  • Notes 
    • MRS. OTTO KLOTZ

      With deep feelings of regret we have this week the sad task of announcing the death of Elizabeth, relict of the late Otto Klotz, which occurred on Tuesday evening 2nd August, 1892 less than a month from the time in which her husband's spirit took its flight. Mrs. Klotz death is an inexpressibly sad one. Following so closely on that of her husband, the shock of whose demise the family had scarcely recovered from, it has completely prostrated them, As far as can be learned the cause of death was as follows:- -Mrs. Klotz and her daughters, Mrs. Mylius (with her children) and Miss Klotz, and Mrs. Stehle had been sitting in the garden chatting. Mrs. Mylius left about 8 o'clock for home. Shortly afterwards Mrs. Klotz complained that she felt chilly, and went to the house. Sy this time it was quite dark, and even darker in the house as the lamps were not yet lit. It is supposed Mrs. Klotz must have noticd the door was open leading to the hail, but going on, opened the cellar door in mistake, and fell head foremost down the stairs. Miss Klotz came immediately after her, and went to Mrs. Klotz's assistance at once and found her unconscious at the bottom of the stair. Help was at once summoned and medical men sent for, but despite all that could be done for her, the injured lady never regained consciousness, passing away about 11 o'clock. It is supposed that in falling the side of her head struck the steps, from there she alighted on her head on the cellar floor, death beeing attributed to concussion of the brain. For some years past Mrs. Klotz has not enjoyed good health, but during the last few months she has been much better, and even during her husband's illness, she bore up bravely. The deceased lady was universally esteemed by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. An earnest and loving helpmate to her husband during their fifty years of married life; a fond mother, and an earnest Christian gentle woman, we can safely say that all within sound of the doleful chiming of the church bell, felt as if they had lost a personal friend when they realized that Mrs. Klotz was no more. The funeral took place on Friday Afternoon.
