Tesmer, Anna E. (23 JUN 1863 - 18 MAY 1929)

Mrs. Charles H. Tesmer died Saturday, May 18, 1929, at home here in Colby, Wis., after an illness of about two weeks, apoplexy being the cause of her departure. Funeral services were held at the Zion Lutheran Church Tuesday, the Rev. Kirchhoefer officiating, and interment was made in the Colby Cemetery. She attained the age of 65 years, 10 months and 25 days.

Mrs. Anna Elizabeth Tesmer, nee Kading, was born June 23, 1863, in Watertown, Wis., and was married Oct. 1, 1880, nearly fifty years ago, to Charles H. Tesmer, who survives her. From 1880 to 1891 they lived at Sturgeon Bay, Wis., and then moved to Colby, where they have been living since. One of their children, Henry, died at the age of four years. Those still living are: George of Colby, William of Wausau, Charles of Kohler, Wis., Mrs. Clara Wescott of Colby. Also eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. The following brothers and sisters also mourn her death: Emil Kading of Colby, Max Kading of Watertown, Wis., Mrs. Herman Borchardt of Watertown, Wis., Mrs. Ida Manning of New York City, Mrs. Thomas Lambie and Mrs. Herbert Patterson of Crandon, Wis., and Mrs. John Rowell of Minnesota.

Mrs. Tesmer was a member of the Zion Lutheran Church since 1891. She was a woman of strong Christian character; patient, loving and self-sacrificing. Well may her sons and daughters cherish her memory as a precious legacy, and as a word of comfort, we would point them to the promise, "At eventide it shall be light."
