Heintz, Lizzie (1850 - 12 FEB 1927)

Word was received her Sunday morning of the sudden death of Mrs. Lizzie Heintz, a pioneer resident of the town of Hull, Marathon Co., Wis., which occurred Saturday evening at the home of her brother, Henry Brudette, AT Brownsville, where she was spending the winter, having left Colby Wis. last fall. While she has been suffering from diabetes for years, her passing was unexpected, as it was not known that she was seriously ill.

Mrs. Heintz was born in Bavaria, Germany seventy-six years ago, and when she was sixteen, she came to this country and to Wisconsin, where she has lived since. The first ten years spent in the southern part of the state, coming to the town of Hull in 1877, which numbers her among the oldest settlers of this section.

Mr. Bruederle, with whom she was visiting at the time of her death, is older.

Up until several years ago, the deceased made her home with her son, Max, but when he sold his farm she went to live with some of her children. The surviving children are Mrs. Harry Eggebrecht and O. H. Heintz of the town of Hull; Max Heintz, who is employed at Milan this winter; Mrs. Arthur Cutts, Unity; Harry Heintz, West Allis; Mrs. John Garnett, Sheboygan, and Lewis Heintz, who is employed in a lumber camp in the northern part of the state, but his whereabouts are unknown at this time and it has been impossible to get word to him.

The body arrived in Colby, Wis. Monday evening and the funeral services were held at the M. E. Church, Wednesday afternoon at 1:30, Rev. Hanscom conducting the funeral rites. Interment followed in the Colby Cemetery. The pallbearers were George Rein, Ed Brehm, Henry Rein, and O. R. Briggs.
