Markwardt, Katherine (22 SEP 1863 - 25 DEC 1923)

On Christmas Day, 1923, the Grim Reaper came to sadden the home of John Markwardt and family of this city (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.), taking from this life to the life eternal, the wife and mother.

Katherine Schill was born in Luxembourg, Sept. 22, 1863. She came to America with her parents when she was two years old. They settled at Mineral Point, Wis., where she grew to womanhood, and was there married to John Markwardt, Nov. 25, 1889. They remained on her parent's farm until Nov. 5, 1901, when they came to Clark County and purchased a farm north of Neillsville. Mrs. Markwardt had been in poor health for some time, undergoing an operation for ulcers of the stomach in June 1920.

Mrs. Markwardt was a woman much loved by all who knew her. In her home she was active and industrious, looking well to the needs of her husband and children. She was a kind and helpful neighbor, ever ready to be of assistance when help was needed.

To Mr. and Mrs. Markwardt were born five children, four of who with their father survive: Mrs. Albert Walters of Hubbard, Iowa, Mrs. Frank Wilson on the home farm, Mrs. Nick Letsch, Neillsville and Henry at home. Veronica died in infancy. Deceased leaves also one brother, John Schill of Mineral Point, and one sister, Mrs. Kate Kieffer of Chicago.

The funeral was held at St. Mary's Catholic Church Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. P. Weber officiating.
