Death of Mrs. Joe Bartlein

 

After being sick for almost thirty days with typhoid fever, Mrs. Joseph Bartlein passed away at her home Tuesday morning at six o’clock.  The deceased was born in Calumet county forty six years ago.  In 1886 she was married to Joseph Bartlein.  They lived in Menasha three years after their marriage and then came to Shawano, and have resided here since then.  Seven children were born, the oldest 19 years of age and the youngest six.  She was a loving wife and mother and will be greatly missed in her home.  The children will greatly miss the mother’s care.  The funeral was held this morning at the Catholic Church, Rev. Becker saying mass.  The community sympathizes with the family in this sad hour.
