Repplinger, Eva (20 NOV 1839 - 23 JAN 1910)
Mrs. Eva Repplinger died at the home of her son Frank in the town of Cleveland, Jackson Co., Wis. last Sunday morning at about 10 o'clock, after an illness of about two months. The funeral was held Tuesday morning at the St. Joseph's Catholic Church at Fairview, the services being conducted by the pastor Rev. Fr. Wernerus. The burial was in the family lot in the cemetery at the church. There was a large congregation of friends and relatives present at the services.
Mrs. Repplinger, whose maiden name was Eva Grun, was born on Nov. 20, 1839, in Wengen, Germany, and was united in marriage with Mr. Henry Repplinger in 1865. In 1881 they came with their family to America and soon after landing came here (Humbird, Clark County, Wis.) to make their home. Since that time the farm in the town of Cleveland has been occupied by them. About seven years ago the husband died, but Mrs. Repplinger continued to reside on the farm until a month ago, when she was taken to her son's home for better care.
To them were born five sons and two daughters, as follows: Frank and Jacob of the town of Cleveland; Mrs. Lizzie Weirather of Keokuk, Ia.; Matt of Joplin, Mo.; John and Mrs. Mary Enright of Nauvoo, Ill.; and Peter of Connell, Wash.
Until the last few months Mrs. Repplinger had been an active and energetic woman. She was a devout member of the Catholic Church, a hospitable neighbor and a good friends.
