Scheckleman, Theresa (7 AUG 1833 - 5 APR 1908)

Died, at her home in Hein, Clark County, Wis., on Sunday afternoon at one o'clock, Mrs. Theresa Scheckleman, at the age of seventy-four years, seven months and twenty-nine days.

The deceased was born in Bavaria, Germany, and came to this country May 23, 1873, and located at Jefferson, Wis. and remained there until Oct. 5, 1888, when she and her husband came to Clark County, Wis. and located on a farm in Hein. Her husband died on Feb. 23, 1906.

As the death dew gathered on her marble brow, around her bedside gathered her "girls" and "boys", always girls and boys to her, though now grown to mature years with boys and girls around their own firesides. The life so long interwoven with theirs, with tearful eyes they watched as it slowly but surely passed over. The love of a mother for her children passeth human understanding. The boys and girls that gathered about the cot of this dying mother long ago passed out from the home circle. Business cares and their own home circle have encroached upon their time, may have robbed the mother of their companionship, but she was ever just the same; rejoicing in their success and grieving at their misfortunes. They may have grown away from her, but she never from them; they were still her boys and girls.

She leaves three sons, George and Joseph of Hein and Norbert of Jefferson, and three daughters, Mrs. John Meyer and Mrs. Albert Schweiger of Jefferson and Mrs. Charles Meyer of Hein to mourn her loss.

Impressive funeral services were held at the Catholic Church in this village on Tuesday at ten o'clock and all that was mortal of this grand old mother was tenderly conveyed to the Catholic Cemetery, where, by the side of her husband, she now rests in peace.
