|Catherine Arduser Ambuhl
Mrs. Andrew Ambuhl
November 6, 1831–March 13 1896
|Death of Mrs. Andrew Ambuhl occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Ed. Kiburz, in this city, last Friday, March 13th. Mrs. Ambuhl's home was on Bowen's Prairie, and two weeks ago she came to Monticello, to visit with her daughter. She was taken sick with bronchial pneumonia and for some days before her death but slight hopes were entertained for her recovery. Thus the news of her death to some extent did not come entirely unexpected. The deceased was 65 years of age at the time of her death. Her maiden name was Catherine Arduser and she was born at Davos Platz, Switzerland, in 1831. In 1853 she was married to Mr. Andrew Ambuhl, the husband who survives her. With her husband she came to America and direct to Bowen's Prairie, in 1872, and for twenty four years Mr. and Mrs. Ambuhl have made their home at that place. Mrs. Ambuhl was the mother of eight children, two of whom preceded her in death. The six surviving children are full grown and all married but one. These together with the aged husband mourn the loss of a mother and wife, whose Christian spirits did so much in influencing the lives of those about her. The funeral was held at the German Reformed church, of which the deceased was a devoted member, last Monday afternoon, and was largely attended by the friends of the family. Rev. Gruenstein preached the funeral sermon, after which the remains were taken to Bowen's Prairie for interment.
