Lewis Koehne, 73, Dies at Home

Lewis Koehne, senior, 73 years old, of 405 E. 3rd St., died suddenly Sunday at 7:45 AM, at his home as a result of heart disease. He'd been apparently in excellent health almost up to the time of death, and had given up work at the Illinois glass company, where he had been employed many years, only six months ago.

Those who survived him are his widow, Mrs. Tillie Koehne; a daughter, Emma; and three sons, Louis Jr, Harry, and Ed Koehne; and a great-granddaughter, Harriet Koehne. He also leaves three sisters Mrs. Al Roberts, Mrs. C. N. Streeper and Mrs. William Roper and a brother, William Koehne, all of this city.

The body may be viewed by friends at the Streeper funeral home.

The funeral service will be held Wednesday afternoon at 230 o'clock in the Streeper funeral home and internment will be in Oakwood Cemetery.
