Nurse Mary Nigl

I have heard that Mary Nigl was the City of Kaukauna’s first visiting (public) nurse in the early 1920’s. Apparently, there were many women who trained as nurses for World War I; and became available after the war ended. Any information or recollections?

Is this the same Anna Marie Nigl that married Sylvester Senso in 1937 and died in 1996??

Mary Nigl,who was the Public Nurse in Kaukauna, was the daughter of Josef Nigl II of Oshkosh Wis. Mary was trained as an Army Nurse and served with the U.S. Army during WWI. Mary Nigl was a cousin of mine. She never married, and died at King Veterans Home at the age of 100. Mary was distantly related to the Nigls from Schioctin and Appleton and to Marcus Nigl of Kaukauna.
