Wilhelmina Becker

According to her death certificate, available at Family Search Labs, Mrs. Wilhelmina Becker, a widow, was born in Germany on June 6, 1833, and she died on October 1, 1911 in Lucas County, Ohio. Wilhelmina was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Kappen.
Wilhelmina Becker was buried at Oak Harbor Union Cemetery. Her tombstone is in the shape of a wooden chair, upon which is a pillow, and a scroll. On the pillow is inscribed the word MOTHER. One hundred years after the death of Wilhelmina Becker, her tombstone is still in wonderful condition. Mrs. Becker surely must have been loved by her family.
