(The Davenport Democrat and Leader- December 6, 1921)

Mrs. Louisa Boettcher, affectionately known to her many friends as "grandma," mother of Miss Tillie B. Boettcher, matron of detention home, with whom she lived, died this morning at 12:30 at her home, 124 West Fifth street, after having been confined to her bed for 12 weeks. Death was due to old age.

She was born May 22, 1837, in Deutsch Eulau, West Prussia, Germany, and on Nov. 24, 1857, was married to Adam Boettcher, who came with her to Davenport in 1872. Her husband was well known here, he having worked for Knostman & Peterson for 35 years. The couple celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1907. Mr. Boettcher died Nov. 23, 1912, at the age of 82. Mrs. Boettcher was a lifelong member of the Lutheran church.
