OBITUARY
William Mattausch

Another pioneer has answered the call to migrate to a new unknown land, leaving behind him the fruits of a long and useful life.
Wilhelm Mattausch was born in Algersdort, Austria, January 14, 1844, and came to this country with his parents in 1856. They resided near La Crosse for two years, then came to Buffalo County.
His marriage to Gertrude Tillman took place April 23, 1878, and they thereafter made their home in the town of Lincoln.
Could the complete story be told of Mr. Mattausch's personal activities and his relation toward the community in which he lived it would reveal a tale of patience, hardship, toil, and self denial, mingled with a saving appreciation for such simple social advantages as were available in the rural district, and in which he often took a leading part.
It was as a lad only 12 years old the he came across the broad Atlantic with his parents , the voyage being made in a sailing vessel and they were seven weeks on the water. The family located first at Tmadison, from which place they journeyed to La Crosse by ox team.
In the year 1874 Mr. Mattausch homesteaded some land in the town of Lincoln near Praag, which he cleared and made his home, and of which he retained possession until his death last week. In those early days wild game was abundant, and Mr. Mattausch was fond of the chase. It is told that he was reputed to be more than ordinarily successful as a hunter, and that besides other game he brought home in all about a hundred deer and two bears.
As the country around became more settled and developed, he came to be one of the more active and best known residents. For eight years he held the office of director of the district school board, and for twenty years he served as school treasurer. He was also elected a member of the town board of supervisors and held that position three years.
He became well known in quite a large section of the country in the days when threshing rigs were few, the territory of each rig was large and the season long. He and his brother Stephan owned a large outfit for many years and threshed in an area that took in much of the towns of Lincoln, Waumandee, and Gilmanton, and even went into the town of Dover and near Nelson.
Coming from a family with a natural inclination for music, he learned to play the bass violin very well, and with his sons Henry and Joseph formed an orchestra that provided merry entertainment at many a country dance and entertainment. He also enjoyed singing and belonged to a local singing society.
Mr. Mattausch was a well informed man, as was fond of good reading, and was an active member of a German reading circle, called the "Lincoln Leseverein Frohsin"
When the Praag Cheese Co, was organized many years ago he was one of the principal promoters of the enterprise and acted as treasurer for many years.
Always active and conscientious in his duties while he was able, he was patient and uncomplaining when physical disability became his lot in his declining years.
About six years ago he became blind, and after an illness of several days he passed away at his home on Tuesday, January 5. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. A.C. Perterhansel of the Reformed Church and the remains were laid to rest in the Lincoln Cemetery Friday with songs by the church choir.
Six nephews of the deceased acted as pallbearers, namely: Joe Plett, George Plett, Adolf Plett, Alvin Plett, Joe Mattausch Jr., and Frank Dowiasch.
Deceased leaves surviving his sorrowing wife and the following five children: Henry, Joseph, Nic, and Mrs Ed Miller, all of the town of Lincoln, and Mrs. Frank Schmidt of the town of Alma. One daughter Julia, died in infancy. He also leaves two brothers and two sisters: Reinhold, Mrs. Mary Dowiasch, and Emelia of the town of Lincoln, and Gustav of Spokane, Wash. , also three grandchildren, Lester and Delores Mattausch and Oliver Miller.



William married Gertrude Tillman, daughter of Henry Tillman and Lena, on 23 Apr 1878 in Lincoln, Buffalo County, Wisconsin. Gertrude was born in 1859 in Austria, died in 1958 at age 99, and was buried in Cream, Buffalo County, Wisconsin.

Theresa age 6 imigrated abt 1854



Theresa married George Plett Sr., son of Hans George Plett and Christine Margaret, in 1877. George was born on 27 Feb 1851 in Germany, died on 11 Jun 1936 at age 85, and was buried in Gilmanton, Buffalo County, Wisconsin.

