MRS. ELIZABETH GROB
JULY 30, 1897

At the family home on Oak street, Thursday morning, July 29, 1897, Mrs. Elizabeth Grob, aged 45 years, 1 month and 3 days.
Mrs. Grob, whose maiden name was Walter, being a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Walter, of this city, was born in Baden, Germany, June 26, 1852, and came with her parents to America in 1856. In 1873 she was married to George J. Grob. Nine children were born to them, six of whom, with their father, her aged father and mother, and a large circle of other relatives are left to mourn her loss.
Deceased had been a long but patient sufferer from a lingering illness. Her husband and other relatives were constant in their devotion and care, and all that could be was done to make her comforable. Mrs. Grob was a consistent member of the Evangelical church, which she joined when but a young miss. She was a quiet, motherly woman, who, so long as her health would admit, was a mother living for her children and catering to the wants of the family circle. She goes to her final rest with assurances of having done her part in rearing a large family. The funeral rites will be held from the Baptist church Saturday morning at 10 o'clock.
