Leaves Large Family to Mourn Their Loss.-Burial Wednesday Morning
The community was shocked Monday morning when the announcement was made that Mrs. Christ Nosbisch was dead. But few knew she was ailing and the announcement came as a surprise. While she had been sick for some time she was able to be up and around, having been to Teutopolis as late as Wednesday preceeding her death. She was bothered with gall stones and Sunday took worse and that evening had an attack of heart failure which resulted in her death. The deceased was well known to a very large circle of friends. She was a good Christian lady and her departure will leave a vacancy that will not be filled.
The subject of this sketch was born in the province of Duddledorf, Germany, on May 5, 1853. She came to this country with her parents, John Mersdorf and wife, in 1864, coming direct to Teutopolis. On Nov. 23, 1871, she was united in marriage to Christian Nosbisch and they went to housekeeping on his farm in St. Francis township. By industry and saving they soon accumulated a large amount of land and at her death they were one of the wealthiest families of that township. She is survived by the following children:-Mrs. Wm. (Susie) Miller, John, Matthias, Nicholas, Mrs. Daniel (Katie) Ordner, Mrs. Joseph (Mary) Zerrusen, Mrs. Harry (Anna) Thoele, all married and living in the community, and Misses Lillie, Barbara and Thresia at home. One son died in its infancy. Besides the above, she leaves 14 grand-children and one sister, Mrs. John Burford.
The funeral services were conducted at the Catholic church Wednesday morning, burial being in the Catholic cemetery. The funeral was one of the largest attended held here for some time. Quite a number from Effingham and other surrounding towns were present. From a distant we noted the following: John Hoffman and wife of Chicago, Sam Waymeyer and wife and Nick Nosbisch, wife and son, Harry, of Villa Grove, Henry Wegstein and wife of Cullom, Mrs. Frank Drendel, son Frank, and daugthers, Barbara and Anna, of Cullom.
Card of Thanks
We take this method of extending our heartfelt thanks to Rev. Father Theodosius and all the friends and neighbors for the many acts of kindness shown us during our recent sad bereavements in the loss of our wife and mother. May God justly reward
