Mrs. Ubbing Dead
Death Came To Her Early Yesterday Morning. The death of Mrs. Mary Ubbing occurred early yesterday morning at her home, Eleventh and Hampshire streets, after a long illness. She had been sick since May, and while her death was not unexpected, the news that she has gone will be a sad shock to her wide circle of friends. She was the mother of Messrs. Henry and George Giesing and John Ubbing, and was a kindly, thoughtful woman, who was beloved by all who knew her.  She was 69 years of age, having been born in Ankum, Hanover, Germany, February 2, 1828.  She came to America in 1850 and to Quincy the following Spring, since which time this city has been her home. In 1851 she married Mr. Barney Giesing, who died in 1855. In 1858 she married Mr. Edward Ubbing, who died in 1872. She was a member of St. Boniface Church and was always an earnest, consistent Christian. Notice of funeral later.
