1833 - 1914


Watertown Gazette, 03 05 1914


Mrs. Albertina Sipp, widow of the late Frank Sipp, passed to her final reward at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Fred. Ohm, on Second Street at 2 o’clock Sunday morning, March 1, 1914, the cause of her death being stomach trouble, which confined her to her bed for two weeks previous to her death.  Deceased was born on Feb. 23, 1833, at Sabo, Germany, and, unattended, came to America and located in this city in August, 1856, and has ever since made it her home.  July 10, 1850, she was married to Frank Sipp, who died in this city on August 1, 1874.  Two children survive her, Edward Sipp and Mrs. Fred Ohm, also four grandchildren, all of whom reside in Watertown.  Tuesday afternoon her funeral took place from St. Luke’s Lutheran Church and her remains were interred in Oak Hill Cemetery beside those of her late husband.


Mrs. Sipps death is greatly regretted here, especially by the older residents, to whom she was well known.  She was a most excellent lady, and it may well be said of her that she led a truly Christian life, and faithfully and honorably fulfilled her mission on earth as a wife and mother, friend and neighbor.


Sipp, Albertina, b. 1833, d. 1914, Sec 8
