1927/06/28 ~ USA79 ~ Julia Ann (Overholser) Albitz
Julia Ann, daughter of Jake and Missouri [LANDIS] OVERHOLSER, was born April 27, 1870, and died at the home of her sister, Pearl ROOT, this city, June 28, 1927. She was 57 years, 2 months and 1 day of age. She was born just east of the Michigan Road and spent her entire life in and around Carroll county. In 1890 she was married to Joe ALBITZ and to this union were born six children, all living, to mourn the loss of a mother. They are Marvel, Frank, Gertrude, Clara, John and Marie. Two sisters, Mary KINGERY and Pearl ROOT; two brothers, Milt and John, and her father Jacob OVERHOLSER of Cutler, and twelve grandchildren also survive.
Mrs. Albitz had been sick for some time and five weeks ago her sister removed her to her home in Flora, where death relieved her suffering. She had been a member of the Brethren church of Burlington for a number of years and was a faithful believer in her Lord. Some time ago she called for an anointing service which brought her great peace of mind and heart.
Services and interment were held at Ball Hill cemetery Thursday, conducted by Rev. Frank G. Coleman, pastor of the Flora First Brethren church.
