasures.
