Obituary of Rosa Bergmann Dietert

OBITUARY

Mrs. Rosa Dietert, died in San Antonio, Sunday evening at the age of 76 years, 10 months and 20 days. She was born on August 10th in the year 1841, in Reichenberg, Austria. She came to America in the year 1853, at the age of twelve years; her maiden name was Rosa Bergman, she spent most of her life in Boerne and got married in the year 1860 on April the 8th, to William Dietert. She was the mother of nine children, eight living and one dead. Those that survive her are four sons, Theo Emil and Ed. of Kerrville, Ernst of Boerne, and four daughters; Mrs. Ida Dienger, of Boerne, Mrs. Olga Seffel ad Mrs. Rosy Vernon, of San Antonio, and Miss Alma Dietert of San Antonio.  She leaves seventeen grandchildren and one great. Services were read by Rev. Geo. Belsey, the Pall Bearers were Mesdames Joe Vogt, Paul Holekamp, Gus Bower, Charles Phillip, Chris. Schrader and August Dienger.”

Her funeral notice states she died June 30, 1918 and the funeral took place in the “family residence of her son, Ernest Dietert on July 2nd, at 5 p.m.”

The obituary in a San Antonio newspaper states she died at her home on “427 Montana Street, San Antonio where she had resided the past five years”

Rosa’s death certificate states she died of typhoid fever which she contracted in Boerne, Texas (yikes) and her father’s name was Bergman and mother maiden’s name was Ohnesorge.  Riebe Undertakers prepared the body for burial and sent it to Boerne. Her name on the death certificate is Mrs. Rosie Dietert. Miss Alma Dietert of 427 Montana provided the information.

It is amazing how much information I gathered about Rosa ‘Rosie” Bergmann Dietert from four small pieces of paper! Now on to census records, San Antonio City Directories, and descendants. I wonder if there was a typhoid outbreak in Boerne in 1918.

 Rosa is Adalbertha Bergmann Adam’s sister and the wife of Wilhelm Dietert.
