The obituary of Wilhelmina Albertine Bann Knuth

The Augusta Union.  Dated Thursday, May 1942 - Augusta Newspaper later know as the Augusta Area Times  

Wilhelmine Albertine Bann, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bann was born April 243 1881 in West Prussia Germany. 

At the age of three, her parents moved to this country settling in the vicinity of Augusta.     Her baptismal vow of loyalty to her Savior was renewed at confirmation in 1893. 

In 1903 she entered holy matrimony with Mr. William Knuth, with whom she lived happily for over 40 years.    

 During the last two months she endured bodily suffering for the relief of which she submitted to an operation of Saturday.  However, the Lord saw fit to relieve her of all suffering at once and gathered her home. 

She is deeply mourned by her husband, four sons and four daughters: Margaret Sperber of the Town of Bridge Creek, Mrs. Adela Sperber of Cadott, Mr. Albert Knuth of Augusts, Mr. Erwin Knuth of Augusts, Mrs. Ester Moen of Augusts, Herbert and John at home.  Her aged mother Mrs. Fred Bann of Augusts and 13 grandchildren, one brother Mr. William Bann of Stanley and one sister.  Mrs. Lena Smith of Augusts.  One daughter Theresa died in Infancy. 

Their earthly family circle is broken but the heavenly circle is slowly being gilled.  May God grant that we may be numbered in the holly circle through Lord Jesus Christ   She had attained the age of 61 and 13 days.
