Schulte, Ida (23 JUL 1852 - 3 NOV 1925)

Ida Schulte, whose death was chronicled in this paper last week, was buried Friday, Nov. 6, funeral services being held from the Green Grove Lutheran Church, Clark County, Wis., Rev. Goetsch officiating, and interment was made in the Green Grove Cemetery.

The deceased was born July 23, 1852, in Manitowoc Co., thus reaching the age of 73 years, 3 months and 10 days. She was married to Carl Schulte in Manitowoc Co., July 30, 1874, to which union eight children were born, seven of who are still living, one having died in infancy. She and her husband came here in April 1879 and, when this was still a vast wilderness, settled here and built a fine farm. Her husband preceded her to the distant shore and she left for the undiscovered country Tuesday morning, Nov. 3, heart trouble being the cause of her death.

It was just as the birds caroled the coming of the morning and just as the rosy fingers of the orb of day tinted the eastern sky with a sheen of glory. Surely a most fitting time for a pure spirit to take its flight heavenward. With the eye of faith, one could see at the dawn of this memorable November day an invisible hand wave a signal and a voice in softest accent on the morning breeze, announce that the gates were open and the God's angels were waiting to escort her in. She died honored, trusted and loved after a long, busy and useful life.

The deceased is survived by the following children: Mrs. Rheinhart Liprant, Green Grove, Wis., Charles Schulte, Colby, Wis., Mrs. August Buchholz, Holcomb, Wis., Arthur Schulte, Cumberland, Wis., Mrs. Edwin Awe, Green Grove, Wis., Mrs. Henry Zumack, Union Grove, Wis., Emil Schulte, Dubuque, Iowa, and by one sister and two brothers, namely: Charles Hamann, Sheboygan, Wis., Mrs. Frank Hugel, South Milwaukee, Wis., and Otto Hamann, Los Angeles, Cal.
