Mrs. Hintermeister's death occured at 5:30 on Monday afternoon at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Fred S. Miller, in Taylor Ridge, after an illness of only a few days. Born on April 17, 1850, at Berne, Switzerland, she came with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Schneider, to America in 1870 and ever since had been a resident of Rock Island county. On Feb 27, 1878, she was married to Gustav Hintermeister who passed away on Feb 9, 1906.

Another daughter, Mary, three brothers and a sister, had gone before.
Mrs. Hintermeister was one of the best-known women in the Taylor Ridge community. All thru her life her first thought was for the comfort and happiness of others and she practiced much self-denial for the benefit of those she loved. Thru her later years she took special interest in the young people of her community and rejoiced over their achievements.
"Her children shall rise up and call her blessed," for they can truly say, "She hath done what she could.
