Heyder, Mary (16 Oct. 1853 - 5 Jan. 1923)

Mrs. Mary Heyder died at her home in this city Jan. 5, 1923, about four weeks after a stroke of paralysis, which rendered her helpless and from which she failed to rally. For a time she seemed to regain strength but for the two weeks preceding her death she gradually grew weaker till the end came.

Deceased was born in Schlesien, Germany, Oct. 16, 1853. There she grew to womanhood, and 45 years ago was married at Berlin to Paul Heyder. After their marriage they lived in Germany for a number of years, when they left for America, coming directly to Neillsville where they lived 12 years. They then moved to a farm in the town of York where they lied 14 years. Mr. Heyder died in 1905 and a few years after his death the family moved to Neillsville which has been the home since.

Mrs. Heyder was a woman possessed for the home virtues, kindly, helpful and sympathetic to those about her, looking after the welfare of her home and children, yet not forgetting the call of neighborhood needs. She held a high place in esteem of all who knew her. She was a member of the Royal Neighbors, and of the Ladies Aid in the Reformed church. She leaves to mourn her death three children, Arthur Paul Heyder, of Parker, S. D.; Miss Clara Eleanor at home and Velda Anna (Mrs. Frank Anderson) of River Falls. A daughter, Gretchen, died in infancy. She leaves also two grandchildren, Virginia Marie Anderson, and Mary Ellen Heyder.

The funeral was held Monday afternoon at the Reformed Church, Rev. D. Grether officiating.
