Wolterman Genealogy - Week 28

Next I’ll be writing about my husband’s great-grandmother, Filomena Reichel. She was born 13 May 1873 in Austria. Her parents were Frank and Francina (Fidler) Reichel. I have no information regarding any siblings she might have had.

Mathias and Filomena
According to census records, Filomena emigrated to the United States in 1892 when she was 19 years of age, settling in Minnesota. She married Mathias John Pfeffer, and they had 9 children together. Their family was covered in Week 21, which can be found here.

Filomena died of coronary occlusion due to arteriosclerosis on 26 October 1947 in Renville County, Minnesota, where she is also buried. She was 74 years of age.
