    Died:
    • CATHERINE (PETERS) SCHREINER was born in Sellnrod, Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany, Sept. 9, 1836 and peacefully passed away at Lanark, Ill. Tuesday Dec. 19, 1911 at 11:30 a. m. at the age of 75 yrs. 3 mos. 10 days. In 1848 she with other members of the family came to America, and located in Rock Creek Twp. Carroll Co., Ill. and has ever since resided in this vicinity. In May 20, 1855 she was united in marriage to Peter Schreiner and for 44 years they shared life?s joys and sorrows together. About twelve years ago he preceded her in death and since that time she has made her home with the children. Seven children, three sons and four daughters, were born unto them, all of whom are living and all were present at the funeral. They are: John P., Mrs. Christina Bergeman; Mrs. Adelaide Wilhelm; Wesley G.; Mrs. Melinda Michael; Mrs. Rosa Bloyer; and Albert A., all of Carroll county. In 1856 she entered the Christian life under the labors of Rev. R. Dubs, united with the Evangelical church, and remained a faithful member of the church of her choice up to the time of her departure. She was a charter member of the Middle Creek Evangelical Church. The cause of her somewhat unexpected death was pleuro-pneumonia with which she suffered nine days. Early in her illness she seemed to realize that her time had come and she committed herself and her loved ones to the Lord. She leaves to mourn her death three sons, four daughters, ten grandchildren, two brothers, two sisters, besides other relatives and friends. The funeral services were held on Friday afternoon at the Middle Creek Evangelical church and were conducted by Rev. R. S. Welch, of Brookville, and Rev. J. G. Finkbeiner, of Freeport.
