Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - Mrs. Louise Gramann
Louise, wife of Christopher Gramann of Wayside, died on Monday, aged 66 years. Mrs. Gramann had been afflicted with cancer but her death was
caused by asthma and heart disease. She had been in her usual good health until the Friday before her death and she died sitting in her chair.
Mrs. Gramann was born in Germany. She came to this country when she was seventeen years of age and made her home with the Gugel family, who
have a summer home at Oakhurst. About 43 years ago she married Christopher Gramann and they afterward settled at Wayside. Mr. Bramman is
seventy years old and is in the best of health. Both Mr. and Mrs. Gramann have been members of the Wayside Methodist church ever since it
was built and they always took a very active interest in church work. They are two of the oldest members of the church. Mrs. Gramann had
a class in Sunday-school which she taught as long as her health permitted. She will be greatly missed in the community both as a friend
and neighbor and a church worker.
Mrs. Gramann leaves five children, all of whom are married. They are George F. Gramann of Red Bank; Henry and William Gramann and Annie,
wife of George Herbert, of Oakhurst; and Amelia, wife of George Dangler of Middletown township. She leaves also an adopted son, William
Tinkler, who works at Allenhurst, and a sister, who lives in Germany.
The funeral was held at the house at one o'clock to-day and at half-past one o'clock at the Wayside Methodist church. The service was in
charge of Rev. J. W. Morris and the body was buried in the church burying ground.
