Mary Hoffman was born in Aule, Germany, September 19, 1841. In 1865 she was married to Henry Bomhoff, and in 1879 came to America and settled at Lincoln, Nebraska. In 1893 they came to Oklahoma and settled near Okarche. She died on Sunday, December 28, 1919, aged 78 years 3 months and 9 days. Her husband died a number of years ago. Three children were born to them, two sons Dick and John, and one daughter, Dora. Two children survive her, her daughter, Mrs Dora Huls, having died in 1915. For some years past, Mrs Bomhoff made her home with her sons, and died at the home of her son John.

The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon, December 30, from the Lutheran Church. A large number of old friends attended.


We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to our friends and neighbors for their kindness and untiring assistance during the illness, death and burial of our beloved mother.
Dick Bomhoff, John Bomhoff
