Mrs. Eliza Vonachen died at the home of her brother, Mr. William Oller, in Coldwater Wednesday morning from an attack of heart trouble. Mrs. Vonachen's home was in Taylorville, Illinois and she came to Coldwater the first of the week to spend the winter with her brother.

Mrs. Anne Vonanchen, formerly of Wilmore but who now lives in Pratt, Kansas and an aunt of Albert Oller of this city, is a daughter-in-law of Mrs. Vonachen.

Mr. William Oller and Mr. Louis Vonachen (eldest son of Mrs. Vonachen and husband of Anne) accompanied the body back to Illinois for burial.

From: The Wilmore News, October 16, 1931.

Note: The above obituary originally contained a couple of errors which have been corrected above.
