Mrs. Albertine Brisso Died Sunday at the Home of Her Daughter in Hadar

Mrs. Albertine Brisso, one of the first settlers of Pierce county, died Sunday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Laura Hickman, at Hadar. She had been ill since last September from cancer of the spine.

Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the home in Hadar and at 2:30 at the Lutheran church at Hadar. The Rev. George Tiefel will officiate.

Mrs. Birsso was born at Xonia, Wisconsin, January 10, 1855. She was the daughter of Herman Braasch, who homesteaded on what is now a part of the north west part of Norfolk.

At the age of ten year, she emigrated with her parents with the original colony of pioneers to what is now Norfolk in the summer of 1865. It took six weeks to make the trip here by ox teams and Mrs. Brisso with some of the other children walked part of the way.

On arrival here the colonists constructed sod homes and that which was erected from the Braasch home served as the first house of worship in Norfolk.

On December 12, 1875, she was united in marriage to August F. Brisso. At first they homesteaded on land three miles north of Hadar. From there they moved to a farm five miles north of Pierce and continued to reside there until the death of the husband in 1900.

Ten children came to this union, viz: Mrs. E.W. Schultz, Cheyenne, Wyoming; Mrs. Laura Heckman, Hadar; Mrs. E.J. Mullen, Los Angeles; Mrs. F.E. Morris, Dakota City, Nebr.; H.E. Brisso, Bloomfield; Mrs. Paul Huebner, Norfolk; Julius Brisso, Sioux City, Ia.; Ezra Brisso, Hadar; Herbert Brisso, Miller, S.D. and one daughter, Mr. J.A. Kuhl, died July 2, 1909.

The following brothers and sisters also survive: H.F. Braasch, Fred Braasch, Mrs. Frank Wichert and Mrs. Obed Raasch, of Norfolk, August Braasch, of Pierce, Ed Braasch, of Plainview, and Mrs. John Raasch, of Hadar. To sisters preceded her to the Great Beyond, viz: Mrs. Wm. Duering, of Norfolk, who died in 1907 and Mrs. Ferdinand Haase, of Norfolk, who died August 23, 1924.

Deceased is also survived by thirty-two grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Mrs. Brisso had always been a faithful member of the Lutheran church.

Her life was full of rich experiences of the past – the pioneer days when she did her part to help blaze a trail in the winning of the west to civilization.

At the time of her death she was aged 70 years, 7 months and 26 days.
