Death of Mrs Katherine Mayers Occured Saturday at Home of Son South of New Munich.
It is very unusual these days to chronicle the death of one whose life has extended over a century of years, and particularly noteworthy therefor was the death last Saturday morning at 7 o'clock of Mrs Mayers at the age of 101 years, 11 months and 15 days. Death occured at the home of her son, Math Mayers, living 5 miles south of the village of New Munich.
Mrs Mayers was born in Trear, Germany, on April 10, 1820. She came to the United States in 1845 and lived with relatives in Sheyboygan, Wis., for several years. In 1859 she married to Michael Mayers at Sheboygan and they continued to live there until the year 1882 when they came to Stearns county and settled on a farm south of New Munich were her death occured. Her husband's death occured nine years ago.
About two years ago Mrs Mayers had the misfortune of breaking her hip in falling down the cellar stairs. On account of her advanced age the break did not heal and she was confined to her bed since, and it is remarkable at her age to be able to live 2 years after an injury of that nature.
Mrs Mayers showed unusual vitality until the very last, her hearing and sight being little impaired and her mind and memory fairly clear. Her death came fairly quietly and was due to her advanced age.
Surviving are 61 descendants; five children, forty-one grandchildren, and fifteen great grandchildren. The children are John, Math and Frank Mayers, and Mrs Barney Hoppe (Susan) of New Munich and Mrs Mike Klein (Lucille) of St. Anthony.
Funeral services were held at the Immaculate Conception church at New Munich Tuesday morning at 9:30 o'clock. Seven grand-daughters acted as pall bearers. Internment was made in the parish cemetery. Rev. Gerard officiated.
