Obituary for Mrs. Moege

Mrs. Christine Moege, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Christian Gerlach was born on September 28, 1864, in one of the small villages close to the city of Ohlan in the Province of Silesia from where the most of the old time settlers in the Hillside and Flensburg neighborhood came. A short time after her birth she was baptized in the name of the triune God and after her school years she renewed her baptismal vows and was confirmed.

There in her home village she grew up to young womanhood and in 1883 she immigrated with her parents to America. They settled on the prairie of the former Dakota Territory. Here, later, she was married to Daniel Moege and there on the same old prairie on her husbands homestead both pioneered and built up there home, where she lived until her death.

In 1906 her beloved husband died and left her with two daughters. All the 70 years she lived in this community where she was a faithful and active member of the Emmanuel Congregation of Flensburg. On September 28 she celebrated her 89th birthday shortly after she became sick and died in the Parkston Hospital on Friday, October 2, 1953. She attained the old age of 89 years and 4 days. Her husband and two sons, who died in infancy, preceded her in death. (even though Christiana’s obituary states she lost two sons she lost two daughters.)

Surviving her are two daughters, Mrs. Emil Schulz and Mrs. William Reimnitz, and son-in-law a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren, many nephews, nieces and a host of friends. May she rest in peace.
