The family left her about 30 years ago to live in St. Louis. She was interred at Mt. Evergreen Cemetery here, Rev. T. L. Boesch, of St. Andrews Evang. Church, St. Louis conducting the services.

Memories of her come from her granddaughter: Sunday dinners were held at Grandma's. The adults ate first, while the children played in the other room. We knew we were being too loud when Grandma showed up at the door, hands on her hips. She did not have to say anything, one look and we knew we should be quieter.
