DIES AT AGE 67 YEARS
In the death of Charles Trautman, which occurred at 4:15 o’clock p.m.
Wednesday, May 5th, 1926, at his home on his farm north of Ste.
Genevieve, this community has lost another very good citizen. Mr.
Trautman had been in robust health until the Twentieth of last
February, when he was stricken with paralysis.
His age was 67 years, 4 mo., 20 days. Of late he has been able to get
about but his health was badly impaired and last Wednesday he passed
away suddenly from the effects of heart failure. The funeral will be
held this morning, Saturday, May 8th, from the residence to the Church
of Ste. Genevieve, where a Requiem High mass will be said for the
repose of his soul.
Interment will be in Calvary Cemetery at Valle Spring.
Mr. Trautman was born in Ste. Genevieve, County on December 25, 1858, a
son of the late Peter and Mrs. Monica Fallert Trautman Sucher. At the
age of about twenty-years he came to Ste. Genevieve with his mother and
has since lived on his farm north of town. September 8th, 1896, he was
married to Miss Theresa Flieg of Zell. To them eight children were
born, Veronica dying in infancy. The seven living children are Rose,
Joseph Anton, Christine, Edwin, Raymond, and Louis. He also leaves two
sisters, Mary, Mrs.Metcalf, of St. Louis, and Louise, Mrs. Reinhardt
Stuppy, of Ste. Genevieve. His wife died on March 15th, 1914.
Mr. Trautman was a progressive farmer and citizen and his death is a
distinct loss to the community and severe blow to his family and,
friends. He was a loving husband and, father, a consistent Catholic, a
good and honest man, and his bereaved ones have the sympathy of a wide
acquaintanceship in their great
sorrow. May he rest in peace.
