Elkader Register, Thur., 05 Nov. 1925.

A veil of deep mourning was cast over this community Sunday morning, October 25, 1925, at six o'clock, when the sad news went forth that Mrs. Sarah Ann Uriell was dead.

Deceased was the daughter of the late William and Catherine Schulte of Garnavillo, and spent her entire life in this community. She was 82 years, 6 months and 7 days of age at the time of her death. She died at her home in Elkader.

For the past several years she was in feeble health, and several months previous to her death she met with a painful accident from which she never fully recovered.

She died fortified by the last sacraments of her church, of which she was a devoted member. Her children were at her beside as she passed to the beyond. Mrs. Uriell was conscious to the very last moment of her passing in death.

Sarah Ann Schulte was born at Garnavillo on April 18th, 1843, at which place she lived her girlhood days. Her early education was at her home school after which she attended Sinsinawa College, Grant county, Wisconsin, to complete her studies in music.

On October 6th, 1861, she was united in marriage to James Uriell, at Garnavillo. Mr. Uriell preceded her in death, October 1st, 1892. At that time they lived in Read township.

Eight children are left to mourn their loss: William, Ed, Joseph, of Elkader, Iowa; Mrs. J. J. Kann, Minat, North Dakota; Mrs. James Glennon, Rochester, Minnesota; Mrs. Cecilia Kelleher, Elkader, Iowa; Mrs. Catherine Regan, Elkader, Iowa; Also Sarah and Regina at home; together with twenty-five grandchildren and eighteen great-grandchildren.

She is also survived by three brothers and one sister: Herman and Henry Schulte, of Garnavillo, Iowa; J. E. Schulte, Long Beach, California; and Mrs. Catherine Schmidt, Postville, Iowa.

The funeral obsequies were held on Wednesday morning, October 28th, at St. Joseph's church, Elkader. Burial was in Garnavillo cemetery by the side of her beloved husband. The pall bearers were: Frank Niemeyer, John Maley, Henry Pahlas, John Becker, Mike Miller, John Molumby, Thomas Donohoe.

(Note: The obit says she is survived by eight children, but it appears nine are named.)
