Obituary of Mrs. C. Pabst
Mrs. C. Pabst, nee Groenewald, was born on March 28, 1844, in Vellage, Germany. In 1865 she came to this country and settled in Illinois. Soon after her arrival she was united in marriage to Mr. C. Pabst, and came to Grundy county about ten years later, taking possession of the farm on which she passed away August 27.
This union was blessed with nine children. Three of them died in infancy, and two children, Mary (Mrs. Theodore Schaa) and Dick Pabst preceded her in death. In 1906 her husband was taken from her side and she was left to fight the battle of life alone. As a widow Mrs. Pabst made her home with her son, Rudolf.
Mrs. Pabst was a charter member of the Lincoln Center congregation, and during the 41 years faithful in every respect. With her death the last charter member has passed to the great beyond. She will be missed very much within the fold.
Mrs. Pabst was beloved by all. Both young and old felt that she was a friend indeed. Funeral services were held at the Lincoln Center church Monday afternoon. These services were conducted by Revs. Weeldreyer and Sinning. The former spoke words of comfort in the German language and the latter in the English.
She leaves to mourn her death her children: John Pabst of Mountain Like, Minn.; Janna, Mrs. Helmer DeBerg; Grace, Mrs. C. Johnson, both of Dike; and Rudolf, who lives on the home place; a large number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Besides these there are many other relatives who keenly feel the loss through her death.
The following are a few of the names of those present at the funeral from a distance:
