Tragsdorf, Julia (May 20, 1845 - February 18, 1935)

Mrs. Julia Tragsdorf, a resident of this community for the past 56 years, died Sunday, February 18, 1935, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Frank (Bertha Campman) Hemp. Mrs. Tragsdorf, nee Julia Pleschka, was born Mary 20, 1845 at Gablentz, Austria. She attended school at Gablentz and later at St. Louis where she moved with her parents. Miss Pleschka was first married in St. Louis to William Campman, two children being born to this union, Will and Bertha, both of this city, the latter now Mrs. Frank Hemp. Following the death of Mr. Campman, Mrs. Campman was married on April 30, 1881, to Julius Tragsdorf at Neillsville, Wis. To this marriage were born four children, Mollie, Mrs. Paul Krause, of Wauwatosa; Julia, Mrs. Ralph Severson, of Anderson, Ind.; Emma, Mrs. John Walk, Neillsville, and Frank of Crandon, all of whom survive; also, 12 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Tragsdorf, who was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church and Lutheran Ladies Aid, was deeply interested in the affairs of the church and a woman of splendid character and ideals, intensely sympathetic and loved by all who knew her.

The funeral services will be held today (Wednesday) at 2 p.m. from the St. John’s Lutheran Church, Rev. William Baumann conducting the rites.
