Johanna Wilhelme Stephan (1863–1926)

The death occurred at Boonah on December 31 of a well-known resident of the district in the person of Mrs. C. [Johanna] Stephan, widow of the late Mr. Carl Stephan, of Templin, at the age of 63. Mrs. Stephan had been in indifferent health for some time past, but her death came unexpectedly as a result of a stroke. The late Mrs. Stephan leaves a family of 22 children, 101 grandchildren, and 1 greatgrandchild to mourn her loss. The funeral took place to the Dugandan Lutheran Cemetery, where the service at the graveside was performed by the Rev. Pastor Hillar. The funeral was very largely attended by friends and relations.
