Bremer, Elsie Bertha (February 13, 1911 - November 3, 2009)

Elsie Bertha Bremer, 98, Abbotsford, died Tuesday, November 3, 2009 at the Golden Living Center in Abbotsford.

Elsie was born in the town of Mayville to John and Pauline (Schneider) Bremer on Feb. 13, 1911.


She graduated from St. Peter’s Parochial School and Dorchester High School in 1928. After graduation she worked in Milwaukee as a nanny and housekeeper. At this time she also attended Vocational School returning after fifteen years to care for her parents.


She was employed locally for the following twelve years at Miller Bakery as a cake decorator.


She also was employed for the US Census Bureau for over twenty years, covering Clark County.


Always having an artistic touch, she took up art in her late forties, specializing in still life, scenery and dog portraits. Her paintings were exhibited though out Wisconsin winning many awards.  She was proud to have been an exhibitor at New Visions Gallery at the Marshfield Clinic.


She also was very involved as an original organizer and later a costume maker, sewing over one hundred costumes for the Abbotsford Christmas Parade.  After retirement she traveled the world including the Holy Land, Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, Russia, and Europe. Elsie had a flair for life and was self taught in history, religion and especially geography through her love of books.

Elsie is lovingly survived by one brother John (Jean) Bremer and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her two sisters, Ann Neumann and Minnie Fenske; and one brother, Arthur Bremer.

Her funeral service will be held on Friday, Nov. 6 at Christ Lutheran Church in Abbotsford at 11:00 a.m. The Rev. Dr. Paul C. Hunsicker Sr. will conduct her funeral service. Visitation will be held at the church from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service. Burial will follow at the Abbotsford Public Cemetery.
