Mathilda (Moeller) Luehrs [1825 – 1903] Chilton Times April 25, 1903
The death of Mrs. Henry Luehrs, which had been momentarily expected for some time, occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Henry Lotz, on Tuesday, April 20, aged 78 years.
Mathilda Moeller was born in Altona, Germany, April 3, 1825. She was married to Henry Luehrs in 1847 and in 1857 they emigrated to this country, settling at Plymouth, Sheboygan County. Here they remained until 1867 when they purchased a farm in the town of Charlestown, this county, and immediately moved on to the same. Since the death of her husband which occurred some years ago, she has made her home with her son Otto, who lives on the old homestead, and daughters. Mmes. Michael Vincent and Henry Lotz.
For forty years she has been afflicted with rheumatism, suffering excruciating pain during this long period of time with a degree of patience and unselfishness that astonished her friends and family. She was a good woman and her reward was assuredly awaiting her in the world beyond the grave.
Three children survive her, one son, Otto Luehrs, of Charlestown, and two daughters, Mrs. Michael Vincent, of Grand Rapids, Wis., and Mrs. Henry Lotz, of this city.
The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon from the residence of Mr. Henry Lotz, where Judge E. W. Paulsen delivered an eloquent eulogy on the deceased, interment at the New Holstein cemetery followed.
