Family History Writing Challenge Day 17

Lillian and Joseph 1944
Lillian (Hungler) Kubler was 73 when her husband Joseph died in 1969. She continued to live on her own the rest of her life, though she did ultimately move from their house into an apartment later on. Of their children, 3 of the 4 were living in the Cincinnati area with their families, so she had plenty of company. Lillian died at the age of 83 on 19 February 1979.

Ethel 1914
Joseph and Lillian's oldest child Ethel was born on 5 September 1913 in Cincinnati. A couple weeks after her 26th birthday, she married William Kenan at St. William Church. William was a Marine in WWI, and 42 years of age when he married Ethel. From their marriage two sons were born.

William died on 27 December 1960 at the age of 63. Ethel later married Frederick Buhrmann. Unfortunately she was stricken with bone cancer and died at home on 5 July 1969, just 6 days after her father passed. Her last words were, "Daddy's calling me."

Note: Lillian's headstone has the incorrect year of birth. She was born in 1895.
