Winter, Rheinhold A. (? - 16 JAN 1893)

Rheinhold A. Winter was taken with a sudden hemorrhage of the lungs about 3 a.m. on Tuesday and at 6:30 he passed peacefully into the beyond. He had been boarding at the Forest Queen House for several years, his room being located on the second floor over landlord McGuire's bedroom, whose attention Mr. Winter attracted about 2 a.m. by pounding upon the floor. Mr. McGuire arose and visited his room and found him seemingly suffering considerably and immediately dispatched a man for medical assistance, who found upon their arrival that little could be done to ease his sufferings. Mr. Winter was born near Bad Koesen, Germany, where his relatives reside, he having no relatives in this country. He came to America about thirteen years ago, was a practical jeweler by occupation and had worked in Pittsburgh, Pa., Memphis, Tenn. And Minneapolis, Minn., previous to his coming here (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.). He located here in 1888, opening a stock of jewelry in Dec. of that year. Last May he suffered a paralytic stroke, his left limb and arm being almost useless since then, and after spending several weeks at the Sisters' Hospital at Chippewa Falls, returned here and resumed his business, but was unable to work at the bench up to the time of his death by reason of the paralyzed condition of his left arm. In 1889 he joined the local lodge of Modern Woodmen of America, carrying insurance to the amount of $1000.00, payable upon his death to his sister, Anna Winter, who resides at Bad Koesen, Germany, with whom he carried on a regular correspondence. The M. W. A. took charge of the remains and he was buried on Wednesday in the Thorp village cemetery.
