Long Illness Fatal for Frank Ullrich
One of City's Oldest Undertakers Dies At Age of 76
Frank J. Ullrich, 76 years old, of 1586 Lawrenceville Road, one of Trenton's oldest undertakers, died yesterday afternoon at Princeton Hospital following a lengthy illness. He retired in 1929, the business succeeding to his son, George F. Ullrich.
Born in Germany, Mr. Ullrich came to this county with his parents shortly after the Civil War and settled on a farm in Sebewaing, Mich., where the family built a log cabin. On Thanksgiving Day, 1887, Mr. Ullrich arrived in Trenton, where he was to remain for the remainder of his life.
A cab driver for the old Reading Cab Company, he purchased his cab from the company when it disbanded and within a short time had acquired about 10 cabs as livery wagons, several of which he hired out for funerals.
In 1900, he decided to leave the cab business and become an undertaker and enrolled in an embalming school in Philadelphia. He remained in the business until his retirement.
In 1894, he married Mary E. Reeg, who died in 1922. In 1930, he married Mrs. Clinton Cutter (sp) (nee Alpha Hildinger), who survives him. Other survivors, in addition to his son, George, include four daughters, Mrs. Paul Seiler and Mrs. John Eisenbach, both of Trenton; Mrs. Joseph Reeves, of Detroit and Mrs. Annette Fowler also of Trenton; three sisters , Sister Celestine, Sister Gabriel and Sister Bernard, all nuns in Chicago; and a brother Leo Ullrich, of Sebewaing, Mich. Six grandchildren also survive.
Funeral services will be held from his late home Wednesday morning at 8 o'clock, with solemn requiem mass at St. Francis Church at 9 o'clock. Interment will be in Holy Sepulcher Cemetery. Friends may call at the home Tuesday afternoon and evening.
