    • «b»Theo. Wollschlager Passed Away Friday of Last Week«/b»
      Theodore Wollschlager passed away at his home in this city, quite suddenly last Friday afternoon. The cause of death was heart failure and his passing was quite unexpected. Mr. Wollschlager was born in Stegers, West Germany, on Oct. 30, 1841. He was united in marriage to Mathilda Voelz on Nov. 19, 1878. They came to America in the month of May 1909, and located in Grant county, South Dakota.
      After living there for ten years they moved onto a farm in the township of Perry, this county where they lived for six years, moving to this city in 1916. Since that time they have made their home here.
      Deceased is survived by his widow and eleven children as follows: Mrs. August Tasto, Mrs. August Nitz, John Wollschlager, Mrs. Otto Nester, Frank, Alois, Bruno, Mary, Herman, Helen and Agnes Wollschlager.
      The funeral was held from St. Michael's Catholic church Monday morning, the Rev. Fr. Minea officiating. The pall bearers were Gerhard H_, Math Schladweiler, J.G. Hammes, P. _, John Kemen and Casper Schmieding.
      The remains were laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery in this city. During his residence in this city Mr. Wollschlager made a host of friends here whom we join in extending sympathy to the bereaved family.
