A death in Milwaukee on Thursday last week following a long illness of Mrs. Lina Zabel (nee Richter), eldest daughter of Mrs. Wm. Bach here from Mrs. Bach's first marriage with Mr. Gustav Richter. Mrs. Zabel was born 02 October 1850 here in Manitowoc and grew up here. She is well-known by most of the residents of our city. Because she showed great musical promise she went to Germany as a young lady and studied at the Music Conservatory of Koeln (Cologne). From there she returned to Milwaukee and spent a year as a music and vocal teacher. In 1882 she married there with Mr. Paul Zabel. Last Fall she fell ill and underwent an operation which did not bring about the healing which had been hoped for, and she underwent several more operations with no better results. Ultimately death released her from further suffering. Mrs. Zabel is survived by her husband, 2 daughters, and a stepson, as well as a sister, Mrs. Reiter in Milwaukee, and her elderly mother, Mrs. Wm. Bach who has been living in Milwaukee since last Fall. The funeral was held Saturday in Milwaukee.
