Stoltz, Ernestine (20 FEB 1872 - 7 FEB 1926)

Mrs. Ernestine Stoltz, nee Rosenau, was born in Avoka, Wis. on Feb. 20th, 1872. Soon after her birth she was received into the Church by the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. Later in life she was confirmed in the Christian faith and pledged faithfulness to Christ and the Lutheran Church until her death. By the grace of God she kept such pledge, and is now reaping the eternal reward of her faith.

Feb. 28th, 1895 the deceased was united in holy wedlock to Mr. L. Stoltz. This union was blessed with five children: Mrs. Otto Hinz, Merrill, Mrs. J. Eserhaut, Marshfield, Caroline, Frieda, and Emma at home.

About a year ago she suffered a nervous breakdown. For a time it seemed as though she might recover, but the Lord had decreed otherwise. Several weeks ago she was again confined to her bed, and was compelled to remain there the few remaining days of her life. After having manifest remarkable patience throughout the time of her illness and great faith and fortitude, she fell asleep in Jesus at 5 a.m. Sunday morning, Feb. 7th, 1926, thus attaining the age of 53 years, 11 months and 17 days.

She leaves to mourn her early departure, her beloved husband, five daughters, five grandchildren, four brothers, three sisters, and other relatives and friends.

The younger years of Mrs. Stoltz's life were spent in the state of Iowa. After her marriage she became a citizen of Wisconsin where she has since made her home.

The funeral services took place Thursday afternoon of last week from the Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church at Abbotsford, Rev. V. M. Keiper acting as pastor and E. J. Fuchsgruber as undertaker, officiating. Interment was made in the Abbotsford Cemetery.
