Poppe, Nellie (4 JAN 1889 - 4 FEB 1920)

Miss Nellie Poppe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Poppe, died of influenza and pneumonia at her home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Wednesday, Feb. 4, 1920, aged thirty-one years and one month. Deceased was born here on Jan. 4, 1889, and with the exception of a few years residence at Withee, Clark County, has always resided here. Her retiring nature led her to hide her best qualities from public gaze, but they were reveled to those who enjoyed her acquaintance, yet it was in her home that her true worth was most conspicuous. She was a kind and loving daughter, and her devotion to the family circle had no limit. Her death comes as a dark shadow to her friends and to her relatives who loved her so dearly. She leaves to mourn, her parents and two brothers, Wm. and John Poppe of Nestoria, Mich. The funeral took place on Saturday last from St. Bernard's Church, interment following in the Catholic Cemetery.
