Billerbeck, Julia (2 JAN 1859 - 29 DEC 1923)

Julia Jahn was born in La Crosse, Wis. Jan. 2, 1859. At the age of two years, with her parents, she moved to Buffalo Co., Wis., where she grew to womanhood. In 1877, she was united in marriage to Wm. Billerbeck, moving to Garden Valley, Jackson Co. and settling on a farm, where they lived until 1904, when she moved to Spokane, Wash. In 1919, she moved to Enterprise, Oregon, where she resided until March 7, 1922, when she came east to visit her daughter, Mrs. Will Ringrose. Being more improved in heath than she had been in the past three years, she was persuaded to remain for an extended visit.

She was in her usual good health and spirits on Dec. 29th, and bidding the usual goodnight, was preparing to retire at 8:30, when stricken with apoplexy, passing away at 10 o'clock.

She leaves her husband, two sons, and two daughters, August and Mrs. Myrtle Repplinger of Enterprise, Oregon, Frank of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and Mrs. Will Ringrose of Garden Valley; one sister, Mrs. Mary Dunn of La Crosse; and seven grandchildren.

The funeral was held Jan. 2nd, on her 65th birthday, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Will Ringrose, Rev. Slack officiating. Interment was in the Garden Valley Cemetery, near her mother and brother. She will be sadly missed by those near and dear to her.
