Wilhelmine Philips, (Mrs. Frese), was born in Oldenburg, Germany, May 6th, 1866, and died at Harrison, Nebr., Oct. 31st, 1914, aged 48 years, 5 months, 25 days. As is the custom of the Lutheran church she was baptized when 8 days old; at 14 years of age, after passing a satisfactory examination in the doctrine and faith of the church, she was in due order confirmed into membershp. On Nov. 15, 1888 sister Philips came to this country and on the 9th of December, 1888 was married to Philip Frese by the Rev. Joseph J. Hancock of the Congregational church in Lusk, Wyoming. During a visit to her sister in Gladbrook, Iowa, in February 1900, she united with the German Methodist church. For 26 years Mr. and Mrs. Frese lived a happy life together; children were born to them but died in infancy. They never had any other earthy home but the one made here on the Ridge, and here it was where she wanted to be buried. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Wehn of Harrison, Nebraska. The casket was covered with flowers.
