      Pioneer Died Day after 60th Wedding Anniversary

      Mrs. G. E. Krapf Was Found Dead in Home
      on Monday Afternoon

      When G. E. Krapf entered his residence on East Houghton Street on Monday afternoon after working in his garden, he found his wife dead in bed. She had been in apparent good health and had lain down to rest before Mr. Krapf left the house. Mr. and Mrs. Krapf were honered by a large group of friends at an "at home" gathering in the social room of the Evangelical United Brethern Church the previous afternoon, the occasion being their 50th wedding anniversary. Funeral services were conducted at the Evangelical United Brethern Church on Thursday afternoon by Rev. S.R. Wurtz, the pastor. Interment was made in Elkland cemetery. Mrs. Krapf was born in Goppingen, Germany, September 28, 1865, the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Kaiser. She came to the country and settled in Cass City in 1888 with her brother, the late William Kaiser, and sister, now Mrs. Samuel Striffler, of San Diego, California.

      On July 10, 1890, she was united in marriage with George Emanuel Krapf in the Evangelical parsonage at Caro. Following their marriage, they made their home on a farm one mile north and two and a half miles east of Cass City, where they resided for three years. Then they moved to a farm two and one half miles  east and one quarter mile south of Cass City. Here they lived for fifty years prior to moving to Cass City where she made her home until her death.

      Mrs. Krapf has been a member of the Evangelical United Brethren Church for the past sixty years. She is survived by her husband and one sister, Mrs. Samuel Striffler, of San Diego, California. One half brother and one stepsister preceded her in death.
