Clayton County Register, Thur., 10 Oct. 1935.

Guttenberg: Mrs. William Ortman (nee Anna Spangenberg), former long-time and highly respected Guttenberg resident, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Albert Werner, at Allison, on Wednesday evening of last week at 6:20 o'clock, at the age of 79 years, four months and six days, following an illness of long duration. The body was brought to Guttenberg for burial. Mrs. Ortman was born in Mecklenberg-Schwerin, Germany, on May 26, 1856, coming to America with her parents when a small child and settling in Cook county, Ill. When 13 years old she went to Delaware county, Iowa, with her parents. She was married at Dundee to William Ortman when 22 years old. After their marriage, the couple settled on a farm near Elkport, where they lived for many years, then coming to Guttenberg to reside. Her husband preceded her in death in 1914. Of late years Mrs. Ortman had been making her home with her daughter, Mrs. Albert Werner, at Allison. She is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Frank Selchow, of St. Paul, Minn.; Mrs. Henry L. Beerman, of Guttenberg, and Mrs. Albert Werner, of Allison; four sons, Frank Ortman of Strawberry Point, Fred, Edward and Walter Ortman, of Charles City; a number of grand and great-grandchildren and a number of other relatives and friends, by whom this worthy mother will be sadly missed. Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. W. J. F. Adix at St. John's American Lutheran church in Guttenberg on Saturday afternoon, with burial in the City cemetery. The funeral was very largely attended by relatives and friends from far and near.
