Obituary in Butler Record, Thursday, March 17, 1927

     Christian Teutsch, son of Michael and Sarah Teutsch, was born in Alsaca Lorraine, France, April 15th 1852, and departed this life near Butler, Ind., March 5, 1927.  The family came to America in the Fall of 1860 and located near Butler, where they resided until answering the summons one by one, of a family of five children, the Father and Mother having departed many years ago.  There remains one sister, Mrs. Mary Tomlinson now residing near Washington D.C.
     Christian Teutsch was united in marriage to Miss Almira Charles 1883, the Rev. Kane officiating.  To this happy union was born one child, Mrs. Fay Gallagher, of Toledo, Ohio.
     In the month of September, 1926 our departed brother found Jesus Christ as his personal Savior.  He was a faithful Christian the remaining time of his life here, having often attended the services at the Waterloo Full Gospel Mission.  In his last illness he spoke the words of consolation to those near and dear to him while it was hard to say goodbye, yet he knew the Lord had a better place prepared for him and he wanted to go.  His last words to wife, sister, and friends were, "Meet me in Heaven."
     The bereaved wife, daughter and relatives wish to thank the friends and neighbors for their kindness shown in the illness of our departed one, also appreciation for the floral offerings."
