Agatha C. Breuer, age 108, of Prairie du Chien, WI, formerly of Bloomington, passed away on Friday, November 1, 2019 at Prairie Maison in Prairie du Chien. She was born on July 24, 1911, the daughter of John and Mary (Sandman) Bierman. Agatha married Fred Breuer on November 15, 1932 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Bloomington. She farmed with her husband for many years in the Glen Haven area before retiring to Bloomington in 1976; Fred passed away in 2004 after 72 years of marriage. Agatha was a faithful member of the St. Mary’s Help of Christians Catholic Church in Glen Haven, and later also became an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Bloomington. She especially enjoyed taking part in Ladies Society and helping with the senior’s potluck and card playing activities. Agatha was a longtime homemaker and super cook, who made sure no family or guest ever went away hungry.
