Nicollet Leader, Nicollet County, Minnesota, June 28, 1913
(
The USGenWeb Archives)

Mrs. P. A. Schons of Granby township died last Saturday morning at 12:45 a.m. at Loretto Hospital, New Ulm, to where she was taken two weeks ago for medical treatment. The deceased had been in poor health the past six months, and no fears were entertained that her demise would come so soon. A day before her death she suffered a paralystic stroke from which she never rallied.

She passed away peacefully surrounded by her husband and six children. Annie Welter was born in Ozaukee county, Wis., Nov. 10, 1861, and when a small girl came to Le Sueur with her parents. About 32 years ago she was united in marriage to Peter A. Schons, who with eleven children survive the loss of a beloved wife and mother. The chiildren are Mrs. Matt Schouveller of Waubun, Minn., Mrs. Joseph Mans of Belgrade; John Schons of Nicollet; Mike Schons of Courtland; Charlie Schons of Granby, and Miss Margaret, Nick, Peter, Joseph, Anton and Leo at the home place in Granby.

The deceased was known to all as a kind hearted Christian woman whose patience with suffering and kindly nature endeared her to all. She was a home loving woman and the best interests of her large family of sons and daughters were ever first in her mind.

The funeral was held from the Middle Lake Catholic church on Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock and was conducted by Rev. W. J. Skluzacek assisted by Rev. John Wagner of New Ulm and Rev. A. Ziskovsky of Comfrey, and interment was made at the church cemetery. The pallbearers were Jos. Ritz, Martin Schouveller, Peter Picker, John Galles, Ed. Leonard and Fred Grommerich. The relatives have the deepest sympathy of the community in their sad bereavement.

NoteLorna Faye Petersen wrote about her grandfather Joseph Welter's death, "Grandpa (Joseph) Welter had beautiful white hair and a moustache - we would laugh at his nightly ritual of finding his cap and wearing it to bed. The nurses at the Tuberculosis Sanitarium spoke of his wanting to wear a nightcap there too. He spent about two years in the sanitarium because of having tuberculosis. ( I spent four years in the same institution for the same reason). It was right after I graduated from Teaching School. Grandpa was on leave from the Sanitarium after Christmas 1946. One night of twenty below zero or lower he and "Jack" (son Clarence Nickolas "Jack" Welter) began walking back to Ray's (son Ray Patrick Welter). They had been to a tavern. We assume Grandpa became exhausted, confused or even had a heart attack trying to find his way back to Ray's. He was found frozen to death. He had a drinking problem."
