She was baptized, confirmed February 11, 1869 and received a Christian education in the Lutheran church prior to her marriage to Mr. Collins which took place in Tolleston, February 8, 1882. After a short residence in Hartsdale, the deceased, her husband and family moved to Crown Point where remaining ones have resided ever since.
     Widowed for the past 25 years, the responsibility of rearing her family of three sons and four daughters was of great moment, and that she accomplished her purpose is attested by the splendid progeny left to perpetuate her name and the heritage of her admirable characteristics. A fourth son, Richard, died in 1905.
     Surviving sons are Charles, Harry and John all of this city. The daughters are Mrs. Arthur Reiser of LaPorte and Mrs William Zurbriggen, Mrs. Charles Westphal and Mrs. Joseph Lauerman also of this city. Three sisters also survive, Mrs. Louise Lang of Hammond; Mrs. Dora Bremer of Iowa and Mrs. Minnie Shell of Wisconsin.
     Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock in the Trinity Lutheran church, Rev. August Biester officiating. Burial was in Maplewood cemetery.

Memo*1885 In 1885, Christoph and Dorothea came to Ocheyedan with a box car full of farming equipment, a team of horses and household goods. Friends they knew in Illinois, were farming nearby, met them at Ocheyedan when they got off the train. There was only a path with prairie grass higher than their heads. They remembered what Dorothea's father had said to them. "The wild beast will eat you in Iowa". They almost believed it was true.

They stayed with friends until they cleaned out an old granary and lived in it until they built a small house. It consisted of a kitchen and dining room combined, a small bedroom and pantry. The upstairs was a large bedroom and a small one and a large closet. Heated by a kitchen range and a small heater upstairs. Sometimes four slept in one bed to keep warm.
