Mrs. Christina Althen, 77, a well-known and life long resident of the county who made Two Rivers her home for 74 years, died Saturday afternoon at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Joseph Campbell of Milwaukee, with whom she was living for the last two months. Mrs. Althen had been in failing health for the last seven months with death due to complication of diseases. She had been attended by her daughter here for several months and when the latter returned to her home in Milwaukee, the mother took up her home with her.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 o’clock from her home at 1715 Thirteenth street and at two oclock from the St. Johns Lutheran church with Rev. W. G. Haase officiating. Interment will be at Pioneers Rest cemetery. The remains were brought back to this city from Milwaukee by Beduhn and Goetz Sunday morning.

Mrs. Althen, nee Christina Bender, was born in the town of Centervillle,December 4, 1856. She had been summoned a day before her 78th birthday anniversary. She was the daughter of the late John and Louise Bender, one of the pioneer families of the city, who moved to this city when Mrs. Althen was two years old. She had been a resident of the southside for more than 60 years. Sixty years ago she was married to Henry Althen, a Civil War veteran, who preceded her in death 40 years ago.
