Obituary from The Kewaunee Enterprise newspaper, Wisconsin, dated Friday, June 26, 1885:

At her home in the town of Carlton, on Tuesday, June 23, 1885, Metta Christina, wife of L. C. Outzen, aged 48 years, 9 days.

Deceased was born in Schleswig, Holstein, June 14, 1837. In the year 1857 she came to this country with her parents and was married in the town of Carlton to L. C. Outzen in 1862. The fruits of her married life were five children, three girls of whom survive her, and are aged respectively 8, 15, and 17 years.

Mrs. Outzen was sick only nine days, and the cause of her sudden death was inflammation of the bowels. On the first day of her illness she was in the city with her husband visiting relatives and celebrating her 48th anniversary, but no signs of illness were felt until she was on her way home, and, notwithstanding the untiring efforts made to arrest the disease, she grew gradually worse until death ended her short suffering.

The funeral took place from the Union Church in this city yesterday afternoon, and was attended by a large number of sympathizing friends of deceased and her surviving family. Reverend H. Carpenter, of Carlton, delivered the funeral sermon. Upon reaching the church, John M. Read Post, G. A. R., of which Mr. Outzen is an honored member, took charge of the obsequies and attended the funeral in a body.

Mrs. Outzen was a sister of Messrs. John and Jes Erichsen, of this city, and Andreas Erichsen, of Carlton, and was kind mother and true and loving wife. Her bereaved husband and relatives have the heartfelt sympathy of a very large circle of friends.
