In 1877 she went to Porter county, Ind. And in 1878 she met and married Ernest Stibbe. Their first home was established in Keener township, Jasper county, where they resided until 1886, when they moved to Union township, near Parr. They lived there until her husband's death in 1929, after which she made her home with her son Oscar, on the home place for 8 years. The infirmities of old age coming upon her, she went to the home of her daughter, Augusta Norcutt, where with the exception of a few months, she remained until Oct. 13, 1944, when she quietly went to her home on high, at the age of 82 years, 6 months, and 29 days.
She is survived by three children, Emma Griffith of Kouts; Oscar, of Parr, and Augusta Norcutt of Lowell; one granddaughter, Marie Knoblich and three great grandchildren, Max, Donald and Norman Knoblich of Gary. One daughter, Bertha Adeline, passed away in infancy.
To know her was to love her, always doing for others, and trying to lighten the burdens of those near and around her.
Funeral services were held at Wright's chapel, Rensselaer, Rev. Edmond Worley officiating. Burial was held at Westom cemetery in that city, in charge of Weaver and Son.
