Dorothy Madigan Biddle
[Source: unknown newspaper (possibly Columbus Journal) contributed by Ron Flink & tr. by MZ]
RIO - Dorothy Madigan Biddle, 91, of Rio, passed away Saturday, June 5, 2010, in the way she wanted: at home with her family and loved ones.
Dorothy was born the only child of Arthur and Johanna McGrath Madigan on Feb. 23, 1919, in Portage. When Dorothy was just 8 years old, her father passed away. Her mother went on to operate their family farm alone, sometimes with hired help. Dorothy attended school in the Beaver Dam School District, where she graduated in 1938. While in high school, she met Charles W. Biddle Sr., and the two were wed Sept. 27, 1941, at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Beaver Dam. Soon their union was blessed with a son, Charles Jr. Dorothy was the sort of person who got things done. She worked hard over her lifetime; first at Monarch Range in Beaver Dam and then the Glove Factory in Rio, while selling kitchen supplies part time.  Dorothy also was the sort of person who believed in giving of herself to her community and to others. She took on the remarkable task of being foster parent to a rumored 143 young children and teenagers over a 28-year career. Some of them stayed for just a day, and some remained for a lifetime and often would return to visit and to still call her "Mom."  She relished the job of organizing the Rio Elderly Nutrition Site and served as its director for many years. She filled in at the Columbus and other surrounding area sites after giving up her position at the Rio site. She was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Doylestown. When her children and grandchildren were young, she was a 4-H leader. She was a member of the Rio Community Club and a longtime member of the Otsego Women's Club. She served continuously as an officer and looked forward to the group's annual dinners and card parties, until her declining health forced her to turn the work over to others. Dorothy was a sure, strong woman who found joy in living and peace within herself. Dorothy is survived by her son, Charles A. (Jane) Biddle Jr. of Rio, and her daughter, Patricia (Edwin) Schellin of Columbus. She also is survived by five grandchildren, Jonathon Schellin of Columbus, Jeremy (Cristine) Schellin of Chicago, Ill., and Jennifer Schellin of Wausau, Adam (Levonna) Biddle of Beaver Dam, and Tamara (Leonard Everett) Biddle of Randolph; nine greatgrandchildren; beloved nieces and nephews; other relatives; and friends. She also is survived by her brother in-law, Donald (Louise) Foster, and sister-in-law, Martha Hoskins. She also is survived by her dear friend, Jeannie (Dr. Eliot) Elliott of Fedalia, Mo., and her children, the Rev. Yvonne (Steve) Marshall of Oklahoma City, Okla., Wayne (Trina) Kiefer of Stoughton and Steve (Lisa) Kiefer of Mesa, Ariz. Dorothy was preceded in death by her father in 1927, her mother in 1967, her son, George in 1953, Nicole Biddle in 1993, and her grandson, LaVern Biddle, in 2005.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Doylestown. Father Bruce Hennington will preside. Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Smith-Vangen Funeral Home in Rio, with a prayer service being held at 7 p.m.  Visitation also will be held at 10 a.m. until the time of service Thursday. Burial will be at 3 p.m. Thursday at Annunciation Parish Cemetery in the town of Trenton.
Dorothy's family would like to extend deep appreciation to Hillside Hospice Care and its warm and dedicated nursing staff that helped to make Dorothy comfortable during her final days. Dorothy's family would especially like to thank her caregiver, Cheryl Stankiewicz, for her patience, care and friendship to Dorothy over the past two years. You arrived, like an angel, to grant Dorothy's final wish to live out her days in her own home.

We regret to learn that Mr. Estermann, a highly respected and wealthy Swede, who left the vicinity of Horicon for California in April last, lost his life on the plains.

A German, by the name of Ferdinand Hertzmann, recently commited suicide near Hustisford, Dodge county, by shooting himself through the head. No reason is assigned for the rash act, unless it be found in an expression previously made by the deceased to his brother, that he had “been eaten by mosquitoes all summer, and expected to starve to death in the winter.” We have not heard the verdict of the inquest jury, but it should have been “justifiable suicide.” – Rock River Pilot.

