Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 7, 1864
Woodford County

Death: Jul. 5, 1917
Adams County
Washington, USA

Gretje (Grace) was a daughter of Heinrich and Gesina Seggerman Ludemann and the wife of William Clodius.

The community was saddened by the news of the death of Mrs William Clodius which occurred last Thursday evening, July 5th, at the family home near Ritzville. Death came after four days of acute illness, although she had been unwell for many weeks. Nervous trouble was the cause of her death. The funeral was held Saturday afternoon at the German Lutheran church, conducted by the pastor Rev. O. T. Just. Interment was made in the Ritzville cemetery.

Mrs Clodius' maiden name was Grace Luderman (note: Gretje Ludeman). She was born near Eureka, Ill., on June 7, 1864. She grew to womanhood in that state and was united in marriage to William Clodius at Matamory (note: Metamora), Ill., Dec. 17, 1881. In 1883 they moved to Nebraska where they resided until 1906, when they moved to the state of Washington, locating in Adams County where they have since resided.

To the union were born seven children, one of whom died in infancy. The others are: Henry, Edward and William, Mrs Anna Oestreich and Lena, of Ritzville; and Mrs. Emma Clemie of Sprague. They, with her husband, mourn her departure. Two brothers, Henry Luderman (note: Ludeman), of Montana, and John Luderman (note: Ludeman) of Nebraska, and one sister, Mrs Anna Sloter of Illinois, are also living.
