Mrs. Louise Becherer died last Friday morning of old age and funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Zion Lutheran Church. Rev A Kirchhoefer officiated and she was buried in the Colby (Memorial) Cemetery.  She was born April 14,1843 in Sachsen Weimer, Germany. Her parents came to the town of Herman, Sheboygan Co., Wisconsin when she was five years old. In 1866 she

was married to Albert Becherer who survives her. Of eleven children born to them, only four are still living: Bertha in Oklahoma; Wm

Becherer,town of Hull; Louis, also of the town of Hull; and Emma, who is staying at an old folks home in Belle Plains, Minn. She is also survived by nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren.


The deceased reached the age of 86 yrs and 26 days.  She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church for many years.  Those from out of town here for the funeral were Bertha Becherer of King Fisher, Oklahoma; Emma Becherer of Belle Plaine, Minnesota; Mr. & Mrs. P. F. Tickhey, Mr. & Mrs. Walter Hingiss, and Edi Hingiss of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


She was a faithful member of the church and loved to attend services when health permitted. She was not only faithful to her church, but just as faithful in her Christian duties. She was numbered among the early settlers of this community, whose influence is impossible to estimate.
