Lulu Luehrs [1878 1886] Chilton Times --- December 4, 1886

On Sunday, Nov. 28th, at on o'clock p.m. when the crystal snow, was falling thick and fast, as if to enshroud the whole earth with its pure white mantle, in deep sympathy with the occasion of which our frail pet endeavors to relate although it quivers with anxiety at the undertaking, and betimes ceases entirely, in order, to dash away a transient tear, or reflect with untold sorrow for the past and pause at the future because the end is not yet. Yes amid these scenes; when clouds and darkness seemed to drape the canopy of Heave3n, and the pure white snows descend to earth, so it was with the people of Hayton for their hearts and minds were clouded with sorrow, and warm tears of sympathy fell thick and fast as they followed the remains of Mrs. Otto Luehrs to their last resting place in that haven of rest, that peaceful home, where contagion no more occurs and the weary soul finds rest.
It has been the sad misfortune of this, our respected neighbor and honored citizen, to have the deadly disease, "diphtheria," enter into his family circle as the "gaunt wolf enters the fold" to destroy the most precious, and distract the others with fear and hardships that can only be overcome by long years of prosperity and forgetfulness. In this capacity, the happy family consisting of father, mother and six children, the oldest ten years and the youngest eleven months were living in peace and plenty, at their home in this village, where sickness scarcely entered and where sorrow was unknown; when assalted by this terrible malady; and as the tenderest flower is quickest to suffer from the blight, so the blighting disease was the first to fasten its deathly pangs on the fairest flower of the family, their little Lulu, who at the tender age of about nine years, just old enough perhaps to realize the extent of the broad swath of death mown by his awful scythe, and yet too young to have acquired the hardness and fortitude necessary to withstand its terrible effects, be this as it is, after about ten days of intense suffering her youthful soul took flight and her remains were slowly borne to the cemetery at New Holstein, where they were laid to rest by the sympathizing hands of stalwart men.
