The above obituary is for my Great Grandmother Theresa Nebgen Homrich. She was born on 10 Sep 1870 in Byron Center, Michigan. Her twin sister was Josephine Nebgen. Theresa married Joseph Peter Nebgen on 3 Feb 1891 in North Dorr, Michigan. Soon after their marriage, they moved to Chicago, where they raised 3 daughters and a son. They belonged to St. Mathias Parish in Chicago.
Her husband, Peter Nebgen died on 26 Feb 1944 in Chicago. Ten months later, Theresa went to Los Angeles to live with her youngest daughter Theresa Nebgen Sherlock, who was living with her husband Charles Sherlock in the Hollywood Hills. Theresa Nebgen died while in Los Angeles on 7 May 1945. They shipped her body back to Chicago for the funeral (since most of the family lived in Chicago) and for burial at St. Boniface Cemetery.
