They came to America in 1857, and after a residence of a year and half at Naperville, Ill., they settled on a farm near Burlington, Ill., about ten miles from Sycamore, and there they made their home for 25 years. They then became residents of Hampshire, Ill., where Mr. Bollinger died fifteen years ago. Shortly after her husband's death, Mrs. Bollinger had the misfortune to slip and break her hip, from which injury she never fully recovered. From that time she had made her home with her daughter, Mrs. E. Stutenroth, in this city.
Mrs. Bollinger was the mother of seventeen children. Seven of her children died in infancy, one at 14 and one at 16 years of age. There are surviving: Virgil, who has conducted a wagon repair shop for many years; Amil, Frank and John, proprietors of the well known Bollinger Bros. barber shop; Josephine, wife of Edward Stutenroth, Mary, widow of the late Henry Scott of Hampshire; Emma, wife of T. J. Ronin, and Miss Clara -- all of whom are residents of Sycamore.
Mrs. Bollinger was an ardent worker and believer in the Catholic church in Hampshire and was always ready and willing to help to go to her reward in Heaven.
The funeral services, which were held in St. Mary's church in this city on Sunday morning, April 4, Rev. Fr. Mullaly, officiating, were very largely attended.
The remains were taken to Hampshire and interred in the Hampshire cemetery, where service was conducted by her former pastor, Rev. Fr. Huth of Hampshire. She was borne to her last resting place by her four sons and two sons-in-law.
