The Daily Death List & Anna L. Wolf

The Detroit Free Press, March 8, 1910
Ah- the daily death list. We all make it despite our better intentions towards immortality. But to have died at the hospital of illness rather than ignominiously in the poorhouse or the insane asylum is some solace. Not much though when you're merely 40-years-old and coughing your lungs to a fatal exhaustion.

So it was for Anna L. Wolf at the bottom of a column of fonts in a newspaper spread. She was the wife of John L. Wolf and the daughter of August Schultz and Paulina Teier. She's buried at Woodmere Cemetery in Detroit.
