I would like to please ask to take up a few lines of the dear paper so that my relatives in Russia and Canada can learn that my dear mother, wife of Siegfried Sahli passed away on the 2nd of May this year in Aberdeen, S. D. The deceased was born in the year 1849 in South Russia and emigrated to the United States in 1889 from Russia. She reached the age of 65 years and 24 days. She had lived for the past 13 months in Aberdeen, South Dakota where she also departed from this life. The funeral procession was very large with a Womans Organization of 175 escorting her to the grave.
She leaves behind her 66 year old husband, my father, Siegfried Sahli, 5 sons and 1 daughter. Four of the sons are married and one son, 18 years old, is still single. The daughter is married also, to Peter Buckemeier. She also leaves 20 grandsons and 2 granddaughters. Of the brothers and sisters she leaves one brother Joseph Kreitel and one sister Marianna, married to Jakob Eberle. 3 brothers and 3 sisters preceded the deceased in death.
May eternal light shine upon her and may she rest in peace!
Notes: This Womens Organization may have been an Alter Society or a St. Ann's Society made up of women from the parish.
