Mrs. John Wild, nee Theresa Sterr, one of Mayville's well known and respected citizens, passed away in death on Friday, Dec. 29th at 12:30 P. M., death resulting from infirmities of advanced age.

Mrs. Wild born in Germany on Feb. 3rd 1838 and would have reached the fine old age of 85 years next month. She came to this country with her parents in 1847 who settled in town Le Roy. There she was married to John Wild on July 4th 1856. The young couple lived on a farm and moved to this city 27 years ago. The union was blessed with five sons and two daughters, namely Frank and John, Elmwood, Pierce, Co., Frank, Amhearst, Edward, Leland, Miss., Michael in this city and Emilie, Mrs. Louis Reese of Cumberland, Wis., and Bertha, Mrs. Rudolph Spiering, this city. Besides these she is survived by 17 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

Her husband preceded her in death in August 1916 after 60 years of married happiness.

The funeral, which was largely attended, took place Tuesday morning from the late home, on School street to St. Mary's Cath. church, the Rev. Father Kramer officiating and she was laid to rest besides her husband in Graceland cemetery.

Mrs. Wild was a true and lovable woman, in her affections and duties toward her family as well as in her relations to those outside of her home. Patiently she bore her lot and suffering until her Master called. Love and honor will cling to her memory.
