Vronegg was born 9 August 1668 to Hans Rudolf Sidler and Margaretha Grob. She died 29 August 1669. She lived a year and 20 days. 

There was constant giving births and dying on the farms, similar to what happened in the stable with the animals. Death was seen as natural. Only medicine and hygienic measures lowered the infant and childhood mortality rate. However, there were very bad pestulenza waves in the 17th century in our regions. Many villages lost 30 to 40% of the population. (Peter Bertschinger)
