Bertha Weiss - 1964

Mrs. Schmidke Passes At 59
An extended illness came to an end yesterday morning in a local hospital for Mrs. Bertha Schmidke, 59, when she passed away some 28 hours after fulfilling one of her last greatest desires, that of returning to Lodi, her former residence.
Mrs. Schmidke and her husband, Mr. Sam Schmidke, left Lodi little more than a year ago and became residents of Loveland, Colo.; Two weeks ago, on December 12, four of the couple's children, who live in Lodi and vicinity, left to be at the bedside of their mother and immediately began making arrangements for her return to Lodi.
At 5 o'clock Christmas morning, Mrs. Schmidke arrived in a local hospital where she spent the last few hours of her struggle for life with relatives and friends she wanted to see "just once more" before her inevitable passing.
A native of South Russia, she came to the United States in 1909 and settled in Bethune Colo. She and her husband moved to Lodi in 1934. She was a member of the local Church of God.
She is survived by her husband, Mr. Sam Schinidke, who returned with her, and the following children: Mrs. Emma M. McDowell, Lodi; Emil Schmidke, Lodi; Mrs. Elsie Mittleider, Hawaii; Theodore Schmidke, Sacramento; Esther Appel, Lodi; Lee Schmidke, Clay; Mrs. Hulda Schleining; Sacramento and Mrs: Miriam Werner, Lodi.
Also surviving are two sisters and three brothers, Mrs. Wilhelmina Stalecker (Stahlecker), Loveland, Colo.; Mrs. Josephine Stalecker (Stahlecker), Loveland, Colo.; Gottfried Weis (Weiss), Bethune, Colo.; Martin Weiss, Bethune; Colo., and John Weiss, Pacific Beach.
Mrs. Shmidke [sic] had eight grand-children, Rose, Marie and Marjorie McDowell, Lodi; Gail, William and Nadine Schmidke; Lodi; Kenneth and Donna Donna Schleining, Sacramerlto, and Diainna Appel, Lodi.
Funeral services will he held on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock in the chapel of the Wells Funeral Home with the Rev. Earl Shaffer, pastor of the local Church of God, officiating.
