Emma C. Frech

Emma was born in Fort Wayne on February 15, 1872. Her parents were Heinrich Frech and Christina Roth. She married Carl Julius Rudolph Kabisch (Rudy) on April 20, 1892 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne. They had five children. She was a member of Carrie Nation’s Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU). She died on February 24, 1940 in Decatur, Indiana at her daughter, Edna’s home. She was buried in Lindenwood Cemetery in Fort Wayne. In this photo she is with her children, Edna and Clarence, so it must have been taken about 1910.
