Nemitz, Anna (2 Aug. 1861 - 9 May 1944)

Funeral services for Mrs. Anna Nemitz, 83, Neillsville, will be conducted on Friday afternoon, May 12, at 1:30 at the Jaster Funeral home, and at 2 o’clock at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Rev. William A. Baumann will be the officiating pastor and burial will take place in the Neillsville cemetery.

Mrs. Nemitz died May 9, at the Neillsville hospital, where she had been a patient the past week. She had been in failing health for about two and a half years, and death was attributed to old age and complications.

Mrs. Nemitz, whose maiden name was Anna Koplen, was born August 2, 1861, in Germany, the daughter of Martin and Vironika Koplen. On May 24, 1887, she was married to William Nemitz in Germany. In 1892, they came to America, arriving in Neillsville in August of that year. They settled on a farm in the town of Pine Valley, near the west city limits, where they lived until 1918, when they moved into the city, purchasing the home on West 16th Street, where they have since resided.

Eight children were born to them, three of whom preceded their mother in death. Herman died in infancy in 1903. Gustave died in 1922, and Helen 1930. Her husband the following children survive: Max, Chicago; William, Dickinson, N. D.; Emil, Menasha; Arthur, Milwaukee; and Alfred, Long Beach, Cal. Ten grandchildren also survive. One grandson, Cpl. Earl William Nemitz, is in the U. S. Army, stationed at Camp McCoy, Wis. Her parents and brothers and sisters are deceased. In May, 1937, Mr. and Mrs. Nemitz celebrated their golden wedding anniversary with all of their children at home.

Mrs. Nemitz was a woman of quiet disposition, and her chief interests were her home and her family. She was a lover of flowers and had many of them about her home. She was a life long member of the Lutheran Church, and a faithful attendant and worker as long as her health permitted.
