Mrs. Charles Hauss

The saddest July that falls to our lot to perform is to record the death of one of our loved ones, and all that is within our power to do, when the grim reaper has invaded the circle of those that are dear and near to us, is to strew followers upon the graves of the departed and to cherish their memory, as the holiest legacy they have left us.  As we advance in years, we are brought within clearer view of the end and become more reconciled to its dread approach, but when she that is in the full bloom of youth with life's brightest hopes and anticipating before her is ruthlessly torn from our midst, the wisdom of a divine providence indeed appears to us inscrutable, and the wound in our hearts, one that can seldom if ever be entirely healed.
Such a case is the one that has befallen the family of our esteemed fellow citizen Mr. Charles Hauss, in the death of the beautiful young wife of Mr. Charles Hauss, Jr., which occurred last Saturday night, and which has cast a gloom over a large circle of friends and acquantices of the family.
Mrs. Hauss was the beloved daughter of Captain Henry Sackmann, and was married to her sorrowing husband only one year ago.  Surrounded by everything that loving hands could do for her, her bright and beautiful presence gave promise of a life filled with happiness.  But it was ordained otherwise, for in the joyful anticipation of maternal bliss, she was called to give up her life in giving life to the little innocent being that survives her and who will never be blessed by the loving smile and the tender care that her departed mother would have had for her.
Just one year ago the departed was led to the altar by Mr. Charles Hauss, Jr., one of our prominent merchants and son of Alderman Charles Hauss, and life never had brighter prospects for mortal than that of the newly wedded pair, Mr. and Mrs. Hauss, Jr., took up their residence on Ohio avenue and 10th street, and a happier home than theirs was not within the land, until last Saturday when the grim reaper claimed as his own the beloved wife, the idolized daughter and the loving mother of but a few days.
The funeral took place from the late family residence last Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and the large gathering of mourning friends and relatives that assembled there gave evidence of the love and esteem in which the departed was held by all that knew her.  The floral offerings were many and beautiful, and gave voice to the sympathy felt by all that knew her.  The floral offerings were many and beautiful, and gave voice to the sympathy felt by the large circle of the friends of the family in this their hour of bereavement.
The remains were borne to their last resting place by Messrs. Ed. Newkirk, T. L. Fekete, Stephen D. Sexon, Frank Gutwald, C. Roeb, Jr., and Andrew Zittel as pall bearers, and were followed by a numerous gathering of sorrowing friends.  To the heavily stricken husband and the mourning family of the departed, we express the assurance of our most heartfelt sympathy in this their hour of sad bereavement.
