Lillie Mae Froebel (25 Jun 1927 – 2 Nov 1957)

NOTE: Cemetery web pages says she died November 3

Funeral services for Lillie Mae Froebel, 30, were held today (Thursday) from St. Peter’s Lutheran church. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiated at the rites at 2:00 p.m. Misses Sharon Sauter, Ruth Krueger, Joan Martins, and Donna Doberstein sang “Asleep in Jesus” and “Safe in the Arms of Jesus,” accompanied by Mrs. M. E. Vircks, organist for the services.

Burial was in Dorchester Memorial Cemetery under the direction of Fuchsgruber Funeral Service, which had charge of arrangements. Pallbearers were Fred Reynolds, August Sauter, William Jantsch, Carl Habeck, Steve Chotoff, and Ed Brechlin. The deceased lay in state at the local funeral parlors from Tuesday until time of the services.

Miss Froebel died at about 6:45 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 2 in St. Joseph’s hospital, Marshfield. She became ill last week, and Friday entered the hospital, taken there by ambulance. Death was attributed to virus pneumonia.

Lillie Mae Froebel was born June 25, 1927, at Beloit. When she was three years old her parents moved to a farm west of the village, where she was reared, attending the Lawndale school. She had been a semi-invalid since suffering a stroke at the age of 12. In 1951 the family moved to Dorchester, which had been her home since. She was a member of St. Peter’s Lutheran church.
Her father, Otto Froebel, survives. Her mother died in September of 1954, and a sister died in infancy.
