MRS. EARL C. GROTE
Mrs. Earl C. Grote, Glenville, succumbed to peritonitis infection, which set in subsequent to an operation performed 14 weeks ago for a ruptured appendix, last night at 10:30 o'clock at the West Side sanitarium, York. Mrs. Grote was aged 25 years, six months and five days. She was before marriage Miss Anna Miller.
The deceased was stricken 14 weeks ago and was taken to the Maryland General hospital, Baltimore, where an operation was performed. She convalesced at the hospital for eight weeks following the operation and when sufficiently recovered was returned to her home. However, a little more than three weeks ago, peritonitis set in and she was immediately taken to the West Side sanitarium, where an operation was performed in an effort to check the infection.
She is survived by her husband, two children, Earl C., Jr., four, and Helen Virginia, two, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Miller of Brodbeck; three sisters, Mrs. Melvin A. Krebs, Glenville; Mrs. George Lau, Spring Grove; and Mrs. Leroy Hinkle, Hanover, and two brothers, Curvin Miller, Brodbeck; and Andrew Miller of Glen Rock.
The funeral will take place Sunday from the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William C. Miller, near Brodbecks, with concluding services in Stone church and interment in the adjoining cemetery. The Rev. Paul D. Yoder will officiate, assisted by the Rev. W. H. Ehrhart.
Mrs. Anna M. (Miller) Grote was born near Brodbeck's, Pa., December 7, 1903, and died in the West Side Sanatorium, York, Pa., June 12, 1929, aged 25 years, 6 months and 5 days. Mrs. Grote had been baptized by Rev. N. W. Sechler, February 18, 1904, received into membership of St. Jacob's (Stone) Reformed church by Rev. J. L. Guth, October 21, 1916; married to Earl C. Grote, March 22, 1924. While living in the Stone church community she was an active attendant at both Sunday School and church. Her early demise and leaving her husband with two little children, has elicited the sympathy of the community for her husband, and for both families, the Grote's and the Miller's. Death is no respecter, of person or age. May we direct the husband and the bereaved families to the comfort of their Heavenly Father, for nowhere else can consolation be found.
The funeral services were held from the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William C. Miller, near the Stone church on Sunday afternoon, June 16, 1929. There were brief services at the house by her pastor assisted by the Lutheran pastor, Rev. W. H. Ehrhart. It was estimated that 1800 relatives and friends had gathered at the Stone church for the services. Her pastor spoke from the text, Luke 23:28. Rev. Ehrhart also spoke words of comfort. Burial was made in the new cemetery.
