"OBITUARY

Mrs. Frank Muller, nee Anna Klock, was born on the 22nd of March 1845, at Oldersum, Germany. While yet a child she came with her mother to this country, the family locating in the neighborhood of Mt. Morris, Ill.

"On the 4th of August, 1864, she was united in marriage to Mr. Frank Muller. To this union seven children were born, four daughters and three sons. He husband died on the first of May 1909. A son and two daughters also preceded their mother in death. One of the daughters died while still an infant. The surviving children are Mrs. Lena Schaa of Forreston, John of Eldora, Iowa, Frank of Seattle, Washington and Mrs. Carrie Willier of Durand, Wisconsin. There are also surviving eleven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, one brother, Simon Klock of Forreston, and one step-sister, Mrs. Louis Paul, of Mt. Morris.

"Mrs. Muller died Wednesday, February 26, 1930, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Schaa, where for many years she had received kind and loving care, at the age of 84 years, 11 months and 4 days. For the last several years she was a member of the German Reformed Church. During her last illness she was very patient and resigned. We believe her hope was in God, from whose love not even death can separate.

"Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at 1:30 at the German Reformed Church, Rev. H. Huenemann officiating. Interment was at the West Grove Cemetery."
