Mrs. Rothmann before her marriage was Miss Elizabeth Dexheimer, a daughter of the late Anton and Elizabeth Dexheimer. She was born on a farm in the town of Rhine on July 14, 1865. She was married September 27, 1891, to George Rothmann of Garnet, Wis. The couple made their home here. After operating a blacksmith shop here for a number of years, Mr. Rothmann retired in 1912. He died two weeks ago, and despondency over his loss is believed to have prompted Mrs. Rothmanns act. Relatives said she had been morose.