General Notes: George Plett, a well-known and highly respected citizen of Mondovi, Buffalo County, who ha s done good work in developing farms in both Buffalo and Pepin Counties, was born in Germany , Feb. 27, 1850, son of Hans George and Margaret Plett. At the age of 19 years he came to Ame rica, his brother John, aged 19, coming two years later. His emigration was caused by a lette r he had received from an old school friend who had come to this country previously and wh o wrote that he was getting $19 a month for his labor. Landing in New York after a voyage o f 14 days, he and his brother made their way directly to Buffalo County, and on arriving her e went to Mondovi township, where they worked that summer for a Mr. Lauerbach. During the ens uing winter they did chores on the farm for their board. The winter after that George Plett f ound employment in the lumber camps and was thus occupied for several years. In the meanwhil e he had been joined by his parents, who came to this country four years after him. In 1877 G eorge Plett became a land owner buying a tract of 160 acres in section 32, Gilmanton township , of which 100 acres had been broken. There was also a small frame house and shed barns on th e place. Here his mother kept house for him for a time. In 1877 Mr. Plett was married to Mari e Theresa Mattausch, of the Little Waumandee, and they began domestic life on the Gilmanton f arm, the size of which he subsequently increased by the purchase of an additional tract of 8 0 acres adjoining. He also improved the place by the erection of a two-story frame house, co nsisting of upright and wing, a frame barn, granary, corncrib and tool sheds, finally develop ing the farm into one of the best in the county. Residing on it until 1903, he then purchase d 320 acres in Albany township, Pepin County, five miles north of Mondovi, of which about 10 0 acres were broken, and moved to it, renting the Gilmanton farm to his sons. There he reside d until 1908, when he sold the Pepin County farm to his son Joseph and returned to the Gilman ton farm, which he operated for two years with his sons George R. and Adolph. Wanting more la nd, he went to the state of Washington, but finding nothing there to suit him, returned to B uffalo County. In 1908 Mr. Plett sold the Gilmanton township farm to his sons, George R and A dolph, and in 1910 bought 27 acres in Mondovi City within the city limits, to which he move d and where he is now living, the place having a comfortable frame house as well as a barn . Though well to do, Mr. Plett is not content to live in idleness, but works a part of his la nd, renting the rest. His Political principles are those of the Republican party, but he ha s never been active in politics. He and his wife, who is still living, are the parents of nin e children, five sons and four daughters, who are comfortably settled around them in Buffal o and Pepin Counties. They are as follows: Anna, the widow of Albert Auar; Adolph, a residen t of Buffalo County; Joseph, a resident of Pepin County; Selma, now Mrs. Frank Auar, of Cochr ane; George R., living on the old farm; Helen, who keeps house for her brother Edgar; Clara , now Mrs Henry Johnson, of Mondovi; Edgar, who is farming in Pepin County, and Alvin, who i s now in the United States service.

MATTAUSCH-HETRICK After rumors and predictions had on a previous occasion led to the belief that one of our popular young bachelors had formed a life partnership with an estimable young lady who was suspected of being a willing party to the event, the young couple bided their own time and slipped away to tie the nuptial knot, and without many being the wiser for a few days, they quietly established themselves in their new home at Alma, surprising their many friends when the news gradually became known in this vicinity . The marriage of Mr. William F. Mattausch and Miss Florence Hetrick took place at Wabasha , Minn., on Saturday, March 1, at ten O"clock a.m. Justice J.H. Smith performing the ceremony which united them as man and wife. The bride was tastily attired in blue taffeta, trimmed with georgette crepe and buttons. Miss Esther Hetrick, a sister of the bride, served as brides maid and also wore taffeta and georgette. Mr. Elmer Michaels, nephew of the groom, acted as best man, and like the groom wore a suit of blue serge. Returning from Wabasha the same day the wedding party enjoyed a pleasant luncheon at the former home of the bride in Nelson. The newly-wedded couple have taken up their residence in the house recently purchased from T.H . Kruse at the northern end of the city, and here they will find themselves welcome among neighbors to whom neither are strangers. The bride for the past year has been employed at the Burlington hotel as assistant during which time she has won the good will of both her employers and patrons for her cheerfulness and industry in her duties and previously she held a similar position at the hotel at Nelson. Most of her life has been spent at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Hetrick, at Nelson, where her training in the art of housekeeping fitted her well for the tasks now awaiting her. The groom is fortunate in winning as his helpmate one so well endowed with womanly virtues, but that he deserves the best is the unanimous opinion of all his friends for many miles around, he having gained the good will of all his personal and business associates during recent years, After spending his earlier years assisting his parents, Mr.and Mrs. Joseph Mattausch in the management of their farm in the town of Alma, he for several years was a member of the livery firm of Miller & Mattausch, and for the past year he has taken charge of the Standard Oil agency here. With his genial and kindly disposition and his honest and accommodating conduct toward patrons, he has won the esteem of all with whom he has come into contact and with every one's good will his future is likely to be a prosperous one. That every happiness and blessing will be theirs as they travel along life's way together is the wish of the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Mattausch as they unite in extending congratulations.

