Lemke, Anna M. (16 SEP 1859 - 19 MAY 1920)

Again the Angel of Death entered a Colby, Wis. home and taken away a most estimable wife, mother and neighbor.

Mrs. August Lemke passed away Wednesday morning, May 19, 1920, after an illness of only three days, having been stricken Sunday noon while enjoying her mid-day meal. Although Mrs. Lemke had not been in the best of health since Christmas, the end came most unexpectedly.

Anna Margaret Kuhl was born in Germany, Sept. 16, 1859. She married Peter Mahlstedt in 1878 and they came to this country, settling at New Holstein, Wis.

After six years of wedded life Mr. Mahlstedt died at New Holstein and the deceased and children moved to Unity, Wis., where she resided until six yeas ago, when she became the wife of August Lemke and they moved to this city.

The deceased is survived by her husband and two children, Mrs. J. Hansen of Racine and Richard Mahlstedt of Kenosha. She has no other relatives.

The body will be taken to New Holstein tomorrow and the funeral services will be held at the German Lutheran Church, of which she had been a member since childhood. The interment will be made in the church cemetery.
