Sunday’s Obituary – Anna Marie (Karthaeuser) Repsher – Died 23-September-1970

Relationship to me: paternal great-grandmother

I have a couple of undated, unsourced obituaries for Anna K. Repsher, one is most likely from the Newark Star-Ledger and the other from the New Jersey Herald. Both were clippings in Beatrice’s collection which I inherited.
