Kuechenmeister, Adelma (30 AUG 1894 - 17 OCT 1917)

Wednesday afternoon word flew over our little village as on the wings of the wind announcing the sudden death of Adelma Nickel Kuechenmeister. Wherever it reached it left sorrow, and the expressions of sympathy for the bereaved ones were many and from the heart. Adelma was the oldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Nickel, born at Wauwatosa 23 years ago the 30th of August. She came here with her parents 12 years ago and after finishing the course of study in this school district, went to Neillsville and graduated from that city's high school; then taught school very successfully and well here in the country for three years, or until she was very happily married to Charles Kuechenmeister Nov. 1st, 1916. On Sept. 12th, 1917 Adelma gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, little Lucile Marion, when in the ordeal of motherhood grave complications developed. Death claimed her at noon Wednesday, Oct. 17th, 1917.

Deceased is survived by her husband and their few weeks old baby girl, by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Nickel, two brothers, Daniel and Roy, and one sister, Elinor. In her untimely death her family suffers an irreparable loss and the community loses one of its most respected members. Her life supplied an example of the model of a Christian lady, wife and mother, gentle, modest, loving and forgiving. To say that she will be missed, only inadequately expresses the vacancy made by the hand of the Grim Reaper.

The funeral cortege will start from the Kuechenmeister home tomorrow, Saturday, at one o'clock and go to the Mapleworks German Lutheran Church, where with Rev. Hasz officiating, the funeral services will be held and interment made in the church cemetery.
