Scherf, Mina A. (29 JAN 1861 - 16 DEC 1921)

Mina A. Rice was born at Beray, Wis., on Jan. 29, 1861, and in the year 1875, was united in marriage with Mr. Joseph Bangle. To them were born five children, three daughters and two sons. Her husband and four children preceded her in death.

She was married in 1903 to Mr. Albert Scherf of Menomonie, where they resided for awhile, and then moved to Albany, Oregon to make their permanent home. They returned from Oregon in 1911 and for two years resided on a farm near Humbird, Clark County, Wis. In 1913 they again went to Albany, Oregon, where they lived until May 1920, when they returned here on account of illness, to make their home with her daughter, Mrs. E. W. Putman.

Mrs. Scherf was a Christian from girlhood, and was a member of the Methodist Church, in which she was an earnest worker until illness prevented a few years ago. She passed away Dec. 16, 1921, at the home of her niece, Mrs. Guy Chatterson, at Milaco, Minn. There are left to mourn her death, her husband, one daughter, Mrs. E. W. Putman of this village; one brother, M. J. Rice of Merrillan; other relatives, and a host of friends.

The remains were brought to this village last Saturday night, from Milaco, accompanied by the bereaved husband and daughter, who were with her when death came, following a paralytic stroke. The funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon at 2:00 at the Methodist Church, and were attended by a large congregation of friends. Rev. A. J. Coram preached the funeral sermon, and the ritual burial service of the Royal Neighbors was given by Syringa Camp, of which the deceased was a beneficial member. Burial was in the Mentor Cemetery.
