Mrs. Levi Gruber Died Suddenly Friday Afternoon

Mrs. Levi Gruber died suddenly at her home in the south part of town, Friday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock, following a paralytic stroke which she suffered Thursday afternoon as she was sitting in a chair at her home. Her death was unexpected and a great shock to her family and her many friends. And while she was not in the best of health, yet her physical condition did not cause the family to suspect that the end was so near.

Mary Florence Kolp, daughter of John and Anna Mary Kolp, was born in Hockerville, Pa., Feb. 13, 1874. At the time of her death, she was aged 54 years, 8 months and 6 days. She was united in marriage to Levi Gruber, December of 1905. There were no children, but an adopted daughter, Dollie Carl Gruber is left, together with the husband to mourn her death. She is also survived by one sister and three brothers, namely: Mrs. Katie Johnson of Ipava, Martin Kolp, Browning, Abraham and Elmer Kolp, of Astoria.

Mrs. Gruber united with the Church of the Brethren at Astoria, Nov. 21, 1920 and lived a faithful, conscientious Christian life.

Funeral services were held at the Astoria Church of the Brethren Sunday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock, Rev. E. F. Caslow of Virden, officiating, assisted by Rev. W. R. Seitzinger, Astoria. Burial in South Fulton cemetery.
