Zenzel, Anna (17 MAY 1863 - 2 AUG 1930)

Anna Blasel was born in Craemetschau, Austria, May 17, 1863 and came to the United States with her parent when she was about eighteen years of age.

On May 15, 1885, in Dorchester, Clark Co., Wis., she was united in marriage with Matthew Zenzel. They established their home on a farm near Curtiss, Clark Co. To this union three children were born, Minnie, Anna and Albert. They continued to live on the farm until 1916 when they retired and moved into Curtiss where they resided until the dath of Mr. Zenzel a little over two years ago. Since that time Mrs. Zenzel has made her home with the children.

Mrs. Zenzel was during the larger part of her life a member of the Reformed Lutheran Church, but in recent years attended the Congregational Church at Curtiss, Wis. While in Tomahawk she attended the Methodist church and always took quite an active interest in the women’s organizations.

She met accidental death while riding in a car Saturday, August 2. Mrs. Zenzel is survived by her three children, Mrs. Oscar Sutherland of Tomahawk, Wis., Mrs. Will Williams of Curtiss, Wis., and Albert Zenzel of Withee, Wis., also three brothers, Clemet and Rudolph Blasel of Stetsonville and Frank of Minocqua, and a sister, Mrs. Ed Anderson of Curtiss, together with nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Zenzel was an old resident of Curtiss and hence well known and highly respected by the community. While living with her daughter, Mrs. Oscar Sutherland of Tomahawk she revealed herself as a woman of very sweet, congenial and self-sacrificing spirit. Her presence will be missed by all those who knew her.

Funeral service was at the Congregational Church, Curtiss, Tuesday, August 6, at 2:30 p.m., with interment in Hillside (actually Pine Hill in town of Mayville) Cemetery, the Rev. W.P. Powell officiating.