INFLUENZA BRINGS DEATH TO THOENY FAMILY

One of the saddest family tragedies in the history of Buffalo county was the result of the terrible epidemic of influenza which has been raging in the northern end of the county for the past few weeks. Although not in direct contact, the homes of C.W. Thoeny of the town of Gilmanton and of Romeo Thoeny of the town of Lincoln were almost simultaneously stricken with the dreaded disease, both husband and wife of the former and the husband of the latter succumbing to the effects of pneumonia. Besides losing these parents, the children of both families suffered from the affliction, but all are fortunately on the road to recovery C.W. Thoeny and Romeo Thoeny were both sons of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Thoeny, formerly of Waumandee and Lincoln, but now residing at Mondovi. They leave surviving them, besides their families and parents, the following sisters: Mrs. Otto Gaebele of the town of Lincoln, Mrs Clayton Butler of Mondovi, Mrs. Raymond Schultz of the town of Alma, and Miss Wilma Thoeny of Mondovi. The tragic misfortune which has befallen the Thoeny families has cast a shadow of sadness and mourning in their community, and in fact throughout the county, as they had a wide acquaintance in this section and were highly esteemed by all. The surviving relatives have the heartfelt sympathy of everyone in their heavy sorrow.(Buffalo County Journal, pg 1, Thursday 3 Apri l 1919)

MRS. C.W. THOENY A short wifehood and motherhood was allotted to Mrs. C.W. Thoeny, but during those few years she proved the full devotion and sacrifice of which she was capable as a loyal and true woman. Eva Mattausch was born at Fountain City on September 28, 1889, and at four years of age she removed with her parents, Mr. and Mrs . Joseph Mattausch, to their farm in the town of Alma, near the Gilmanton town line. Since her marriage she has resided with her husband on their farm. Three children were born to her , Alma, Lillian, and Lorraine, who barely escaped suffering the fate of their parents when in fluenza invaded their home. After an illness of two weeks Mrs. Thoeny gave birth to another daughter, which safely survived the crisis, although the mother gave up her life shortly after , passing away on Wednesday afternoon, March 26, shortly after her husband succumbed to the same disease. Deceased leaves surviving her the four orphan children mentioned above, also her parents, Mr.and Mrs. Joseph Mattausch of the town of Alma her sister, Mrs. John Voss of Gilmanton, and her brothers, Edward now in Texas, Joseph of the town of Alma, and William F. Mattausch of the city of Alma.(Buffalo County Journal Wisconsin, pg1, 3 April 1919)

General Notes: Christ William Thoeny, a well known and respected citizen of Gilmanton township, Buffalo County, where he is prosperously engaged in agricultural pursuits, his farm lying in section 2 4, was born in Waumandee township, this county, December 7, 1888. His parents were Jacob and Lena (Schultz) Thoeny, his father being a blacksmith, which occupation he followed for thirty-eight years. Both parents are still living, being residents of Mondovi village. Of their nine children three are now deceased, survivors being Chist W., Romie, Mabel, Eva, Linda and Wilma. Christ William Thoeny acquired the elements of an English education in the district school, after which for twelve years he worked for others, both as blacksmith and farmer. When 24 years old he bought a farm of 172 acres in section 36, Gilmanton township, which he operated until the fall of 1917, having 135 acres cleared and the balance in woodland. He then sold the place and bought his present farm of seventy-two acres in section 25, Gilmanton township, where he is engaged in mixed farming, mostly dairying and the raising of swine and horses for the market. He has an adequate set of buildings and his operations are yielding good financial results.

