Schulenburg Sticker, Friday, January 16, 1953


Funeral services for Mrs. Sophie Christ, who entered her eternal reward on Saturday, January 10, at 3:30 p.m., were held from the family residence of her daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Kahlich, on Monday, January 12, 1953, at 9:30 a.m. Rev. Albert George Henkes, pastor of St. Mary's Church at High Hill, officiated at the Requiem High Mass and at the interment, which was in the St. Rose Catholic Cemetery.

Mrs. Christ, born on June 7, 1871, in Austria, as the daughter of Carl and Wilhemina Butschek, came to this country at the age of eleven years with her parents. They settled in this community and on October 18, 1892, she was united in marriage to Adolph Christ in the St. Rose Catholic Church. After their marriage, they lived in Hallettsville for three years, and then moved to the Hackberry section where they were engaged in farming. In 1933 they retired and moved to Schulenburg. They celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1942. Her husband preceded her in death on September 13, 1943, and she continued to make her home in Schulenburg until about five years ago when she stayed with her children. She spent the last two and one-half years with her daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Anton W. Kainer at High Hill, where she passed away on Saturday, having reached the age of 81 years, seven months and three days. Deceased had been in ill health for the past several years and suffered a heart attack about three weeks ago.

She was a loving mother and a devout member of the St. Rose Catholic Church and of the St. Mary's Church at High Hill during the time she lived in each place. She was also a member of the Christian Mothers Society, the Altar Society of Schulenburg and of the St. Ann's Society of High Hill.

Those left to survive her are four daughters: Mrs. Henry (Ida) Adamek, Schulenburg; Mrs. Paul (Rosa) Demel, Needville; Mrs. Alfred J. (Emma) Kahlich, Schulenburg; and Mrs. Anton W. (Annie) Kainer, High Hill; three sons, Adolph of High Hill; Alfred of Rosenberg, and Emil of Schulenburg; two sisters, Sister Mary Julia Butschek, Our Lady of the Lake Convent, San Antonio; and Mrs. Adolph (Mary) Anders of Moulton; three brothers, Fred Butschek, Hackberry; Henry Butschek, Moulton and Louis Butschek, Hallettsville; twenty-four grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren. A son passed away in infancy.

Pallbearers were Rudy Adamek, Edgar Demel, Benno Christ, Frank Guenther, James Christ, and Florence Christ, all grandsons of the deceased.
