Mrs. Louise Borde died September 7, 1919, at the home of her son,
Robert Wellenbrock near Glenwood.
Louise Harsh was born in Germany January 1, 1848. At the age of 16 years she was married to Anton Wellenbrock. Two years after they came to America, where they resided in various states for a time. About 40 years ago they came to Klickitat county, settling near Glenwood, where they took up a homestead and battled the struggles incident to those pioneer days, building up a home. to this union were born 17 children. Mr. Wellenbrock died in 1897. In 1900 Mrs. Wellenbrock was married to Wenzel Borde, who died a few months previous to her own death. The near relatives left to mourn her departure are seven children: Harry Wellenbrock, robert Wellenbrock and George Wellenbrock of Glenwood, Washington; Bertha Fraiser of Wapato, Wash.; Louise Granville of Biggs, Calif.; Nina Booher of Donald, Wash.; Anna Gilmore of Glenwood, Wash.; and 19 grandchildren. She was born and raised in the Catholic church, in which she believed herself saved.
Her motto was, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." It grieved her very much to learn of anyone doing wrong. She was loved and respected by all who knew her. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Beaumont at the residence of her son, Robert, on September 10, 1919, and the body was laid to rest in the Grange cemetery by the Glenwood Grange, of which she was a member.
She has come to the end of a perfect day,
And can look back o'er the hours that are gone;
She can feel in her breast a conscience clear,
She's been honest to everyone.
She can stand before the Judge at the Great White Throne,
Her name called out and never fear;
She has done her best, she can stand the test,
For her conscience was perfectly clear,
She was honored and loved by everyone,
And believed in living right in the past,
That He will give you strength,
He will guide you safe,
Into the Haven of Rest at last.
CARD OF THANKS
