Fredericka MuellerThis year marks the 100th anniversary of Fredericka Bernhardt Mueller’s death on January 26, 1911. The cause of her death is recorded as a cerebral apoplexy which may have meant a number of things but was most likely a stroke. Funeral services were held at the home of her daughter, Mrs. F. W. Cruikshank, at 346 W William St. in Decatur. Services were attended by a large number of family and friends who were then joined by the factory employees in a march to Greenwood Cemetery. Fredericka was briefly interred at the cemetery mausoleum until the completion of the Mueller family mausoleum.
