Obituary ~ Charles Leroy Kopp & Anna Catherine (Fett) KOPP

Mrs. Chas. Kopp died at her home near Loveland, Colorado, Tuesday morning of last week. Word was received by relatives here Wednesday, and Mr. Kopp's father and sister, Geo. Kopp and Mrs. Adam Keller, started to Loveland that evening. Before they arrived there a telegram was received here telling of the death of Charley Kopp. The bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Kopp arrived at this station at 1:25 Monday and hearses in waiting proceeded at once to the cemetery. The only services allowed were held at the graves. It is a rare occurrence for a husband and wife to die together, especially while in the prime of life. There was a considerable assemblage of the neighbors from southeast of town, besides the relatives.

They leave four children, all of whom are in the hospital at Loveland, with Spanish Influenza, the disease which caused the death of the parents.

No obituary is available for this issue, but we hope to secure one by next week.

His mother passed away ten years ago. He also leaves a number of near relatives and a host of friends both in this vicinity and around Loveland, where he had resided for several years, having moved there on account of poor health, having had asthma all his life, but had seemingly been as well as common, when he was taken ill with Spanish influenza and pneumonia, and the sudden death of his wife and illness of his four children were more than he was able to bear.

He was converted and joined the Methodist church at Grant Center at the age of 15, and has ever since lived a consistent Christian life, his last moments being spent in prayer for his lonely children. The body was brought back to Clearfield Monday, October 21st, and interment made in the Clearfield Cemetery.
