Jan 31 1899 (hand written)

This morning at 6:30 o’clock occurred the death of Mrs. Catherine Will Aumiller, at her home, 308 East Second street. She had been ill with a complication of diseases for over four years and confined to her bed for nearly six months. She was born in Bavaria, Germany, on April 2d, 1838, and when two years old, came to this country with her parents, who settled at once in Muscatine county. On Nov. 29th, 1857, she was united in marriage to Gotifried Aumiller, who survives her, together with four children, Mrs. Thos. Fahey and Miss Minnie, of Muscatine, Mrs. Chas. Weltz, of Winona, Wis., and Fred, of St. Louis.

Mrs. Aumiller was a faithful member of the German Evangelical church and led a beautiful Christian life, which was so truly portrayed in the patience, bravery and fortitude displayed during her long and tedious illness. Her absence will be most keenly felt by her large circle of friends and dear ones. She cheerfully bore up till the last and calmly chose those she wished to have as pall-bearers and arranged the details of her own funeral.

The funeral will be held from the German Evangelical church, Friday, at 2 o’clock p.m., Rev. Klein officiating.
