OLD TIME CITIZEN OF WEIMAR SECTION IS CLAIMED BY DEATH
The sad news was brought to town Monday night that Mrs. Annie Thumann, well known and popular aged lady resident of this section, had passed away. Mrs. Thumann was known to be seriously ill for several weeks past, but being of a naturally rugged disposition, it was thought by many that she would successfully battle that spell of ill health. However, it was not to be. God's finger touched her and she slept.
Mrs. Thumann (nee Schwardt[sic][Schmand]) was born July 15, 1856 in Casel Germany. She was married to Mr. Fritz Thumann, also of Germany on Oct. 7, 1880. The couple came to Texas in 1883. The greater part of her life and her husband (who passed on a number of years ago) were spent in the Weimar section. Her health failing some years ago after the death of her beloved husband, she broke up housekeeping and had alternated in living with her children here and there. Mrs. Thumann was a kindhearted, good woman, a devoted wife and mother at all times, a splendid neighbor and friend. Her passing is deeply and sincerely regretted by family and friends.
She is survived by one brother living in Germany. Mr. Martin Schwandt[sic][Schmandt], and six living children--Henry Thumann of Houston, Carl Thumann of Yoakum, Otto and Hugo Thumann of Weimar, Mrs. Fritz Beken of Houston and Oscar Thumann of Port O'Connor. There is also one step-daughter surviving, as follows; Mrs. John Maertens of Alice. Also 31 grandchildren, 20 step-grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and 38 step-great-grandchildren.
Pall bearers for the funeral were Messrs. F. A. Seifert, Henry Heimann, Otto Tesch, Fred Froehlich, Ad. Dahse and Arthur Koehn. [Interment in New Bielau Cemetery]
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to her bereaved ones.

Born Frederick Thumann to Charles Thumann a farmer, and Leola Perkins, a homemaker on December 18, 1922.in Bentonville, Texas in Jim Wells County. He was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Leola, sisters Ada and Velta and beloved brother Carl. Fred was married to Mary Jerileen Greene in Baycliff, Texas August 3, 1954. Mr Thumann was a long time resident of Houston, and surrounding cities. This is where he raised his six children who spent his final days by his bed side. Fred is survived by his son Bruce and wife Tina Thumann of Pasadena, Tx., grandson Jason Thumann and great grandson Kyser Thumann, granddaughter Carrie, son Pierce of Pasadena, Tx, son Steve Thumann and wife Adelcida of Kingwood, Tx, granddaughter Michelle Thumann, daughter Patricia Cordray and husband Kenny Cordray of Nassau Bay, Tx, grandson Coleman Cordray and Kelly Cordray, granddaughter Julia Cordray, daughter Rebecca Mullin and husband James Postell of Alvin, Tx, grandson John Eagleton lll and Garrett Eagleton daughter Deborah Thumann-Pavlosky and husband James Pavlosky ll of Seabrook, Tx grandson Lucas Pavloskk and granddaughters Marla Pavlosky and Carlye Pavlosky. This is merely a list of immediate family, it does not include the numerous other family members and dear friends who will miss his presence.
Fred was a veteran of WWll. He honorably served his country in the Army from 1943 to 1945 in the New Guinea Campaign where he received the Asiatic Pacific Theater Ribbon, a Bronze Service Star and a Philippine Liberation Ribbon. In his first tour of duty, he served as a Technician ,5th grade of the 3443D Ordinance MAM Co. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 1945 and served again from 1945 to 1946 In his second tour, he served as a Technician 5th grade Troop D, 82nd Mechanized Calvary Reconnaissance Squadron. He earned a Asiatic Pacific Theater Occupation Metal and Japan WWll Victory Metal He also attended service school for plumbing. He was honorably discharged in 1946. Many remember his tales from serving in New Guinea with friend Mr Babb at his side
After serving his country, Fred was known to always have a hammer in his hand. A carpenter and home builder in South Houston, Deer Park, Pasadena and Houston, he started his first business, Thumann Supply Co.and then Custom Built Door and Supply. In the early 1960's, Pasadena Sash and Door, Inc. opened its doors and sold millwork nation wide through the late1980's. And with much determination and expectation, Fred opened a metal door manufacturing company in Houston known as Door Town, Inc.
