This obituary appeared in the Adamsville Register Adamsville, Ohio
Mrs Weber Roahrig aged 34 years died at her home in Winchester, Indiana, Monday August 18, 1917 following a years illness from tuberculosis. The funeral services were conducted at the late home last Wednesday and on Thursday the remains were brought here where short services were conducted in the Zion Lutheran Church by Revs I R Ladd and A W Manning and interment was made in the church cemetery. Emma Agnes Strohacker was born in Adams Township, Muskingum County August 26, 1883. On May 7, 1903 she was united in marriage to Weber Roahrig of near here. She was baptized in infancy and on 21 May 1900 was confirmed in the Zion Lutheran Church where she practiced its faith until two years ago when her husband became a Methodist minister, then joined the Methodist Church and remained a faithful member until the end. At the time she was stricken with the dread disease she was superintendent of the Sunday School but had to give that up on account of failing health. Mrs Roahrig was a woman of charitable ways and during her short life endeared herself to a host of friends who will regret to learn of her untimely death. Realizing the end was near she called her husband and family to her bedside and made request for her funeral. Besides the husband and two daughters Erdine and Mary, the parents Mr and Mrs Valentine Strohacker; and the following brothers and sisters remain to mourn their loss; John of Elnor, Indiana, George of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, Mrs George Smith of Zanesville, Allen, Adam and Mrs Wilmer Kreis of Coshocton, Mrs Abner Roahrig of Plainfield, Dallas, Russell and Mrs David Roahrig and Mrs Clarence Stockum of Adams Township.
