Kobs, Augusta (23 JUL 1857 - 7 MAR 1927)

Mrs. Augusta Kobs, one of the early pioneers of this vicinity, died Monday afternoon, March 7, 1927, at her home in Colby, Wis., a stroke of paralysis being the cause of her demise. Funeral services will be held this Thursday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, at the Zion Lutheran Church, Rev. Kirchhoeffer officiating.

The deceased was born in the town of Herman, Sheboygan Co., Wis, July 23, 1857, thus reaching the age of 69 years, 8 months and 15 days. She came to Colby forty-five years ago, when this vicinity was still a vast wilderness, and was married to Albert Kobs at Zion Lutheran Church in Colby when she was twenty-eight years of age. Her husband died five years ago.

Her departure is mourned by three children, three children having preceded her to that distant shore, one sister, and four grandchildren. The children are: George Kobs, Colby, Paul Kobs, Neenah, Fred Kobs, Colby. Her sister, Fredericke Georgas, lives at Dorchester.

She was a woman of strong Christian character and never forgot the hospitable ways of the pioneer, but the messenger of death called and now another name is stricken from the roll of early pioneers.