CHRIST W. THOENY

Christ W. Thoeny was born in the town of Waumandee on March 17, 1888, and later resided with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Thoeny on their farm in the town of Lincoln. His marriag e to Miss Eva Mattausch took place on March 30, 1912. After residing on their farm in Little Waumandee Valley in the town of Lincoln, he removed with his family about a year ago to the farm which he purchased in the town of Gilmanton. During recent years he won a deserved reputation as an enterprising farmer, a good citizen and a desirable neighbor. To his family he was always a kind and devoted husband and father.

Former Alma Area Man Notes 100th Birthday

Joseph "Sepp" Mattausch celebrated his 100 birthday Monday, with a smile on his face and lots of friends and relatives at his side. Apparently "Sepp", as he's affectionately known , has had that smile for a number of years, for it appeared quite natural there--and apparently the friends and relatives are many, for the lines of people which came to see this man reach this rare milestone seemed endless. Sepp is now a resident of the Wabasha Nursing Home and with the help of the Activities Director Becky Borgwardt and a number of others at the Nursing Home, along with the relatives, Sepp had a grand birthday party. Wabasha Mayor John Meisch was on hand to pay tribute to this former guitar picker-horn player (both at once, no less) . Meisch offered a Proclamation from the city, commemorating this historic occasion. Mattausch--who was never married and at least to some, including Ms. Borgwardt, that may be the reason he has lived so long--grew up on a farm near Alma, Wisconsin. His family came from Czechoslovakia and settled near Praag, a tiny community about 13 miles from Alma. Mattausch' s nephew, Orville, who still farms in the Praag area, was on hand for the ceremonies, which were attended by many of the Nursing Home residents as well as the many friends and relatives, and related much about his uncle's life. He was most noted for his ability to play the baritone horn while strumming a guitar. The contraption that he used to accomplish this fete, was on hand at the Nursing Home Monday. It features three foot pedals, each attached to a string which depressed the valves on the horn. In this way, he could free his hands for playing the guitar. He apparently loved to play for wedding dances, his nephew recalled . He seldom plays the guitar anymore, Borgwardt noted, but he does some chords on the piano now and then. He got his nickname, according to Miller, from a Bohemian pronunciation of Joseph. They used to say "Joe-sepp" and thus, the nickname Sepp. The party was a happy one. Folks came steadily to greet Sepp and others looked at many pictures of the homestead , the family gatherings, and so forth. One lady asked him if he could remember her. "Why by golly, ya 'oughta" she chuckled, "I used to come over and ask ya to dance all the time at them ballroom dances we went to!" referring to an era of fun that probably has been forgotten by many. And apparently, he must have been quite the popular guy, also. (source: The Cochrane- Fountain City Recorder, Thursday April 7, 1983)

JOSEPH MATTAUSCH

March 28, 1983 was a special day at the Wabasha Nursing Home as it marked the 100th birthday of Joseph Mattausch. He was born in Praag, Wisconsin, Joseph who was nicknamed "Sepp" by family and friends was raised on a farm with is two brothers and three sisters. Sepp and his sister founded the first general store named Miller-Mattausch General Store at Praag. As Sepp preferred to work outside he was given the job of picking up supplies and delivering goods, but with a horse drawn cart and after the turn of the century, a motorized truck. His hobby was playing in a band. His instrument was the guitar but in time he also played the baritone for which he built a frame so he could play it with his feet while strumming the guitar. Sepp retired at the Wabasha Nursing Home March 11, 1980, where he continues to enjoy life to the fullest. (source: Wabasha Nursing Home News, March 30, 1983)

