Schlegelmilch, Bertha (1882 - December 1968)

Only a portion of this obit was available on my copy, but I gleaned information from her husband’s obituary.

Mrs. Charles J. Schlegelmilch, the former Bertha Goette, passed away recently. She was married to Charles J. Schlegelmilch, March 2, 1905, in Merrimac.

The family engaged in farming in Prairie du Sac before moving to Clark County in 1917. They operated a farm on the Pleasant Ridge for many years. In 1962, they retired and moved into Neillsville. Mr. Schlegelmilch died in 1966.

Surviving are four daughters, Mrs. Emil (Alice) Casner of Arpin, Miss Mildred Schlegelmilch of Neillsville, Mrs. Albert (Hazel) Zank of Neillsville and Mrs. Richard (Esther) Clark of Mesa, Ariz.; and a son, Norbert Schlegelmilch of Neillsville. Other survivors are a sister, Mrs. Ella Neu of Prairie du Sac; a brother, Oscar Goette of Merrimac; 18 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

(Note: The following was provided by Bertha's granddaughter)

Bertha Schlegelmilch was born in 1882. She died the same year when I was born.

She was my grandmother. My name is Kristine Woolner ( Schlegelmilch).
