1 ——-,./;?^3,-. ■ ;i
Mrs. Ferdinand Deetz of Jackson street was called to her final rest early Friday morning, July 6, after an ill¬ ness that extended over many months." Last year she was taken with an at¬ tack of asthma of the heart, but she!- was gradually recovering from that' trouble when dropsy set in and she gradually grew weaker until the end.
The funeral was held Sunday after¬ noon at Trinity Lutheran church, of which she was a, member, her pastor, Rev. Bliss, conducting the services, • with burial in Union cemetery. The ! funeral was largely attended.
Mrs. Ferdinand Deetz, nee Augusta Bredlau, was born in Germany October 25, 1859. There she was baptized and confirmed and there also she was mar¬ ried to Ferdinand Bredlau in 1878. This union was blessed with ten chil¬ dren, four having been born while they were still in4 Germany. In 1885 they emigrated to America and spent all their life after that in Elmore. Four of their children preceded her in death, three in infancy and Otto about two years ago.
She leaves to mourn a bereaved hus¬ band, who is practically helpless; four sons, Ferdinand of Chicago, William living east of town, Henry C. in El¬ more, and Fred at home; one daugh¬ ter, Mrs. George Dalling, near Toledo; nine, grandchildren, one sister, Mrs. Leonard Horner of Elmore, and a host of friends. These all will remember her active interest in their behalf and how well she deserved the commenda¬ tion of "well done, good and faithful servant," at the close of her 63 years 8 months and 11 days on earth,
