Mrs. Conrad Conradi died at the home of her daughter Mrs. Conrad Wiegman at Graettinger last Thursday. The remains were sent to Wellsburg Saturday and they were taken to the home of the deceased's grandchild Mrs. J. H. Kelly. Funeral services were held at the Lutheran church in Shiloh township on Sunday afternoon. Rev. Heinrichs had charge of the services. The remains were laid by the side of the husband in the Lutheran church cemetery.
Mrs. Conradi would have been eighty-three years old had she lived until next June. She and her husband came to Grundy county forty-three years ago. They lived on a farm of their own near Wellsburg up to about fifteen years ago. Ten years ago the husband died at Wellsburg. Mrs. Conradi continued to live in the family home until five years ago when she went to Graettinger to make her home with her daughter and she remained there continually up to the time of her death.
Mrs. Conradi was born in Eastfriesland, Germany, June 14th, 1831 where she resided until she came to this country.
Mr. and Mrs. Conradi were influential in the organization of the Lutheran church in Shiloh township and they retained their membership there up to the time of their death. At the funeral services Sunday there were not seats enough in the church to accommodate all who came to attend the funeral services.
Mrs. Conradi was the mother of seven children. Three of them are dead. The living children are Conrad from Sibley, Henry from Woden, Mrs. Conrad Wiegman from Groettinger and Mrs. D. Baad from Buffalo Center.
