LAST RITES HELD FOR MRS. WILLIAM OBERLE
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Arnold Muckerheide at St. Bernard’s Church at nine thirty o’clock Friday morning for Mrs. Wm. Oberle who passed away at St. Joseph’s hospital at Marshfield, Tuesday evening, March 12, after several month’s illness. She had reached the age of 72 years, 8 months and 28 days.
Anna Liske was born at New Holstein, Wisconsin, on June 14, 1873, where she grew to womanhood. At the age of 22 she was united in marriage to William Oberle at New Holstein on February 19, 1895. Soon after their marriage they purchased an eighty-acre farm near Thorp in the town of Worden. They resided on this farm for 29 years. In 1924 they moved to the Village of Thorp, which has since been their home.
A year ago, February 19, 1945, they celebrated their Golden Wedding at their home in a quiet way. They were content & happy to have all the children present, for the occasion.
Mrs. William Oberle was a devoted wife, a kind and loving mother, a good neighbor, and a friend to be depended upon. Few people have forced to endure the hardships, sorrow and sufferings that she has had, yet through it all she bore it bravely and patiently. She was a good Christian and was a member of the Christian Mother’s Society for many years. Her many relatives and friends deeply mourn with the bereaved widower and his family.
We miss thee from our home dear mother,
We miss thee from thy place.
A shadow o’er our life is cast,
We miss the sunshine of thy face.
We miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care.
Our home is dark without thee,
We miss thee everywhere.
