Schroeder, Augusta (12 Mar. 1856 - 7 Jan. 1945)

Mrs. Augusta Schroeder, aged 88 years, died Sunday, January 7, 1945, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Arnold Henchen, town of Pine Valley, after an illness of about four years.

Funeral services were conducted Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 at the Jaster funeral home and at 2 o’clock at the Globe Lutheran church. The Rev. Adolph Schumann, pastor of the church, officiated. Burial took place in the Globe cemetery.

Augusta Lueck was born March 12, 1856, in Germany, and grew to womanhood there. On November 2, 1882, she was united in marriage with Carl Schroeder, who preceded her in death nine years ago. In 1886 Mr. and Mrs. Schroeder came with relatives to America, settling at that time in the town of Weston, Clark county. They purchased timber land, and worked together to clear the land and make a home. This farm continued to be her home until two years ago, when she moved with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Henchen, to their present home in the town of Pine Valley.

Mrs. Schroeder was a member of the Globe Lutheran church, and was an active worker in the church and the Ladies Aid for many years.

She is survived by her daughter, Helen, Mrs. Henchen, and by six grandchildren. One grandson, Pfc. Herbert Henchen, is serving with the U.S. army in New Guinea. Her parents and brothers and sisters are dead, and four children died in early childhood. Albert Lueck of Weston, who died 15 years ago, was her brother.

Pallbearers were Carl and Herbert Schoenherr, Harold and Theodore Miller, Herman Dux and Frank Thoma.
