OLD LADY DIES QUICKLY
Brief Illness Terminates in the Death of Mrs. Benish, Mother of Mrs. Leo Wiesner.
Mrs. Bertha Benish, who for nearly sixteen years had lived with her daughter, Mrs. Leo Wiesner, 810 Main street, died very suddenly and unexpectedly at 5 o'clock last Sunday morning. She was apparently in her usual health the day before and gave no indication of illness until about 4 o'clock Sunday, when Mrs. Wiesner noticed her labored breathing and applied home remedies. The venerable lady again went to sleep, but it was nearly a couple of hours later that the family became convinced that she passed into the long last slumber. In the meantime Dr. Rice had been summoned and found his patient beyond human aid.
Bertha Ruscha was born in Lukovitz, Austria, Sept 15, 1826. and she was therefore in the 86th year of her age.
She married Emanuel Benish in her native land, the family coming to this country nearly fifty years ago and locating in Milwaukee, where Mr.Benish died some eighteen years ago. After her daughter's marriage, Mrs. Benish came to Stevens Point and this had since been her home. Because of the infirmities of age, she went out very rarely, but was recognized among her neighbors and others who knew her as a truly good woman.
Besides Mrs. Wiesner, there are surviving another daughter and son, Mrs. Theo. Morris and Sam Benish, both of Milwaukee.
Mrs. Wiesner and son, Emanuel, and Mrs. Max Wirth accompanied the body to Milwaukee on the limited Soo train Tuesday morning, and it was there conveyed to the chapel at Spring Hill cemetery, where funeral services were conducted by Rabbi Victor Caro. Interment followed beside Mrs. Benish's husband.
Those who served as pallbearers here were I. Shafton, E. Frank, I. Weltman, Sigmund Green, David Kalisky and I. Bunin.
