Gloff, Amelia (30 APR 1860 - 15 JUN 1924)

Mr. and Mrs. Harold Holden were called to Sheboygan Falls a week ago Sunday by the sudden illness of her mother, Mrs. Amelia Gloff. They arrived at the home of Mrs. Holden’s sister, Mrs. Robert Scheuneman, early Monday morning, but too late. The Angel of Death had visited the sick room at 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Mrs. Amelia Gloff, aged 64 years, died on Sunday afternoon, June 15, 1924, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Robert Scheuneman in the town of Sheboygan Falls. Death was due to a paralytic stroke, which she suffered the day before.

She was born in Manitowoc Co., April 30, 1860, but had spent the greater part of her life in Sheboygan Falls. The past six years she had made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Harold Holden, one mile east of Abbotsford, Wis.

She leaves to mourn her loss one son, Jesse Gloff of Menominee, Mich., and two daughters, Mrs. Robert Scheuneman of Sheboygan Falls and Mrs. Harold Holden of this village; also three brothers and two sisters.

The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. at the Sheboygan Falls Baptist Church, Rev C. D. Mayhew officiating. The pallbearers were six nephews and interment was made in the Sheboygan Falls Cemetery.

Abbotsford friends extend heartfelt sympathy.
