Julia Wuest: translated from the german: “Sadness entered the house of our fellow citizen and businessman, Mr. Vincent Wuest, on Broadway. His wife, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mathias Kraemer from here, had been ailing for some time. The hope for improvement remained, but was not realized. On Monday, the patient was taken to the hospital in Marshfield by her husband and Mr. Conrad Niggemann. The malady, an abcess on the lung, had gone too far, and Mrs. Wuest was not strong enough for surgery. Within two days came a telegram that her condition was critical, so her mother, Mrs. Mathias Kraemer, traveled to Marshfield on Wednesday. Mrs. Wuest was delivered from her suffering on Thursday when she died 15 minutes after surgery was completed. May she rest in peace. The deceased was 28 years old and had been married to Mr. Vincent Wuest for 6 years. She leaves her grieving husband and three small children, the oldest of which was 5 years in October, the second was 3 in August, and the youngest is 7 months old. She also leaves her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Mathias Kraemer, a brother, Mr. John Kraemer in Washington, and 5 sisters, namely: Anna, Mrs. Christ. Ziemer, from here; Franciska, Mrs. Max Hirsch, in Minnesota; Eva, Mrs. Will Cowella, in Canada; and the two unmarried sisters Helena and Albina. We extend our sincere sympathy to them. Because the relatives will come from far away, the funeral will first take place on Monday morning in church.” taken from the Medford “Taylor County Leader”, Saturday, August 7, 1909, p.11.

Julia Wuest: translated from the german: “Mr. Henry Hirsch with his wife and Mr. John Paustenbach came on Monday from Abbotsford to attend the funeral of Mrs. Julia Wuest. Mrs. William Colwell, sister of the deceased, arrived on Tuesday from Novia Scotion, Canada. Unfortunately, she came one day late and was unable to attend the funeral. The funeral procession was one of the longest here in Medford in recent memory.” taken from the Medford “Taylor County Leader”, Saturday, August 14, 1909, p.1.

Julia Wuest: translated from the german: “Thanks. I would like to express my thanks for the many flower arrangements and generous sympathy attestations given on the occasion of my wife Julia’s death by so many friends, especially the ones from the Ladies’ Order of the Catholic Foresters and the Royal Neighbors.” taken from the Medford “Taylor County Leader”, Saturday, August 14, 1909, p. 10.