Murdered
Waverly Couple Found Killed

Shotgun blasts early Thursday killed two southern Spokane County residents who had baked pies for the elderly and delivered bread to the needy
Two young men who accepted food, shelter and friendship from Allen and Trudy Mattausch are in jail, suspected of gunning down the well-known couple in their Waverly farmhouse.
Residents from Rockford to Tekoa, Wash., shook their heads in disbelief as news of the slayings spread across the Palouse. They wondered aloud about a world in which caring people such as the Mattauschs could meet such a violent end.
"Why someone would murder them, I don't know," said neighbor Herman Holling, 91. "They were so damn good-hearted."
Cheyenne T. Brown, 20, and his friend, 19-year-old K.C. Therriault, were booked into the county jail on suspicion of first-degree murder. They are scheduled to make their first appear ance in District Court today
Friends and relatives said the victims had allowed Brown, a convicted felon, to live in a mobile home on their 6-acre farm for the past several months. He did odd jobs for room and board, according to the victims' son, Richard Mattausch. The couple even forgave Brown after he stole their pickup truck last October, their son said.
Brown served 60 days in jail and was ordered to pay Allen Mattausch $640 in restitution for the theft, according to court records. But Richard Mattausch said his parents decided to "let bygones be bygones." They invited Brown back to the farm at 36815 S. Dunn Road to work off the debt. "Dad said, 'You come down, and we'll make this right,' " Richard Mattausch said . "He wasn't exactly a man who went to church every Sunday, but he lived it." Sheriffs deputies said Therriault recently moved in with Brown.
The slain couple, married 42 years, were well-known for their generosity in the farm towns of southern Spokane County.
"If there is any role model you would wish for in our society, they would be it, " Richard Mattausch said. "They didn't have a dime, but they always had room for an extra plate at the table."
Allen Mattausch, 66, was an active member of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars chapter and was willing to volunteer to help anyone who needed it, friends said. Latah Mayor Chuck Crockett, who knew the man for nearly 50 years, said Mattausch would buy day-old bread from local bakeries and deliver it to low-income residents throughout the Palouse. "If someone needed help, he was right there, " said Crockett, choking back tears.
This past September, the retired postal worker, farmer and Army Veteran was named an All-American Post Commander of the VFW.
Trudy Mattausch, 63, worked as a cook at the Good Samaritan nursing home in Fairfield and used to take home-baked cookies and pies in for the staff and residents. "She was a wonderful lady with a great sense of humor," said Virginia Langston, Good Samaritan administrator. " We'll miss them both desperately."
Sheriff John Goldman called the slayings a "very heinous crime" that "terrified this smal l community."
The shootings apparently occurred sometime before dawn in a first-floor bedroom of the Mattausch home, Goldman said. Both victims were shot in the head. The Sheriff would not say whether they were killed in their sleep. One of the couple's four sons discovered their bodies about 3:30 a.m., when he arrived at the house to pick up something, Goldman said. The son, who wasn't identified, told deputies he saw his parents' pickup truck heading north on U.S. Hig hway 195 as he was driving south from Spokane.
Later that day, Officer Ray Harding was patrolling near Mission Park in Spokane when he noticed two men in a two-tone Ford pickup acting suspiciously, Goldman said. Harding was following the truck when an all-points bulletin came over the radio alerting authorities to be on the lookout for the stolen truck. The officer stopped the truck and took Brown and Therriault into custody. Police and sheriffs deputies reportedly found two guns in the pickup.
Brown has a history of felony convictions dating back to 1995. He served time for forgery and car theft, records show. In November, a state corrections officer urged a judge to keep the repeat offender behind bars for as long as possible. Brown is continuing to go about his non-compliant anti-social behavior, Larry Young wrote in a memorandum. Information about Therriault was sketchy Thursday. He has no felony convictions in Spokane County, and deputies are unsure of his connection to Brown. "We've heard reports that they're both from Montana, so maybe they know each other from there," said sheriff's spokesman Dave Reagan.
Many people who knew the Mattauschs said they weren't suprise Brown was involved in their deaths. "He just wasn't the type of person I would have felt comfortable with," said Mayor Crockett, who met Brown last November. "Apparently he was someone who led Alllen to believe he was in need. He took him under his wing and trusted him."
A group gathered at the Waverly tavern for coffee Thursday morning speculated that was the couple's undoing. "Kindness killed them," said one woman, shaking her head. "Kindness killed them." (Source: The Spokesman-Review, Spokane, Washington, Friday, January 24, 1997)

183. Otto Joseph Triesch was born on 20 Sep 1922 in Yakima, Yakima County, Washington, died on 28 Nov 2010 in Kennewick, Benton County, Washington at age 88, and was buried on 2 Dec 2010 in Sunset Memorial Gardens, Richland, Benton County, Washington. The cause of his death was Cancer.

