Ehlert, Wilhelmina (1 MAY 1830 - 3 SEP 1909)

Mrs. Wilhelmina Ehlert died at the home of her son William in the town of Loyal, Clark County, Wis. on Friday morning at ten o'clock.

Had the deceased lived until next May she would have been eighty years of age. She was born in Germany on May 1, 1830, and came to this country in the fall of 1880 with her husband and settled on a farm near Iron Ridge, Dodge Co., Wis. One year later they came to Clark County and settled on a farm in the town of Loyal. Her husband preceded her twenty-five years ago.

No one was more willing to aid the suffering, cheer the despondent, sustain the weak and to throw over the frailties of our race the mantle of Christian charity and when sickness and death came to her, as it comes to us all, neighbors and friends vied with each other in acts of loving kindness and tender solicitude.

She leaves to mourn her loss three sons, William and Charles of the town of Loyal and August of Burnett Junction, Dodge Co., and two daughters, Miss Hannah and Mrs. William Neitzel, also of the town of Loyal.

The funeral services were held at the Lutheran Church at three o'clock on Sunday afternoon and the remains interred in the Lutheran Cemetery.
