"Bertha Laura (Fechner) Zechiel - Bertha Laura F(Fechner) Zechiel is the wife of Jerome Zechiel. She is the daughter of Carl and his wife Olga (Brose) Fechner and was born in South Bend, Indiana April 15, 1885.

Before her marriage tro Jerome Zechiel she was occupied in the millinery business and cultivated the art of refined taste and becoming beauty which is but too often looked upon with a spirit of discredit if not of contempt. Yet God himself made all things beautiful as well as good; and to be careful about one's personal appearance with others is a virtue to be praised. 

Herman Jerome Zechiel and Bertha Laura Fechner were united in holy wedlock March 10, 1909 at the brides home. The service was conducted by the Reverend A. J. Michael then pastor of the Culver Reformed church.

Their three interesting children are: Donald Walter, Margaret Imogene, and Jerome Junior."
