Augusta Anna Zausch was born Dec. 7, 1867, in Milwaukee. She was married there in June, 1886 to Frank Goelden and they made their home there until 1901, when they bought a farm in the town of Hull, where the son, Peter, now lives. 

Six children were born to them, four of whom preceded her in death; a son, Grover, in infancy; Mrs. Edward (Grace) Wille, Chicago; Mrs. Lyman (Sade) Brown, Boyd; and Frank, of Abbotsford. Mr. Goelden died Jan. 5, 1929. 

Mrs. Goelden was a member of St. Bernard’s church, having been one of those who formed the parish. She was also an active member of the Ladies’ Altar Society. 

About a year ago, she suffered a stroke and about four months ago she was taken to the Marathon County hospital, Wausau, for care. Here she died at noon on Tuesday. 

Surviving are her son, Peter, Abbotsford, and one daughter, Mrs. Edward (Jeannette) Schultz, Fond du Lac. There are 13 grand children, 28 great grand children and four great, great grand children. A half-sister, Mrs. Kate Nachnable, of Omaha, Neb., also survives.
