Mr. and Mrs. Greve and children moved to Abbotsford in May 1891, where Mrs. Greve resided until about six years ago when she with her daughter Cornelia, moved to Rib Lake, which was her home until her death.

Mrs. Greve was a woman of very quiet disposition was very well liked by the many friends she made during her lifetime. She was a member of Abbotsford Chapter O. E. S. for many years.

*Transcriber note: The July 13 obituary (not transcribed) is identical except for the paragraph on survivors which lists her sisters as her children. I assume the July 20 obituary was published as a correction. Based on obituaries posted on this site, the parents of Helen Tiedemann Greve were Christian and Magdalena (Langemak) Tiedemann.

**Transcriber note: Kiel, Wisconsin is in Manitowoc County and Calumet County, although it may have been Sheboygan County in 1859.

**The spelling of Helene was taken from a previous obituary entry.
