Fanny Hinrichs Kalkwarf Oltman
Birth: May 17, 1859
Death: Apr. 14, 1919

Mrs Remmer Oltman died at her home Monday afternoon at 2:05. She had been sick for a number of years but about a week ago she was stricken with influenza and this combined with her other ailments caused her death at the age of 59 years and 11 months.

Fanny Hinrichs Kalkwarf was born May 17, 1859 in Clayton township. When a month old she was baptized at St Peter's Lutheran church. Here she was also confirmed in the year 1876. On the 27th of October of 1886, she was united in marriage to Remmer Oltman. This union was blessed with six children, four sons and two daughters.

They lived on their farm in Greene township until February of this year when her lingering illness made it neccessary for them to move to town where a nice home had been bought. She went through many trials and had to suffer more than she could almost bear, especially in the last two years. Very often she thought her end was near and she prepared herself to meet the Saviour in whom she trusted. Mrs Oltman was always a faithful worker in her home and it was not until she was compelled to yield to her sickness that she gave up the duties of her household.

Those left to mourn her death are her husband, four sons, John, Henry, Hallie and Frank; two daughters, Mrs Herman Peters and Mrs Fred Seifert; one sister, Mrs Henry Heineke of Benson; one brother, Frank Kalkwarf of Rochelle, eight grandchildren, besides other relatives and many friends. The funeral was held Thursday at 1 p.m. and she was laid to rest at St Peter's cemetery, Rev. J.W. Hafermann officiating.