If not at the “The Shop” Fred could be found at the ranch in Seadrift, Texas hunting deer, watching wildlife or making sausage, for which he would raise a hog every year. He enjoyed fishing, crabbing and flounder gigging in Galveston Bay, having big seafood feasts with family and playing dominoes at the beach house. He enjoyed preparing for the yearly Thumann Reunions at the New Bielau Community Center just south of Weimar. Texas. Always on the hottest Sunday in August.
He could be found at home in his work shop or gardening, growing vegetables, fruit trees and grapes to make his own wine. In later years he spent much of time at home with his son Pierce
who lived with him and cared for him and his dogs Max and Pee Wee.
Fred was well known for helping others. From buying and delivering groceries for those in need, building a bathroom for a home without one., helping new business owners get started or providing financial assistance, he was always quietly doing what we refer to now as “random acts of kindness” His compassion and empathy for others was great. We will never know all who were touched by his benevolent spirit.
Mr. Thumann, Fred, Freddy, Faddy, Uncle Fred, Dad, Papaw and Poppa are how he was known. Whatever name we called him there are some things we will all remember. We will all remember the suspenders and belt he wore with his work clothes, we will all remember his funny grin under those glasses , we will all remember how much he loved his dogs, we will remember his telling us”What else” or “What ever” and we will all remember that every thing he did was done out of love for his family.

Sudden Death of a Truly Good Man
Expressions of sincere regret were heard on every hand Friday when news of the death of Mr. Fritz Thumann reached here. His death occurred at St. Joseph's Infirmary in Houston, where he had been a few days previous for an appendicitis operation. He passed through this operation safely, we are told, but when pneumonia developed and other complications set in, it was realized the end was near, and our good friend of many years’ standing soon passed into that other and better world.
The body was prepared for burial, brought to the family home in Weimar Saturday at noon, and on Sunday afternoon was laid to rest in the cemetery at New Bielau, followed to his last resting place by myriads of sorrowing friends. Rev. O. A. Meyer, Evangelical minister, officiated in a touching burial service.
Fritz Thumann was born in Lippedetmold. Germany, April 20, 1877, and came to America at the age of 5 years with his parents. The family first settled in the New Bielau community. His first wife, Miss Mathilda Koym, passed away In 1914, leaving three daughters, Alma, Wilma and Mrs. Harvey Lee. In 1918 he was married to Miss Norma Schmand of Houston, and in 1920 they moved to the city of Weimar, where he lived up to the time of his death.
Before moving to Weimar Mr. Thumann was engaged in farming. Moving to Weimar he engaged in the garage and filling station business, later building a hotel and engaging also in that line of business. In these occupations he built up a large and profitable business. He died Friday, Jan. 20, at I p. m, aged 55 years and 9 months.
He is survived by his widow, three daughters, Miss Wilma, Miss Alma and Mrs. Harvey Lee, all of Weimar; also five brothers, Oscar of Lolita, Henry of Houston, Charlie of Port Lavaca, Hugo and Otto of the Weimar section, and three sisters, Mrs. John Maertens of Alice, Mrs. Adolf Popp of Gordon, Mrs. Fritz Beken of La Ward, and a stepmother, Mrs. Annie Thumann.
Fritz Thumann was a man whom to know was to esteem highly. He was honest, upright of character, possessed a genial personality, ever proved himself a faithful and devoted husband and father, was true as steel to his friends, and a thoroughly likeable[sic] man in every respect. If he had an enemy in this world, we never heard of it, and we knew Fritz from his earliest boyhood up to the time of his death. Truly a good man and citizen has passed from among us!
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his bereaved ones in the heavy loss they have sustained.
