Klippel, Anna Maria
Death of Anna Maria Klippel
The morning dailies of St. Joseph, of Sunday last, notice the death of our aged mother, which occurred in that city on Saturday Dec. 11, 1875, of apoplexy.  The account as published is as follows:
It becomes our painful duty to chronicle the death of another of the landmarks of St. Joseph.  We refer to old Mrs. Klippel, who departed this life, at the residence of her son-in-law, the late John P. Fink, on Saturday morning the 11th of December, after an illness of only two days, aged seventy-six years, two months and eighteen days.

Mrs. Klippel was a native of the village of Essenheim, Grand Duchy of Hessen Darmstadt, Germany.  She emigrated to the United States in 1838, and settled with her family in Cincinnati, from whence in 1850 she removed to St. Joseph, where she was universally known and respected as a kind, christian woman.  There is scarcely a family among the early settlers of St. Joseph but will remember grandmother Klippel and her good offices in waiting on children and their mothers.  Mrs. Klippel was the mother of nine children, three of whom, as well as her husband, preceded her to the spirit land, and the fourth, her oldest son George, mysteriously disappeared over two years ago.  The unknown fate of her son George Klippel was the cause of much distress of mind to her.

Mother Klippel was an acceptable member of the German branch of the M. E. Church in whose pale she died.  Her funeral took place at 2 o’clock p.m., from the residence of the late John P. Fink, corner of Twelfth street an Frederick Avenue, from there the funeral proceeded to the German Church, corner Third and Robidoux streets where Rev. H. Kriege delivered an appropriate funeral discourse to a very large audience.  Her remains were interred at the family burial on Mount Mora
cemetery.
