Luehr and Anna Margaretha Groth Teacher at Grand Rapids, Michigan Born Town of New Holstein Clara Hachez Daughter of Fredinand Hachez and Eliese Boie Born Town of New Holstein Witnesses Eddie Luehr, Annie Boie, Wm. Hipke and Emma Timm ********* Mrs. Wm. Luehr Called By Death The entire community was shrouded in sorrow this, Friday, morning when it became known that Mrs. Wm. H. Luehr had been suddenly called by death at the Washington Park Hospital, Chicago, Thursday morning at 2 o'clock, following an operation she underwent for internal goitre on Thursday of last week. She reached the age of 49 years, 3 months and 21 days. Reports from the hospital were very favorable for her recovery until Wednesday evening, when her condition suddenly changed. She had been in poor health all summer which greatly alarmed the family. In order to regain her lost health she has been in Chicago for the past two months under the care of a specialist. Her death has cast a gloom over the entire community with whom she was a general favorite and shining example of life's best acts. Clara Hachez was born July 30, 1871 in the town of New Holstein and spent her entire childhood here. She received her early education in Dist. No. 1. Later she taught school in the town of Rantoul for several years. On August 28, 1890 she was united in marriage to Wm. H. Luehr. Their first two years were spent in Grand Rapids and a short time in Madison. For thirteen years they were residents of Manitowoc where Mr. Luehr was principal of the high school. From there they went to Sheboygan Falls where they remained for two years and then came to New Holstein where they resided for four years. Mr. Luehr was again called as an instructor in the Manitowoc High School two years ago where they have since resided. Their married life has been a most happy one. They were blessed with two children, Lucille, Mrs. Howard Conger, of Michigan and Robert of Milwaukee. Mrs. Luehr was a kind and loving wife and mother, always sharing their joys and sorrows. She was a general favorite in every community where she resided, taking active part in all social and civic affairs. She was beloved by those who knew her and came in contact with her. While the silence of death wraps and chills us at this time, memories sweet and precious, come crowding in. The deceased leaves her grief stricken husband and children and an aged father Mr. Ferdinand Hachez, two brothers Louie and Ferdinand of the state of Washington; Mrs. Edw. Kelm, Grand Rapids, Minn.; and Mrs. Lillian Price of Louisiana, Missouri, and one grandchild. Her mother preceded her in death two years ago. The remains will be brought here for burial, and the services will be held at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon. In the words of Bryant which we copy here she has gone but "Death should come gently, to one of gentle mould like thee As light winds wandering through groves of bloom Detach the delicate blossoms from the tree. Close thy sweet eyes calmly, and without pain, And we will trust in God to see thee yet again."
