Mrs. Bernhardt Heller

Mrs. Caroline Elizabeth Heller, nee Rhyme, was born as the daughter of Mr. Aug. Rhyme and his wife Christiana nee Lash on Aug. 21, 1862, in Bloomfield, Walworth Co., Wis. As a small child she came with her parents to Burr Oak. She was confirmed in her Christian faith in the Burr Oak Lutheran Church and remained faithful member of the congregation, until her recent death. On Nov. 21, 1883 she was united in marriage to Mr. Bernhardt Heller, and since her marriage lived in the Heller Coulee, about six miles due east of Mindoro. Her marriage was blessed with four children, all of whom survive her.
Mrs. Heller had been ailing since last summer. A week ago Sunday Feb. 15, her ailment suddenly became acute, and she was taken to the St. Mary's Hospital at Sparta for an appendicitis operation. The operation was not successful, and another operation was preformed last Wednesday. Although her condition was critical, yet her death came suddenly and unexpectedly last Friday morning, Feb. 20, 1931, at eight o'clock. She attained the age of 68 years and six months.
Mrs. Heller was a faithful Christian, who know and loved her Savior and in her parting she leaves a good example to her many relatives and friends.
Those nearest and dearest to her, who mourn her departure, are her husband, Mr. Bernhardt Heller; her four children: Mrs. Olie Peters, Miss Emma, Fred and Mrs. Helen Kastenschmidt; seven grandchildren; two brothers; and three sisters.
Funeral services were conducted last Monday afternoon, Feb. 23, in the Burr Oak Ev. Lutheran Church. Interment was made in the Burr Oak Lutheran Cemetery.
