Again death came and took the pilgrim staff of the weary hand of an earthly wanderer. This soul is Mrs. Wilhelmina Sophie Caroline Glawe nee Schroeder. Our departed sister saw this earthly word's light on November 12th 1958, at Passow, Pommerania, Germany. She received there the Sacrement of the Holy baptism and was confirmed 1873. Sept. 23 1877 our departed sister was united in marriage with Henry Glawe. To this union were born 10 children. A boy Arthur died, on the 17th day of May 1888. Mrs. Glawe came having made the trip on the ocean direct to Clayton Center. Now the 9 children whom she leaves to mourn are: Mrs. Mina Lahrs, Read twp; Mr. Herman Glawe united with Miss Louise Polkow, Boardman twp; Mrs. Fredericke Koss, Mendon twp; Mr. Henry Glawe united with Mrs. Katie Buseman, Hancock County, Ia; Mr. Karl [Charles] Glawe united Miss Ella Ihde, Boardman twp; Mr. John Glawe united with Miss Frieda Schuette, Cox Creek twp; Mrs. Karoline Seeland, Boardman twp; Mr. Albert Glawe united with Miss Lucinda Gottschalk, Wagner twp; Mrs. Ella Knocke, Hancock Co. Iowa; then 31 grand children and 2 great-grandchildren. Finally she is survived by her sorrowing brother John Schroeder residing near Postville. Her sister Frederika married Mr. John Scherf died June 17 1898, already since about 1894 our departed sister began to suffer. She has had to undergo a grave operation October 12, 1918, Since that date she had to suffer more and more. Her physical condition grew worse and worse, when she visited her daughter Ella Knocke, Hancock Co., Iowa, she was compelled to return quick. She was suffering very much until death came. Mrs. Glawe passed away August 17th at 4 o'clock p.m. She was one of the first members of the Ladies' Aid Society of the Lutheran church at Clayton Center. She reached an age of 66 years, 9 month, and 8 days.

Rev. Wm. Wuestenberg spoke impressive words of satisfaction in the mourning house, at the church and at the grave. She was buried in the old cemetery at Clayton Center. May be fulfilled on our deceased sister the beautiful words of the spirit filled port:
Be near when I am dying;
Oh! show thy cross to me;
Lord, on thy help relying
Come Thou and set me free;
These eyes new faith receiving
From Thee shall never more;
For he who dies believing
Dies safely in Thy love.
