Koch. On Thursday, May 3, 1900, at 6:15 a.m., at her residence, 345 11th street southeast, after a long and painful illness, which she bore with Christian fortitude, Ella May, beloved wife of William Koch and daughter of the late W.A. and M.E. Murray.

How I miss thee, dearest wife,
No one e'er can tell;
Faithful, patient, loving, true,
Thou hast gone to heaven to dwell.
Our mama is sleeping, So free from all pain.
O wake not her sweet spirit
To suffer again.
She slumbers so soundly,
O let her sleep on'
Her sickness is ended
And troubles all gone.
O think how she suffered
And moaned with the pain.
In the long night hours,
We soothed her in vain.
Till God in His mercy
Sent down from above
An angel to whisper
A message of love.
May she rest in peace.

Funeral from her late residence, Saturday, May 5, at 3 o'clock p.m. Relatives and friends invited.
