Hannah Hupp, seventh child of Aaron and Margaret Anna (Redlingshafer)
Hupp, is buried with three of her siblings in the south half of Salem Cemetery
Lot No. 38 (Lot. No. 17 under what apparently was the original lot numbering
system). Only two of 12 Hupp siblings married, and so as time passed and
the brothers and sisters died they filled the original family lot and overflowed
onto this one.
Hannah Hupp, daughter of Aaron and Margaret Ann Hupp, was born March 10,
1870, in Benton township, Lucas county, and passed away at the home in
Chariton on March 18, 1957, at the age of 87 years and 8 days.
Except for the last four years, when she, her sister and brother moved to
Chariton, Hannah had spent her entire life on the farm which had been the
family home for 94 years. She received her education at the old Myers
school, and had attended the Mt. Carmel and Salem churches until her
Hannah was a kind, thoughtful Christian woman, always putting others
before herself. She lovingly cared for her surviving sister, Sarah,
until about a month ago, when coronary thrombosis made it impossible
for her to continue. Then both Hannah and Sarah were cared for in
the home by the brother, Otto. She was given all that loving hands
and medical aid could do but to no avail.
She was preceded in death by her parents, five brothers and four
sisters. She is survived by her sister, Sarah; brother Otto, and by a host
of relatives and friends.
Funeral services were held at the Miley Chapel Wednesday,
March 20, at 2 p.m., conducted by the Rev. A.E. Beals.
Interment was in the Salem cemetery.
