Death Closes Life Of Esteemed Woman
Mrs. Baasch Dies At Her Home
Funeral Is Largely Attended
Mrs. P. Baasch died at her home near Alice at 7:30 Saturday morning. She was sick several months. About two months ago she submitted to an operation at Iowa City for gall stones and appendicitis and for several weeks following the operation the family had good hopes that she would get well. She was troubled also with enlargement of the heart and this was the cause of her death. Mrs. Baasch's funeral was held at Alice church Monday afternoon. The resident pastor was unable to officiate and Rev. F. E. Hamlin had charge of the funeral services. Every seat in the large church was filled during the services.
Mrs. Peter Baasch, whose maiden name was Miss Margaret Lohr was born in Franklin county, Pennsylvania in '62. At the age of 24 she moved to this county with her people. Dec. 13th, 1892 she was united in marriage with Peter J. Baasch. One child, a daughter, was born to this union who with the father survives the mother. During all of their married life Mrs. Baasch lived in the Alice neighborhood and there was not another woman in that community who was held in more high regard than she.
