DEATH CAME SUDDENLY
MRS. JOHN G. HOEHL CALLED HENCE UNEXPECTEDLY
AT HER HOME SUNDAY MORNING BY HEART FAILURE.
July 31 1898 (hand written)
The many friends of Mrs. John G. Hoehl were deeply pained Sunday morning to learn that she had suddenly expired and answered the final summons. She was about on Saturday evening, apparently more cheerful than ever, arose Sabbath morning at six o’clock, as usual, feeling well, but shortly thereafter she complained of a pressure over her heart, and in less than an hour she had passed away.
Deceased was born in Kroegelstein, Bavaria, Germany, March 31st, 1821, and was consequently in her 78th year. She came to America with her husband in 1852, coming direct to Muscatine, where she resided up to the time of her death. She was a quiet, neighborly neighbor, a faithful wife and companion, and a good mother and friend. She was for years a faithful member of the German Evangelical church and also of the Ladies’ Aid Society of that church.
Catherine Hoehl was the mother of eight children, four of whom, with her husband, have preceded her in death, the surviving children being Mrs. Herman Schmidt, John Hoehl, John L. Hoehl and Mrs. Wm. Molis, the two sons being residents of Kansas City. John L. arrived from Kansas City this morning, but John cannot come, being on the road and in western Colorado. Nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren are also called upon to mourn. Mrs. Hoehl was married at Daunfield, Bavaria, Germany, June 1st, 1845, her husband dying March, 1895.
The funeral is appointed for Tuesday afternoon at two o’clock, conducted by Rev. F.C. Klein, from the home of Wm. Molis, at the corner of Iowa avenue and Eighth street. The pall-bearers will be Herman Schmidt, Wm. Molis, J.L. Hoehl, Ernest, Julius and Carl Schmidt.
