Marie Adelheit Theodora Boske Kaiser
In the Silent Sleep of Eternity the life of Marie Kaiser passed out on June 9th, at 5:30 P.M. in her Greenview Home. Her Heavenly Father called her out of this world of darkness into a blessed conclusion in the committal of her soul into the hands of the living Lord.
She was born to Herman Heinrich Boske and Katherine Spoede Boske on August 16th, 1862, in Badbergen, Province of Hanover Germany.
She had three brothers and two sisters who preceded her in death. The one sister passed away in America and the other sister and the three brothers died in Germany.
She came to the United States of America in 1883. She spent most of her remaining life-time in Greenview, Illinois. She was well-known and well-loved by the people of the community.
On March 6, 1896, she was joined in Christian Marriage to Johann Harmon G. Kaiser in Petersburg, Illinois, with Rev. August Hammer officiating at the Christian Ceremony. To this Christian Union one child was born: Herman Gerhardt Kaiser. The father passed away on Sept. 11th, 1937.
She was a member of the St. John Evangelical and Reformed Church, Greenview, Illinois.
She leaves to mourn her passing the faithful son, Herman, one grand daughter, Mrs. Richard Smith Jr. (Margaret Hermina Kaiser Smith), and a great-Grandson, Larry Dean Smith; besides, many nephews and nieces and other relatives and friends and neighbors, whom she so dearly loved.
She was known as a lovely mother, a dear aunt, a good grand mother, a kind great-grand mother, a devoted christian friend. She spent her love not only in a motherly way upon her loved ones, but other hearts were blessed by her genuine goodness.
The beloved bereaved takes this opportunity to thank all for the floral displays and friendly words of sympathy and the countless deeds of neighborly assistance which shall always be remembered. May the Lord bless every good soul for the christian kindness manifested in the period of sadness.
