Hirsch, Flora (11 Jan. 1873 - 14 Mar. 1949)

Funeral services for Mrs. Flora Hirsch, 76, who died at Oshkosh, Friday, were held Monday afternoon at the Lulloff Funeral Home at Colby, with the Rev. G. E. Griffiths officiating. Internment followed in the Abbotsford cemetery.

Pallbearers were H. J. Amacher, Fred Daellenbach, Walter Jackson, Walter Kuenzi, Louis Mauritz, and Henry Ortmeier.

Flora Mary Petrie was born Jan. 11, 1873, at Brillion. She came to Abbotsford about 35 years ago. She spent a good part of her life caring for her aged father and mother and later for Mr. Houlton, a G.A.R. veteran.

In 1932 she married John Hirsch, who died about three years later.

For the past ten winters, Mrs. Hirsch has been spending the winter with relatives at Oshkosh. She went there at Thanksgiving time to be with her niece, Mrs. Arthur Pierce, where she died Friday, March 11, of a heart attack.

She is survived by an older brother, Carl Petrie, and sister, Mrs. Minnie Snyder, both of Los Angeles.

Among the relatives from away who attended the funeral were: Mrs. Arthur Pierce, Mrs. Stella Hensel, Mrs. Mattie Eberhardy, and E. D. Hensel, all of Oshkosh.
