FUNERAL CARD: Augusta Knapp 1868-1902

Mrs. Augusta Knapp
Died March 19, 1902
Age 34 yrs. 10 mos. 10 days

Gone but not forgotten

We have lost our darling mother,
She has bid us all adieu;
She has gone to live in heaven,
And her person is lost to view.
Oh, that dear one, how we loved her!
Oh, how hard to give her up;
But an angel came down for her
And removed her from our flock.

This was among my grandmother's things. She must be a relative, however, I have not been able to track her down as yet. No idea where she lived or died. Looks like her birthdate might be around May 9, 1868