1881 - Prof. Wm. Lehmann died in Hustisford, June 12th, in his eightieth year. He was born in Rheniah-Prussia, and educated at the universities of Bonn and Tubingen. He joined in early life the secret society of his country to promote liberal government in Germany; he was betrayed, tried, and convicted of constructive high treason in 1824, and condemned to sixteen years imprisonment in the fortress of Julich. Two years after, by the aid of his pupil, son of the commandant, he effected his escape, and came to the United States. He was a teacher awhile of languages in the high school, at Pittsfield, Mass.; and subsequently professor of ancient and modern languages in the University of Georgia at Athens, and among his pupils were Howell Cobb and Alex H. Stephens. In 1848, he settled on a farm at Hustisford. He was a superior musician, maintained his scholastic attainments, and kept well abreast with the advanced thought of the age. Taking broad views of human life, its origin and destiny, he pitied those whose narrowness of mind unfitted them to comprehend either the one or the other.

Ambrose H. Reihbandt
[Source: Beaver Dam Daily Citizen (3 Feb. 2013) submitted by Jim H.]
(May 17, 1923 - January 31, 2013)
Ambrose A. Reihbandt, age 89 of Beaver Dam, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at Golden Living Center - Continental Manor in Randolph.
Ambrose, who passed away on January 31, didn’t have a full life- he had three or four full lives. He was born in Beaver Dam on May 17, 1923 to Emil and Agnes (nee Krueger). A child of the Depression he went to work at age 12 on a local farm to help support his family. He attended St. Michael’s School and graduated from Beaver Dam High School in 1940. At 18 he made his first long journey, a cross-country train trip to California for basic training. Within a few months Sgt. Reihbandt was serving in the European Theater during the height of WWII. The driver of a “dragon wagon” Ambrose was part of the 457th Ordnance Evacuation unit responsible for transporting tanks to the battlefield. He took part in the Invasion of Normandy, the Battle of Northern France, the Battle of the Bulge and the Battle of Central Europe. He served his country proudly and never thought what he did was extraordinary, it was just his duty. After the war, he returned to Beaver Dam, built a home he would live in for nearly 50 years, raised two daughters and started a career as a rural mail carrier. He loved his job as a postman because it allowed him to travel the roads and interact with the people of his community. By 1978 he had worked for the post office for 34 years and logged 333,000 miles through the county roads of rural route 3 of Beaver Dam.
Then around the time that most men are retiring, Ambrose met and married Susan and soon again found himself the father of two young children. Rather than slowing down, a 60 year-old Ambrose became a Little League baseball coach and Zamboni driver. He also started a second career as a bus driver for Banes Bus Service. Today, an entire generation of Beaver Dam students, now adults, remember the kind man who made sure they got safely to school each day. As he reached his 70’s Ambrose again found a way to bring a little joy to his community, this time as a crossing guard at Jefferson School. He made sure that each child not only got across the street but also got a little joke or compliment that made them smile to begin their day.
Into his 80’s Ambrose continued to enjoy his love of gardening, became a grandfather again and continued to attend army reunions with the men who had fought together nearly 60 years earlier. He belonged to the St. Michael’s Holy Name Society, N.A.R.F.E, and the Retired Rural Letter Carriers. He was a member of the VFW for 68 years and took part in the Memorial Day parade until 2012. In 2011, he and son Paul took part in the Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. Never one to just sit around, Ambrose proudly acted as the main daycare provider for his grandson Carter even as he passed his 89th birthday. Ambrose spent his final days surrounded by family and friends at Golden Living rehabilitation in Randolph. In the short time he was there he made numerous friends, but that isn’t surprising—Ambrose had many aspects to his life but in all he drew people to him and did what he could to make sure he could bring something positive to their day.  Ambrose is survived by Susan, his loving wife of 35 years; his son Paul (Heidy) Reihbandt of Cambria; his daughters Kathy Reihbandt of Madison, Patricia Fredrick of Ripon, and Teresa (Jason Mishelow) Drews of Milwaukee; and his four cherished grandchildren: M.
