Gottlieb Adolf  --  1963

     Funeral services for Gottlieb Adolf Sr., a resident of the community for 55 years, were held Monday, Nov. 18, at the First St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Burlington, conducted by Pastor W. H. Rath.  Funeral arrangements were by the Hendricks Mortuary.  Burial was at Fairview Cemetery, Burlington. 

    Gottlieb Adolf Sr. died Nov. 14 at the Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital in Burlington at the age of 72 years, 11 days.  He was born at Anapa, Michaelsfeld, South Russia, Nov. 3, 1891, the son of William and Margaret Adolf.  He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church of Michaelsfeld.

    He arrived in this community (the Settlement) in May of 1908, and, with the exception of two years (1935-37) spent in Newberg, Ore., lived most of his life on two farms in the Settlement northwest of Burlington.  One of his farms was a homestead.

    On March 25, 1914, he was united in marriage with Mrs. Barbara Wiedman (nee Stahlecker), at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Bethune.  God blessed this home with five children, Gottlieb Jr., Leah, Herman, George Wiedman, all of Burlington, and Ella, who died in infancy.

    In 1953 Mr. and Mrs. Adolf moved and made their home in Burlington.  His health began to decline seriously about a year ago.

    He was preceded in death by a brother, August; three sisters and his parents.  He is survived by his wife; his living children (mentioned above); four brothers, William of Newberg, Ore., Carl and John of Bethune, Christ of Burlington; five sisters, Mrs. Margaret Meyer of Bethune, Mrs. Tina Lessing of Henderson, Mrs. Frank Kramer of Loveland, Mrs. Jake Hasart. of Burlington and Mrs. William Weisshiar of Yuma; also by 11 grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
