Obituary from the Edwardsville Intelligencer, Edwardsville, Madison County, Illinois, Thursday, July 9, 1936, page 4:
  Marine, IL--Funeral services for Mrs. Lisetta Elizabeth Holtgreve were held at the Evangelical Church Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. A.C. Kuehn had charge of the service which was largely attended. Mrs. Holtgreve, the daughter of Henry and Wilhelmina Stuckwisch, was born May 20, 1862 in Marine township. Her entire life was spent in this township.  Nov. 18, 1884 she was married to William Holtgreve by Rev. Urban at Marine. They went to housekeeping on a farm southwest of Marine where they lived for 29 years. Upon retirement they moved to Marine where she lived 22 years. In 1934 they observed their golden wedding anniversary. She was a member of the Ladies Aid Society of the Evangelical church and a member of the home department of the Sunday school. While visiting at the home of her daughter, Mrs. John Schmitt, she became ill and remained bedfast for about a week, complications causing her death on Tuesday, June 30 at 12:40 a.m.  She had attained the age of 74 years, 1 month and 10 days. A son, Frank preceded her in death in 1914. Mrs. Holtgreve is survived by her husband, Wm.
