Tessmer, Augusta O. (19 JUN 1866 - 14 AUG 1923)

Mrs. Augusta Tessmer died at the home of her son-in-law, Herman Meyer, four miles northeast of town (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.), Tuesday, Aug. 14, 1923, of cancer after an illness of several weeks. She was at the St. Joseph Hospital at Chippewa Falls about two weeks and then was brought to the Meyer home so her daughter might care for her.

The funeral services were held this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. at the home and at 2:00 at the St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Rev. Keiper officiating.

Augusta Otillie Schultz was born in Pretz Lade Pozen, Germany, June 19, 1866. In 1884 she came to the United States and on May 6, 1886, was married to Carl Tessmer at Pittsburgh, Penn. In 1891 they moved to Dorchester where they have since resided.

Seven children were born to them, one deceased, Willie, and 6 living, Charlie, Mrs. Otto Schultz, Albert, Mrs. Herman Lorenzen, Embarrass, Gustave and Mrs. Herman Meyers.

Another loving mother and wife has slipped away into the great beyond and lonely hearts are left but they may take comfort in the fact that she has found a better home and that they had the loving care, companionship and kindly council of her whom they called mother.

The Clarion joins their many friends in offering condolence.
