OBITUARY - Died at her residence in Thiensville, Wis. December 21st, 1883 in the 62nd year of her age, Mrs. Eliza Zimmermann, widow of the late William Zimmermann Esq. of that place, after a painful and protracted illness.
Her husband had preceeded her into eternity in the spring of 1878, to whom she was one of the best wives as she was to her children an excellent mother. The deceased was a sister of Hon. Wm. Carbys and they, together with their parents were among the first settlers of the place where they enjoyed the esteem and confidence of all their neighbors. The funeral took place last Sunday and would have been very largely attended from abroad but for the great snow storm prevailing at the time. Peace to her ashes.
