Jakobi, Esther (12 NOV 1901 - 20 Dec 1932)
Mrs. Conrad Jakobi nee Esther Phipps, was born on the 12th day of Nov. 1901, at Greenbush, Sheboygan, Wisconsin. On the 17th day of Oct. 1919, she was married to Conrad Jakobi, which union was blessed with one son. In 1921, the deceased was instructed in the doctrines of the Christian Religion and baptized and received into the membership of the Ev. Luth. Church, having been a member in the local church since 1931. The deceased has lived in this community since 1929 and has made many friends who were certainly shocked to learn of her sudden departure. The deceased has been ailing since last March, suffering from what is termed "The Addison’s Disease". In April She was removed to the St. Joseph’s hospital for treatment and improved sufficiently to return to her family. On Tuesday morning it again was found necessary to remove her to the hospital, where on that same evening at 7:50 P.M. she suddenly departed this life and entered that rest as we hope that is in store for the people of God. She attained the age of 31 years, 1 month and 1 day and now leaves to mourn her sorrowing husband, one son, Arnold Jakobi of Loyal; her father Arthur Phipps of Granton, also one sister and one brother, viz: Mrs. Lizzie Rhode of Greenbush, George Phipps of Loyal, and a half brother Judson Phipps of Granton, besides numerous relatives and a host of friends who have our heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement.
The funeral was held at the Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church at 1:30 Saturday afternoon, Dec. 17th, the Rev. H. F. Leschensky officiating. Burial took place in the Union Cemetery. The following were the pallbearers: Tom Berg, Wm. Kadolph, Wm. Klug, Frank Oestreich and Lawrence Bowman.
The ladies in charge of the flowers were: Mrs. Lawrence Bowman, Mrs. Wm. Kadolph, Mrs.Tom Berg, Mrs. Frank Oestreich, Mrs. Harry Oestreich and Mrs. Joe Vogel.
