Mrs. Fruechtenicht died at her home on Sixth Street in this city on Monday morning after a very long and painful illness. She was confined to her bed continuously for the past year, dying exactly one year to the day she took to her bed. She suffered from Bright's disease and dropsy. She bore her suffering with patient fortitude and was tenderly nursed by her husband, family and friends. In the martrydom of her sickness, she was bright and cheerful and appreciated the kind efforts of those who did their best to assuage her pain.
The deceased was born in Oldenburg, Germany, on October 18, 1833, her maiden name being Almuth Maria Juergens. She came to the United States in 1857 and in the same year was married to J. O. Freuchetenicht at Cleveland, Ohio, which was their home for several years. In 1864 they moved to Dixon, Illinois, and in 1881 the family moved to LeMars and has since resided here. Eight children blessed their union, seven of whom survive. One son Henry died in infancy. The children are Eliza Amelia Lucia, St. Joseph, Missouri; Lena Johanna Fritz, Estherville, Iowa; Mary Louise Armfield, Wayne, Nebraska; Emma Christina Schauer, Garretson, South Dakota; Tillie Margaretha Duerig, Wayne, Nebraska; William Winn, St. Joseph, Missouri, and John Otto, Leeds, Iowa. There are nineteen grandchildren.
Mrs. Fruechtenicht was a loving mother and wife and a devoted Christian. On coming to LeMars, she affiliated with the United Evangelical Church and was a constant member and church worker.
