Erdman, Mary (15 Jan. 1876 - 4 Apr. 1957)

Mrs. Mary Erdman died last Friday at the home of her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Erdman, in the town of Colby, at the age of 81 years. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon in St. Paul’s Lutheran church, Green Grove, Rev. Martin H. Krause officiating, and internment was made in the parish cemetery.

Mary Theilig was born in Milwaukee and came here with her parents when one year of age. She married Gustave Erdman in Colby in 1898 after which they engaged in farming.

Surviving are one son, Oscar, and two daughters, Mrs. Eugene (Elsie) Johnson of Holcombe and Mrs. Art Fakes (Esther) of Owen. Her husband and one son preceded her in death.

Mrs. Erdman was well and favorably known in this vicinity, especially to older people of the community, for her congenial and industrious disposition and one who always endeavored to perform her duties honestly and well.
