This is translated from an original German obituary.
In the last number we had to report from the death (going home) of Mrs Maria Dettmann, wife of Mr Heinrich Dettmann and today it is a death again, that forces us to write. At that day, when we laid Mrs Dettmann to the rest, died after an illness of only 2 days Mrs. Luise Nühring, nee Bahlmann and was buried last wednesday, at 15. January, beside her husband, Mr Heinrich Nühring, who died at 8. February 1903.
From the résumé of the deceased it is to inform:
Mrs Luise Nühring, nee Bahlmann was born as the third child of the couple Friedrich Bahlmann and Maria nee Wacherdorff at 20 August 1834 in Schessinghausen, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
In the juvenile age of not yet 18 years, in May 1852 she reached her hand to her husband Heinrich Nühring to the marriage-knot and emigrated with him and their oldest children in the year of 1865 to America.
At first they settled down in Guttenberg, Clayton County, Iowa and then moved to Butler County in 1870, where they acquired a certain prosperity, so that they could purchase their own piece of land. That happened in 1881, the year when they came to our county. At first they lived in the near of Early, then moved into our community, into that they let admit themselves in 1888.
Heinrich Nühring and wife belonged to the regular church visitors, so long as they were healthy. With the years of the age they often to their regret had to do without the visit of our public worship.
Widow Nühring often was ill in earlier years, but the last two years were better, she could enjoy of a satisfying well-being. The more unexpected came to all of us the message from her sudden death as a result of an influenza, that affected heart and liver and caused her death in the morning of the 11. january 1908.
The deceased leaves from the children, that God gave her during a long over 50 years lasting marriage-live, 6 sons and 5 daughters, all except of one son are married.
Four of her sons are living here, that is to say Wilhelm, Karl, Louis and August Nühring, all the four as entitled to vote members belonging to our community. The oldest son Heinrich, who also came to the burial, lives in Butler county, the second son Fritz in Wisconsin.
From the 5 married daughters: Mrs August Ehlers, Mrs Wm? Buchholz, Mrs Heinrich Ripke, Mrs Heinrich Albinger and Mrs August Helmbrecht live the first and the both last ones in this area, while Mrs wm? Buchholz with her husband from Jackson, Minnesota, and Mrs. H. Ripke with her husband from Storm Lake, Iowa came to the burial of her mother.
The deceased was grandmother of 27 grandchildren and greatgrandmother of 4 greatgrandchildren.
While crisping frost and sharp northwind we laid the generally popular "mother" Nühring at the 15. january at midday to the last rest, that she found on the cemetery of the evangelical-lutheran St. Immanuel-community in Coon Valley Tsp., Sac County, Iowa. As coffin-cloth-carriers? there were: August and Wilhelm Hilmer, Aug. Rösele, Heinrich Hinrichs, Hermann and Joh.(ann) Kust.
Note Schessinghausen, Hannover, Germany is correct. Not Schleswig-Holstein
