Koplitz, Elizabeth (1850? - OCT 1934)

(Omro Northwester)

Mrs. Elizabeth Koplitz, 84, a resident of Winnebago County for 59 years, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Hugh Mongan, in the town of Poygan at six o’clock this morning. Death was due to old age.

Mrs. Koplitz was a native of Germany. She was married to Joseph Koplitz, also of Germany, in 1875. They came to America the next year and settled on a farm in the town of Omro, where they lived until 1898, when they moved to Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) and settled on a farm.

Mr. Koplitz died in 1919. Since that time Mrs. Koplitz has lived with her children.

Eight children were born to the couple, two of whom died previous to Mrs. Koplitz. Miss Annie Koplitz died in 1895 and Mrs. Fred Warnacke died in 1924. Those surviving are Fred, William and Henry Koplitz of Withee; Mrs. William Mongan and Mrs. Hugh Mongan, town of Poygan; and Mrs. Margaret Melcher, Los Angeles. Also surviving are 20 grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held Saturday morning at 10 o’clock at St. Thomas’ Church in the town of Poygan. The Rev. John Quigley will officiate. Burial will be in the Omro Junction Cemetery.
