Remsen Bell-Enterprise, Thursday, November 14, 1912

After a severe illness of about three months from heart trouble and other complications, Mrs. Jacob Manderscheid passed away at her home in Remsen on Monday morning at 2:15 o’clock. Mrs. Manderscheid had not enjoyed good health during the past twenty years, and last August her ailments developed to such an extent that she became bedfast. Sunday afternoon it suddenly became noticeable that the aged lady was sinking rapidly, and the end was not unexpected. She was 76 years of age.

Mrs. Jacob Manderscheid, nee Margaret Louis, was born in Hovelingen, Luxemburg in June 1836. Her parents passed away but a few years after, and the girl was given a home with friends until, in the year 1847, she came alone to this country, going direct to Dubuque, where she made her home and provided for herself for a number of years. In Aug. 1861, Margaret Louis and Jacob Manderscheid were married at Bellevue where they resided on a farm for some time, later moving to town, while the husband engaged at the carpenter trade.

They came to Remsen in 1899 to spend the rest of their days in happy retirement. Those thirteen years were spent in this city among the remaining children and other relatives, and Mr. and Mrs. Manderscheid dwelt happily in their beautiful home, where of late years they enjoyed the continual presence of their son-in-law and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Homan.

She was patient in her sufferings during all these years and was always willing to bear her portion of the burdens of life without complaint. During the long period of married life, Mrs. Manderscheid had been a most worthy mate to the man who chose her as his companion, and her Christian character helped to make the home a bright and honorable one.

Five children were born to this union of whom three remain to mourn the loss of their mother. There are Mrs. N. B. Miller of Sioux City, Mrs. D. J. Franke and Mrs. L. S. Homan of Remsen.

The funeral was held Wednesday morning at St. Mary’s Catholic church at 9:45. The following acted as pall bearers: H. A. Willenburg, F.G. Meinert, J.A. Tierney, M.R. Faber, N. Ernster, and M. Brucher.
