Mrs. Wm. Ihrig is Dead

Yesterday forenoon at the family home in this village occurred the death of Mrs. Wm. Ihrig after a lingering illness.  Deceased was born in Darmstadt, Germany, September 17, 1848, and her maiden name was Helena Miller. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Hahn Miller.  She was married in her native town to Wm. Ihrig in 1871 and ten years later came to America, locating in Akron, Ohio, where they resided seven years, after which they removed to Milwaukee. The family came to Eagle in 1893 and purchased the home now occupied by Rev. R. Rami. A few years ago they sold this home and purchased another on Diamond Hill, which they have since occupied.

Mr. Ihrig is a shoemaker by trade and has followed his occupation from boyhood. To their happy union a large family of children was born, all of whom are active, energetic and industrious.  Miss Mary and Mrs. Fred Mell are in Chicago, Henry is in the shoe business with his father, William resides in Milwaukee, Charles is a fireman on the Green Bay division, and little Ernest, who is also at home, with the husband and four grandchildren, Elanora Seitz, Willie and Helen Ihrig and Vema May Ihrig  survive her. The family are members of the Lutheran church and the funeral will be held from the residence on Saturday afternoon. Interment will be in Oak Ridge cemetery.  We all extend our sympathy to the bereaved family in the loss sustained by the death of a loving wife, and a kind mother, who devoted her whole life time to their welfare.

Death of Walter Irving Prominent Waukesha Business Man Expires Suddenly

Waukesha, Wis. Aug. 1 - News was received here this evening of the sudden death, presumably of heart disease, of Walter Irving, senior member of the mercantile firm of Robinson & Irving of this city. Mr. Irving arrived in town last night from La Crosse, where he had been in charge of a branch store for six months past. To-day he rode to Mukwonago, his former home, on a bicycle, and it is probable that the fatigue of the ride was too severe. He was 58 or 60 years of age, and leaves two sons and a daughter, besides a wife, the daughter of the late Judge Martin Field. His daughter is Mrs. P. C. Robinson, wife of Mr. Irving's business associate. The eldest son, John Irving, resides in Iowa, while the youngest son, Walter, is a student at the Hahnamann Medical college of Chicago. Mr. Irving's early life was spent at Mukwonago, and for years he was a prosperous farmer there. He had prospered in his mercantile ventures, and has long been recognized as one of the most respected and substantial business men here.
