Being alone in her home when the stroke came upon her, she fell to the floor and also had the misfortune to break her hip. Shortly afterwards being found by relatives in a serious condition. During her short illness all that loving hands could do and medical knowledge could suggest was done to save her life, but all failed when the Angel of Death called her to the other and better world, where there is no more suffering, but joy and happiness forever. Her death is deeply mourned by six sons: Herman of Dubuque; Charles W. and Robert H. of Guttenberg; William of Ossian; George J. of Alta Vista; and Fred H. of Lake Wales, Florida; two daughters, Mrs. Pauline Aulwes of Guttenberg, and Mrs. Anna Deuce of Chicago, Ill. Sixteen grandchildren, one brother, F. William Ulrich of Rock Falls, Ill., and numerous other relatives and friends, by whom she will be sadly missed. Funeral services were held at her late residence in this city on Wednesday afternoon, Rev. Emil Lehne of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran church officiating.
