Hoelscher, Annie (Helmcamp)

Greatly Beloved Lady is Claimed by Death

The people of this section were deeply shocked and grieved last Friday when they learned of the death of Mrs. Annie Hoelscher, beloved wife of Mr. Robert Hoelscher, prominent farmer of the Borden community. The remains were laid to rest in St. Michael's Cemetery Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock, Rev. Jos. Szymanski officiating.

It was known that Mrs. Hoelscher was in bad health, and had been so for many months, although but few of us realized that it was so serious. She was up and about up to a couple of days previous to her death, but husband, family and physicians knew that the end was near. Mrs. Hoelscher was a victim of Bright's disease, and had been in failing health for a number of years. Everything possible was done for her, but it was without avail. She gradually grew weaker, and the end came quickly.

Mrs. Annie Hoelscher, a daughter of the late Wm. Helmcamp and wife, was born and raised in the Sedan community, on the old Helmcamp place, and was 47 years old at time of death. Practically all of her life was spent in the Sedan and Borden communities. She was united in marriage to Mr. Robert Hoelscher in 1901, and the bereaved husband, seven children, Oscar, Edgar, Charlie, Mrs. Frank Freis, Jr., Misses Henrietta, Annie and Emelie, survive together with four brothers and two sisters as follows: Messrs. Emil, William, Edmund and Charles Helmcamp, Mrs. Lena Brossman of Houston and Mrs. Emma Krasucky of Atascosa county.

Mrs. Hoelscher was one of the most pleasant, best women we ever knew. The writer had known her since early girlhood and had a high regard for her. She was always the same --kindly, thoughtful, good woman, interested in all those about her, ever ready to render assistance to anyone needing same, a devoted wife and mother, a good christian woman, one whose place can never be filled.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to her bereaved ones, whose hearts we know are bowed down in deepest grief. May God be merciful to them!