General Notes: The following was written by Otto's sister at his 85th birthday Party.

A little boy born in Yakima WA. to Joseph and Winnifred Triesch.was named Otto Joseph, born Sep 20th 1922 weighing in at 9 pounds. He had lots of dark hair becoming thick and curly in years to come. Then OOPS! He didn't need a comb.
The family lived on a farm in Benton City Wa for most of Otto's toddler years. About 1928 the family of three moved to Tacoma where Otto attended Holy Rosary School.
After Christmas one year he gathered all of the discarded Christmas trees and delivered them one by one back to the neighbors.
Always looking for something to do he and a friend once delivered his mom and dads love letters to the neighbors mail boxes.
Otto and his parents moved back to Benton City in the early 1930s where they raised asparagus, black angus cattle, grapes, alfalfa, chickens, pigs and fruit on their 60 acre farm. As a young adult, Otto worked beside his parents at various tasks. However he was never fond of the farm work.
When Otto was 17, his baby sister was born in Prosser on the hottest day ever recorded there on July 27, 1939 (114) degree. He always protected and watched over her however she was a little rascal to him. She would jump off of the barn onto his back when he was carrying buckets of milk to the house. Otto has no other brothers or sisters.
He has always been a kind and gentle man and has had many good friends throughout his long life.
He has never been married, has never inhaled cigarette smoke nor has he cussed or drank. He has survived numerous surgeries determined to keep going with a positive attitude (No wonder he lives to age 85)-just like the energizer bunny. He just keeps going and going.
The family farm was sold in 1952 making Otto very happy to move to town where he lived near his & grandmother and parents for many years. About 1959 he inherited a small house from his grandmother. Otto and his parents were once again living together. Otto's sister was married, living in Kennewick with her family. He would visit and enjoy being with his nieces and nephews. They call him "UNKIE."Scott told his mother he was about age 10 before he knew Otto had another name besides UNKIE. Unkie now has 8 great nieces and nephews and 2 great great nieces.
Otto's dad passed away June 1976, leaving Otto and his mother still living in Benton City.
When the Washington Street Dessert Villa Apt. was being built, Otto and his mother applied to move into one of the Apartments when completed. In the meantime they sold their home and moved in with Otto's sister and family waiting for the completion of the building. The steel strike delayed construction so the two families lived together for 18 months. Otto had a dog named Chris which he left with his sister to care for.
The day finally arrived and Otto and Winnifred Triesch moved into Apt 328-2 bedroom on So. Washington St. where they made many friends and both joined the Senior Citizens center becoming very involved in most activities. bingo, square dancing, pool, ceramics, dominoes, dards, exercise classes. Otto received a certificate for 28 years of volunteer service at the Senior Center. He belonged to the Kettle Scrappers, was in many parades. He played Santa Clause for many years. He always had many unique costumes for Halloween and enjoyed most of the activities. Helped deliver meals on wheels and served beverages and washed dishes at the Senior center noon meals. He loves to fish and travel. He had a pet Finch and asked his sister to care for it while he was visiting friends. He hasn't asked her to care for or any more of his things. He has always grown plants and flowers and planted a garden.
Otto's mother died in 1984, he moved into apt # 227- A (1) bedroom on South Washington. St. where he resided until most recently when he fell and broke his ankle. His doctor advised him to discontinue living alone. This decision was difficult, however Otto knew this was the best thing to do and agreed to leave Dessert Villa where he has lived for 29 years. He moved to the adult family home belonging to Denise and John Larson on 26th and Garfield in Kennewick during July 2007.
Today, many of Otto's friends, neighbors, relatives and special care providers are here to help him celebrate his 85th birthday.
We want to thank all of these special persons in Otto's life for taking him to decorate family graves, to Church and to many of the various activities he has been involved in over the many years. Bringing him goodies, looking after him when he was recuperating from surgeries, and unlocking his door when he was locked out. Taking him to various appointments. Taking him to Mariners games.( As you all probably know he is a big fan). Thanks for taking him to the fair and to the ocean as well as community events and dinners at your home.
Thank you for all of the phone calls, well wishes, visits and cards when he was in the hospital and Life care.
Thanks to all of you for the goodies here at the Potluck and thanks to all involved in helping us honor Otto on his special day
Happy Birthday Otto and many more!
In conclusion-thank you to the Monday night Bible study group for letting us use this room for this special party.

