DIED KORTE--Mrs. Christina Korte, 76, member of a pioneer Nebraska family, a resident of Colfax and Platte counties during the past 59 years, died at her home, 2202 Twentieth street, at 11:45 p.m. Sunday. She had been suffering with diabetes and complications during the last two years, her condition becoming critical two weeks ago, when she became bedfast. A native of Germany she was born on Feb. 4, 1855, in the province of Mechlenberg-Schwerin. In 1873 she migrated to the United States with her parents, the last Mr. and Mrs. John Barner and located on a farm in Colfax county near Schuyler. Her marriage to William Korte was solemnized at the Evangelical Lutheran church on Loseke creek on Sept. 24, 1880, Rev. Ernst A. Frese officiating at the ceremony. They established their home on a farm 12 miles northwest of Schuyler in the Bissel neighborhood, where Mr. Korte's death occurred in 1896. In 1911, Mrs. Korte left the farm and moved into Columbus, where she has since resided. She is survived by two sons and six daughters: Adolph Korte, Carl W. Korte, Mrs. Johannes Behrens, Mrs. J. P. Hunteman, Miss Rose Korte, Mrs. Alfred Plugge and Mrs. Adolph Hoge, jr., all of Columbus, and Mrs. William F. Loseke, of Monroe. Another daughter, Mrs. George Loseke, died in 1910. There are 24 grandchildren and 12 great grand-children. Mrs. Korte, a devout member of the Lutheran faith, was a charter member of St. John's church, 15 miles northeast of Columbus, and also of Trinity Lutheran church here. The body will lie in state at the Gass Funeral home until Tuesday evening, when it will be removed to the Korte residence. A brief prayer service will be held at the home at 1 p.m. Wednesday preceding services at Trinity Lutheran church at 1:30 o'clock. Rev. Herman Goede, the pastor, will officiate there, and will also have charge of the rites at Calvary cemetery near St. John's church, where burial will be made beside the body of Mr. Korte.
