Birth: 1826
Death: 1893

This morning at 5:50 o'clock the spirit of Mrs. Elizabeth Amman, wife of Conrad Ammann, assistant supervisor, passed to that bourne from "whence no reveler returns." Her death in a sense was unexpected at the time it occurred. For some 25 years Mrs. Ammann has been troubled more or less with some derangement of the stomach, but it was never so serious as to make her an invalid. A few years ago she suffered an attack of the grip, which has several times sincerecurred. This affliction coupled with her old trouble entirely undermined her health until she became seriously sick. Tuesday morning about 5 o'clock she told her husband that she thought she was dying, and advised him to call in the children, but supposing that her impression was the result of fever from which she had been suffering for some days, he reassured her. She rallied and was much better all day Tuesday; so much that the family expected a recovery. At 7:30 o'clock in the evening she became much worse and continued to sink until death came. It was thought she suffered a paralytic stroke at the time she got worse. Mrs. Elizabeth Ammann was born May 20, 1826 near Zurich, Switzerland. Her maiden name was Beyers. In the winter of 1858, she left the fatherland for American, landing here in 1859. She came direct to Decatur and shortly after her arrival Conrad Ammann and Miss Beyers were married. The result of this union was five children: John C., Henry, William G., J. Albert and Anna L. The children are all grown and all except William and Anna are married.They all live in Decatur and thus the family, a model one, has practically been unbroken until the death of the mother. Mrs. Ammann wae always an affectionate wife and mother, and always a great source of help to her husband in his business career, which has been very successful, beginning the manufacture of brick some years ago with but $250 capital Her help in this direction had no relation to penuriousness, as she had always a warm heart and an open hand for the poor and was never known to turn any one from her door hungry. Mrs Ammann and her husband were both members of the German Methodist church, and that society, as well as the family, will miss her help and her counsel. The funeral will be held Friday Feb. 24th. A short service will be held at the family residence, 851 East Cantrell street at 2 o'clock pm after which the remains will be taken to the German Methodist church, where the final ceremonies will be held, the pastor, Rev. Thalenhorst officiating. Interment will be in Greenwood cemetery.
