Anna Goettsch, Obituary, 1902.

The death of Mrs. Hans Goettsch, one of the old residents of this city, occurred this morning at the family home, 1008 West Ninth Street. It was the sort of death that most people think they would like to have some to them, when come it must. The lady was found dead. She was sitting in her chair in a grape arbor at her home. There was nothing to indicate that there had been any struggle at the last moment. The end had been a peaceful, and apparently as painless, as any other sleep that might have overcome her. Mrs. Goettsch was born 73 years ago in Germany. Some 45 years ago she came to this city with her husband and has lived here ever since. She is survived by her husband and seven sons. She leaves a good name behind her and in her swift departure, she is mourned by many people. The arrangements for the funeral have not been made.
