At her home, No. 303 East Second street, Muscatine, Iowa, Saturday, April 8, 1893, of congestion of the lungs and paralysis, Mrs. GEORGE WILMERING.
The death of this estimable woman, for over fifty years a resident of Muscatine, will be sincerely regretted by the many friends whose respect and esteem she had so long possessed. She was taken seriously ill with congestion of the lungs and partial paralysis last Wednesday morning, and despite medical attendance and tender nursing, failed rapidly, passing away at 5:40 o’clock Saturday afternoon.
Mrs. Wilmering’s maiden name was Teresa Daterman and she was born in Hanover, Germany, where she spent her childhood. She came to America with Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Becke in 1841, and after a brief residence in Cincinnati came to Muscatine, then Bloomington, to make her home. In 1848 she was united in marriage with George Wilmering, whose death occurred about twenty years ago. She is survived by six children: Henry J., Mrs. A. C. Begey, Mrs. J. F. Ribak, Mrs. Charles Goetzman and Miss Mary, all of Muscatine, and George H., of Ottawa, Ill. Two sisters, Mrs. Theodore Becke and Mrs. G. Rutherford, also survive.
The funeral is appointed for Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock at St. Mary’s church, of which deceased was a devoted member.
