Johan G. Woche

The East Liverpool Morning Tribune, Monday, November 2, 1903

At 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon the death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ferd Oschmann, 329 Walnut Street and took from the midst of friends the spirit of Mr. Gottlieb Woche, the father of Mrs. Oschmann. The deceased was 76 years old and expired after a short illness brought on by a severe cold which finally resulted in hemorrhages.

Mr. Woche was born in Asch, Bohemia, and came to this country in 1866 and took up his residence at Pittsburgh, PA, where he was employed for 28 years in the round house of the Pennsylvania Company. He retired from his employment some years ago and took up his residence at the home of his son-in-law, Ferd Oschmann, where he has since resided.

The deceased is survived by the following sons and daughters: Mrs. M. E. Schade, formerly of Pittsburgh, but now of this city; Mrs. Ferd Oschmann, of this city; Mr. J. N. Woche, of Swissdale, PA, all of whom were at the bedside when death came.

Funeral services will be held at the Oschmann home this evening at 7:30 o'clock, the services being conducted by Rev. J. G. Reinartz, of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church. The remains will be shipped from this city to Pittsburgh, PA on the noon train Tuesday where interment will be made in Minersville Cemetery.
