The Palmer Journal, March 10, 1938, page 1, transcribed by Linda Berney

Anna von Aschwege, the eldest child of Diedrich von Aschwege and Helene Catherine (nee Boelts) was born in Oldenburg, Germany, near the village of Edewecht, on June 9, 1863. About five years later the parents brought her and her three-year-old brother, Herman Christian, to America. The family settled first in St. Clair county, Illinois, near Bellville. After two years they moved on to Washington county in the same state near Nashville, and the village of Hoyleton. Here they remained 11 years, and here Anna von Aschwege secured her schooling, and grew into womanhood. Here also, her younger sister was born.

In the fall of the year 1881, the family came to Nebraska, to make their permanent home in Merrick county, on the farm where Anna was to reside until her departure from this life on March 2nd, 1938. She attained the age of 74 years and nine months.

In early life Anna von Aschwege had a deep Christian experience and while still in Illinois, joined the Methodist church. She was a member of this denomination for over 40 years. For fifteen years her membership was with the Zion Evangelical Church.

She had a kind disposition and a tender heart. She was ever true, faithful and conscientious in fulfilling her duties.

She leaves to mourn her passing, one brother, H. C. von Aschwege, one sister, Mrs. John Schutz, six nephews, two nieces and a host of relatives and friends.

Funeral services conducted by Rev. H. E. Kramer were held at the Archer Evangelical church last Friday afternoon and burial was made in the cemetery at the little German Methodist church south of Palmer.

The Zamzow quartet rendered the music, with Mrs. Harvey Bonness at the piano. Her six nephews were pallbearers: Wesley and Henry Schutz, Arthur, Paul, Raymond and Arnold von Aschwege.
