Anna M Luehr New Holstein Reporter - Wednesday - September 28, 1910
Mrs. Anna Margarethe Luehr, nee Groth, passed peacefully out of this life on Friday morning at the home of her son, John Luehr at Milwaukee at the age of 85 years, 7 months and 11 days. She had seemingly been in the best of health for sometime past and her death came as an unexpected blow to her dutiful sons. Old age was the cause of taking this beautiful life from our midst.
Miss Anna Margarethe Groth was born at Borgholt, Schleswig, Holstein, Germany, on December 12, 1824. Her parents dying when she was eight years old, she then went to live with her Uncle. In 1854 she was married to John Nicholas Luehr and four years later they immigrated to America and purchased a farm on the old State road now owned by John Bruns. On March 19, 1900, her husband died. She then made her home with her son, William, school principal at Manitowoc for ten years. She then went to Milwaukee, living with her son, John, where her demise took place last Friday morning.
There remains four sons, William Luehr, High School principal at Sheboygan Falls, John Luehr of Milwaukee, Dr. Edward Luehr a practicing physician of Chicago, and Arthur Luehr a real estate and insurance dealer at the same place, to mo{u}rn the loss of a good mother, also seven grand children.
She was always a loving and devoted wife who had shared the lot of her husband with a brave and determined heart never failing to administer kind and loving words to him when worldly thing per{p}lexed the brain of the rugged pioneer. She took great interest in her sons and lived so that they would be the better for it and gave them a love that bound them to her with an ever increasing devotion.
When Edward Luehr was taking a post-graduate course in medicine at Berlin, Germany, he took time to visit the birthplace of his mother in order to be able to recall old scenes to her memory that would greatly please her. It was a great visit they had together about three weeks ago when he returned and visited with her at Milwaukee. The remains were brought here for burial on the 9:40 o'clock train Monday and taken to the Reformed church where the funeral took place, Rev. Th. Schildknecht officiating. The remains were interred in the New Holstein cemetery beside those of her husband.
