DIED SUDDENLY AT DAUGHTER’S HOME
Mrs Wiebke C Ruther Stroh of Sterling, Stricken last Friday morning.
Death came suddenly to Mrs. Wiebke Christina (Ruther) STROH, respected resident of Sterling, and mother of Mrs A J Steinlicht last Friday morning at 9 o’clock. Mrs Stroh was stricken very suddenly, and her death occurred before medical aid could be secured. Wiebke Christina (Ruther) Stroh was well known in American Falls, having visited on numerous occasions at the Steinlicht home. She was 80 years of age, and for the past six months had been visiting a daughter in Los Angeles, California. Returning here some 2 days ago, Mrs. Stroh had been residing with another daughter, Mrs. Gus Neubauer of Sterling. Her long visit in California had apparently been very beneficial to her health, and when she returned here had been hale and hearty. She arose Friday morning in the best of spirits, but a half hour later complained of pain in her chest. Within thirty minutes death had claimed her.
Mrs. Wiebke Christina (Ruther) STROH had lived in Idaho since 1912, making her home in this city until the fall of 1919. In that year she removed to Nampa, and five years ago went to Sterling, where she had since resided. She was the mother of ten children, four of whom have preceded her in death.
Left to mourn her passing are six children, as follows: Fred Stroh, Saybrook, Mclean, Illinois; Mrs. G.T. Dalton, Manzanola, Colorado; Mrs. A J Steinlicht, American Falls, Idaho; Mrs. H C Martens, Anaheim, California; Mrs. J W Andrews, Los Angeles, California and Mrs. Gus Neubauer, Sterling. She also leaves 31 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
Funeral services were conducted from the Lutheran church in Aberdeen last Sunday afternoon. The rites were in charge of the Davis mortuary of this city, with Rev. W.B. Maier, pastor of the church, officiating. Interment was made in the Fallview cemetery here. Pallbearers were John Tiede, Harold Breding, Fred Herr, Chris ?, Wm. Strohschlem, and ? Rast.
