Nuernberger, Lena A. (3 May 1871 - 3 Jan 1926)

Mrs. Herman Nernberger passed away Sunday morning, Jan. 3, at 3:30 o'clock at her home 1 mile south of Dorchester, Clark County, Wis. after a long illness at the age of 54 years and 8 months.

Funeral services were held at the Peace Church Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Bizer officiating and Arthur Baehr, Anton Schilling, Max Hoffman Sr., George Koehn, Gus Laack and F. A. Distelhorst acting as pallbearers.

Lena Augusta Violand was born in Switzerland, May 3, 1871. When she was 20 years old she in company with a brother came to the United States and settled in Milwaukee, Oct. ?, 1896 she was married to Herman Nuernberger at Milwaukee.

In 1900 they came to Dorchester and settled on the farm south of town where she died.

Three children were born to them, one daughter, Mrs. Helen Meier and two sons, Herbert, who died 18 years ago and Alfred who is at home with his father.

Mrs. Nernberger was of the pioneer stock that Dorchester is so proud of and though she came here later than many, she helped to make a farm home where wilderness had been. She was a great church worker and was secretary of the Ladies Aid for 14 years and she was a person one enjoyed meeting for she was a sure cure for blues with her pleasant smile and kindliness the world seemed like a new place. Why she is gone, when she was still in her prime, we know not, but this we know, the Heavenly Father knoweth best and He will comfort if we let him.

Besides her husband and 2 children she leaves to mourn her loss, her son-in-law, George Meier, and 3 grandchildren, 3 brothers and 2 sisters in Switzerland, one brother, Oscar Violand of Milwaukee and 1 sister, Mrs. August Steinke, Grandina, N.D., and 1 nephew here, Oscar Violand, Jr., besides many other relatives.

Those from out of town here for the obsequies were Mr. and Mrs. O. P. Violand, Mrs. O. A. Violand and daughter Miss Vine Hayne, Mr. Bruno Betzolt, all of Milwaukee, Miss Eva Nernberger of Wild Rose and Mr. Charlie Adams of Colby.