When Otto was 17, his baby sister was born in Prosser on the hottest day ever recorded there on July 27, 1939 (114) degree. He always protected and watched over her however she was a little rascal to him. She would jump off of the barn onto his back when he was carrying buckets of milk to the house. Otto has no other brothers or sisters.
He has always been a kind and gentle man and has had many good friends throughout his long life.
He has never been married, has never inhaled cigarette smoke nor has he cussed or drank. He has survived numerous surgeries determined to keep going with a positive attitude (No wonder he lives to age 85)-just like the energizer bunny. He just keeps going and going.
The family farm was sold in 1952 making Otto very happy to move to town where he lived near his & grandmother and parents for many years. About 1959 he inherited a small house from his grandmother. Otto and his parents were once again living together. Otto's sister was married, living in Kennewick with her family. He would visit and enjoy being with his nieces and nephews. They call him "UNKIE."Scott told his mother he was about age 10 before he knew Otto had another name besides UNKIE. Unkie now has 8 great nieces and nephews and 2 great great nieces.
Otto's dad passed away June 1976, leaving Otto and his mother still living in Benton City.
When the Washington Street Dessert Villa Apt. was being built, Otto and his mother applied to move into one of the Apartments when completed. In the meantime they sold their home and moved in with Otto's sister and family waiting for the completion of the building. The steel strike delayed construction so the two families lived together for 18 months. Otto had a dog named Chris which he left with his sister to care for.
The day finally arrived and Otto and Winnifred Triesch moved into Apt 328-2 bedroom on So. Washington St. where they made many friends and both joined the Senior Citizens center becoming very involved in most activities. bingo, square dancing, pool, ceramics, dominoes, dards, exercise classes. Otto received a certificate for 28 years of volunteer service at the Senior Center. He belonged to the Kettle Scrappers, was in many parades. He played Santa Clause for many years. He always had many unique costumes for Halloween and enjoyed most of the activities. Helped deliver meals on wheels and served beverages and washed dishes at the Senior center noon meals. He loves to fish and travel. He had a pet Finch and asked his sister to care for it while he was visiting friends. He hasn't asked her to care for or any more of his things. He has always grown plants and flowers and planted a garden.
Otto's mother died in 1984, he moved into apt # 227- A (1) bedroom on South Washington. St. where he resided until most recently when he fell and broke his ankle. His doctor advised him to discontinue living alone. This decision was difficult, however Otto knew this was the best thing to do and agreed to leave Dessert Villa where he has lived for 29 years. He moved to the adult family home belonging to Denise and John Larson on 26th and Garfield in Kennewick during July 2007.
Today, many of Otto's friends, neighbors, relatives and special care providers are here to help him celebrate his 85th birthday.
We want to thank all of these special persons in Otto's life for taking him to decorate family graves, to Church and to many of the various activities he has been involved in over the many years. Bringing him goodies, looking after him when he was recuperating from surgeries, and unlocking his door when he was locked out. Taking him to various appointments. Taking him to Mariners games.( As you all probably know he is a big fan). Thanks for taking him to the fair and to the ocean as well as community events and dinners at your home.
Thank you for all of the phone calls, well wishes, visits and cards when he was in the hospital and Life care.
Thanks to all of you for the goodies here at the Potluck and thanks to all involved in helping us honor Otto on his special day
Happy Birthday Otto and many more!
In conclusion-thank you to the Monday night Bible study group for letting us use this room for this special party.
