Her granddaughter, Miss Henrietta Kleinhesselink, made her home with her and about one o’clock was called by her grandmother, who said she was sick.

The physician and relatives were called and came as soon as possible, but she had passed away before any of her children reached her bedside. Her physician was with her at the time of her death.

On September 29, 1877, she was united in marriage to Frank Vander Maaten, who passed away January 6 of the year 1927.
