Dorchester - Last rites for Fred Ulrich, 82, were held Monday at the home of his son, Rudolph. The Rev. J. LeCount conducted the services.
Burial was made in Memorial cemetery with five sons of the deceased and one son-in-law, George Schultz, serving as pallbearers.
Mr. Ulrich died Thursday, Nov. 25, at the home of his son, Rudolph. He had suffered from asthma and death was caused by heart failure and the complications of old age. He had been seriously ill only a day.
He was born in Germany, July 27, 1854, and came to the United States at the age of 27 after a brief stay in London, England. He settled in Milwaukee, and was married there when 28 to Augusta Wilde. There he practiced the trades of upholsterer, harness maker and paperhanger, learned in Germany, and three years later the couple moved to Dorchester, where they operated a strawberry farm a half mile south of the village. After a few years they moved to Nebraska and later returned to Dorchester, Wis. Mrs. Ulrich passed away 16 years ago, and after her death the deceased went to Rochester to live. He later spent six years in Abbotsford with Mr. and Mrs. George Schultz, and during the past 11 months made his home with his son Rudy here.
Besides his wife, four children preceded him in death. Surviving are two daughters, Emma, Mrs. George Schultz, and Margaret, Mrs. Arthur Jensen, both of Abbotsford; six sons, Alvin of Waupaca, Fred of Rochester, Walter of Wrightstown, Charles of Denver, Colo., Rudolph of Dorchester, and Paul of Rochester; 37 grand-children, and four great-grandchildren.
All of the children were here for the funeral except Alvin. Misses Lydia and Lucille Schultz, Wausau, granddaughters of the deceased, arrived Saturday. Mrs. Viola Stabb, West Allis, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Fischer, Colby, and Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Wilde, Colby, also attended the services.
