Brief mention was made in these columns last week of the death of Mrs.Alfred Buehre on Saturday, May 8, 1920, at the family home, east of town, of peritonitis, aged 32 years, 9 months and 28 days.

Margaretha Pausch was born in Hasen, Darmstadt, Germany, July 10, 1887, and came to America with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Pausch, in 1893, locating in Johnson township, Plymouth county, Iowa, near Adaville. She grew to womanhood there and received her education in the public schools.

She was united in marriage with Alfred Buehre on June 28, 1911, and they have always made their home on a farm east of here, in Portland township. Four children came to bless their home, but three of them died in infancy. The bereaved husband and eldest daughter, Lillian, survive, also her father, Henry Pausch, of Merrill, and one sister, Mrs. Paul Kamradt, and two brothers, Henry and Chas. Pausch, all of Johnson township, this county. She was confirmed in the Johnson township Lutheran church on April 1, 1900, but for several years had been a member of the Preston township Lutheran church. She was a kind and devoted wife and mother and a helpful neighbor and friend, whose untimely taking away is mourned by all who knew her.

Funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. Theo. Meyer, at the Preston township Lutheran church on Wednesday of last week. Interment was in the church cemetery there.
