Clayton County Register, Thur., 13 June 1935. Monona column.
Ida H. Walch,, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Walch, was born near Monona December 21, 1874, and her death occurred at Rochester, Minn., May 31, 1935, after an illness of over a year.
After completing her school work at the local high school, she was employed as rural teacher, later as a clerk in a store in Oelwein, and then in the Steele brother's store in Monona, where she met Mr. Maiers. They were married January 21, 1902, in the St. Patrick's Catholic church, the pastor, Rev. Father M. J. Hogan performing the ceremony.
Mr. and Mrs. Maiers are the parents of three daughters, Miss Alberta F. Maiers of Dubuque, Mrs. Alfonzo Doyle (Marcella) of Parnell, Iowa, and Miss Mary Francys of Rochester, Minn. Surviving her are three sisters and two brothers, also, namely, Ninus A. Walch of Madison, Wis., and William Walch of Elkader, and Mrs. William F. Humphrey (Sarah) of Monona, Mrs. Minnie Jenkins, Dubuque, and Miss Hilda Walch of Marysville, Calif., all of whom were present at the funeral services.
On Monday morning at the St. Patrick's Catholic church services were held, with burial in the adjoining cemetery. Two cousins of Mr. Maiers, the Rev. Father Michael Rus, an instructor in the DePaul University of Chicago, and the Rev. Michael Kerper of Dubuque, and the local pastor, the Rev. Father Luke Donlon, were present. The Requiem Solemn High Mass was offered up by Father Rus, with Father Kerper as deacon and Father Donlon, sub-deacon. The pastor delivered a fitting sermon.
Mrs. Maiers was an active member of the Rosary confraternity, the Woman's club, and the Women's Relief Corps, the members of the latter organization forming an honorary guard at the burial.
A good mother, a loving wife, and a kind and generous friend has gone to her reward, her generosity to her church, which bespeaks her loyalty, will be missed. Her ambition for her children was especially marked, always ready to do her part no matter what sacrifice was necessary. She was a very good neighbor. The large crowd at the funeral services attests to that fact. Sympathy is extended the widower and children in their bereavement.
