      Death of Mrs. Alter is a Shock
      Death on the eve of the holiday season has cast its pall on the home of Oscar A Alter, one of the city’s best known residents. Mrs. Alter’s death occurred at the hospital at 8:30 Saturday evening almost at the same hour that death claimed John Schuette, a relative of Mr. Alter. Although ill for some time, Mrs. Alter’s condition had becoming alarming
      only during the past week and she had been at the hospital only ten days when the end came. The announcement of her death came as a shock to the community. Mrs. Alter, nee Dora Beer, was a lifelong resident of Manitowoc, having been born in this city September 8, 1860, in a building in the same block where, for 30 years, Mr. and Mrs. Alter have made their home, their residence at 813 York Street being directly opposite to the building in which Mrs. Alter was born. Decedent attended the local schools, graduated here and from the Oshkosh normal and for some years previous to her marriage was a teacher in the third ward and second ward schools. She was married in 1884 to Oscar A Alter, the husband who, with two sons, Erwin of L'anse, Mich., and Eugene of Milwaukee, survive here. One sister, Mrs. John Ornes of Minneapolis also survives. Mrs. Alter, while essentially a home woman, her home and family being her
      first thought, had taken an active interest in literary work and particularly in the Clio Club of which she served as president for several years, retiring from active association only when her health failed her. She was charitable and for many years was prominently identified with the work of the South Side Ladies Aid of which she was also president for a number of terms. A woman of gentle refinement, quiet and unassuming, she was endeared to a circle of friends who knew her generous nature and high character and who sincerely mourn her loss with a deep sense of appreciation of her life and character. Her funeral will be held tomorrow, Tuesday afternoon, from the home on York
      Street at 3 o’clock with the services conducted at the cemetery chapel by the Rev. M.S. Axtell. Mrs. William Borcherdt and Miss Mathilda Schmidt will sing.
