Wilhemie Troschke was born October 6, 1839 in Lebano, Germany, and died at her home six miles northwest of Champaign March 23, 1911.   She was received into the Lutheran communion when fourteen years of age.   She was married to John Fieldbinder when twenty-one years old and came to this country in 1881.   Her husband died March 22, 1891.   A child, nine years old, died in 1884, and Carl died about eight years ago.   Mrs. Fieldbinder leaves three daughters and two sons:   Gottlieb Fieldbinder, with whom she made her home; Mrs. Augusta Leopard, Mrs. Mary Miner, Gustav Fieldbinder and Mrs. Martha Rayburn, all of this vicinity.   All were present through her sickness and at her death.   She also leaves twenty-one grandchildren.   The funeral services were held at the house Saturday morning and then a twenty-four mile drive to Lynn Grove cemetery southeast of Philo, near which the family had lived for several years.   A grateful surprise awaited those who made the long drive.   Old neighbors and friends near Lynn Grove had prepared a bounteous dinner and brought it to the church, where all were invited to partake at the close of the burial service, nor had they forgotten to bring food for the horses.   The thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated by everyone and the bereaved family hereby expresses its thanks to these friends and also to those near their present home who were so kind during the days of sickness and sorrow.
