Mrs. Mary Klippel, 89 One of City's Oldest Residents Dies at Home

Mrs. Mary Klippel, age eighty-nine, one of the oldest residents of Seymour and one of the organizers of the St. Paul Congregational church, died this morning at 3 o'clock of senility.
She had been ill for the past three weeks.
She was born in the Sauers neighborhood, the daughter of Henry and Mary Meyer, but when a small girl moved to Seymour, where she has since resided. She was one of the first settlers in the community, which eventually grew into Seymour. She was one of the organizers of the St. Paul church and to it, in her young womanhood, she gave of her time and money.
For eight years, from 1888 to 1896, she was secretary of the Ladies Aid Society of the church.
She had a host of friends, who will mourn her death. She was loved and respected by all who knew her. She idolized children, and many played about her porch, where in later years she sat and knitted.
She was married in 1861 in Seymour to Christopher Klippel, who died in 1899. Five children, Peter and Henry of Lafayette, Fred of Indianapolis, and Mrs. L. F. Miller and Mrs. W. P. Schaffer of Seymour, together with Mrs. Louise Schaffer of Columbus, a sister, survive. There are nine grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the home, in charge of the Rev. F. J. Baumann, pastor of the Trinity Methodist church.
Friends may call at the home at any time.
