"Transcript of the above obituary"

Mrs. Henry Kollmeyer, who before her marriage was Clara Griffin, was born on August 1, 1891, about two and a half miles east of Farmington, being the daughter of Wm. J. Griffin and his wife, Annie, nee Moore. On March 12, 1914, she entered the estate of holy matrimony with Henry Kollmeyer. They soon erected a home on their farm on Highway 61 where they built up a fine dairy business by hard and honest work. God blessed their union with one son, Harry, who is with them at home. For the past three years, Mrs. Kollmeyer had been a devoted mother to her little niece, Marilyn Joan Griffin, whose mother died in giving her birth. Thus this little family had spent 25 years of happy married life. A few weeks ago Mrs. Kollmeyer was taken seriously ill and had to be removed to St. Luke's Hospital in St. Louis where she received the best of care, but closed her eyes in death on Sunday morning at 4:30 o'clock. She was a faithful member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, having been confirmed on Feb. 6, 1916.

She leaves to mourn her departure her husband, Henry Kollmeyer, and son, Harry; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. J. Griffin; two sisters, Myrtle Lee (Mrs. Fred) Kollmeyer and Willa Marie (Mrs. Frank) Kollmeyer, also three brothers, Moore Griffin, J. B. Griffin and J. V. Griffin. One brother and one sister, William Curren and Nona Nadine, preceded her in death.

Funeral services were held in St. Paul's Lutheran Church on Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 conducted by her pastor, Rev. E. C. Pardieck. Burial was in the Lutheran Cemetery, Neidert Funeral Service in charge.
