Sunday's Obituary - Minnie Schwemm Schnetlage

Joseph Julia Emme Schwemm

William Schnetlage: Feb 17 1897 - Chicago, IL

Excerpts from the Obituary - Barrington Courier Review:

Funeral Services for Mrs. Minnie Schnetlage, 84, of 127 North Avenue, wife of William M. Schnetlage, retired painter and decorator, are scheduled for 2:00 pm this Thursday at the Stirlen Funeral Home, 149 West Main Street.

The last rites will be conducted by the Rev. Grant V. Graver, pastor of Salem Evangelical United Brethern Church. Burial was in Evergreen Cemetery.

Mrs. Schnetlage died early Tuesday at Sherman Hospital at Elgin where she had been confined since Nov.21 after suffering a stroke at her home. Her condition was critical from the time she was stricken.

A lifelong resident of Barrington, the former Minnie Schwemm was born August 2, 1873 in Barrington, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Schwemm.

She was married to Mr. Schnetlage in Chicago, February 17, 1897, and they took occupancy shortly after their marriage of their newly built North Avenue home, where they had resided ever since.

She was a member of the Salem Church and attended service regularly until frail health limited her activities. She belonged to the church's Philathea class and the Woman's Society of World Service.

Minnie kept in contact with the extended Schwemm family during her life. Here are some snippets from the "Local News" column in the Barrington Review over the years.
