" Mrs. Elizabeth M. Werdehausen, 76, of St. Thomas, died Friday (April 28, 1972) at Memorial Hospital. She was born on Jan. 12, 1896, near St. Thomas, the daughter of Henry and Anna Twehaus Risse. She was married Nov. 25, 1918 to Theodore Joseph Werdehausen, who survives. Mrs. Werdehausen was a member of St. Cecliia Catholic Church, Meta.
Other survivors include: a daughter, Mrs. Virginia Wansing of St. Thomas; three brother - Martin Risse of Marshall, August Risse of St. Thomas and Leo Risse of Meta; and a sister Mrs. Regina Taylor of Sioux City, Iowa.
Funeral services will be held Monday at St. Cecelia's Church with burial in the church cemetery." (source: "Unterrified Democrat" - April 1972)

I noticed in this obit that she was married Nov. 25, 1918. I checked my records and I had 1919 so checked the Meta Marriage records and the correct year is 1919.
