DIED - FUESING - At the home of her daughter, Mrs. Gertrude Schellpfeffer, 110 N. University Place, this city, at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, February 25th, 1922, Mrs. Elizabeth Klaff, widow of the late Bernard Fuesing, sr., aged 85 years, 10 months and 22 days.

The deceased was a native of Germany, having been born in West Phalia on April 3, 1836. She had been in ill health but a few days, death being due to the infirmities incident to her advanced age.

Elizabeth Klaff came to this country with her parents when a young girl and settled on a farm near Milwaukee, where she continued to reside until her marriage on October 18th, 1854, to Mr. Bernard Fuesing. In 1856 they purchased a farm near Mayville, where they lived until about nine years ago, at which time they came to Beaver Dam to spend their declining years in retirement among their children. Mr. Fuesing passed away here about five years ago, and three children preceded the parents in death.

The surviving children are Mrs. Gertrude Schellpfeffer of this city, Mrs. Bernard Neihoff of the town of Beaver Dam, Henry and Bernard Neihoff [sic] of this city. She is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Wm. Deinburg of Menominee Falls, Wis.

Funeral services were held at St. Peter's church at nine o'clock Tuesday morning with interment in St. Peter's cemetery. The services were in charge of Rev. Fr. George J. Muenzer.
