Had  Been  Seriously  Ill  Only
Since  Last  Saturday  Morning.
          Mrs. Mary Kopp,  one of this city's most highly respected residents, died rather unexpectedly at her home, 63 Elizabeth street, at ten-thirty o'clock this morning, aged sixty-four years.  Mrs. Kopp had been in failing health for some time on account of kidney troubles, but did not take to her bed till Saturday.  It was not regarded till this morning that her condition was serious and her death cae as a shock to her friends and relatives.
          She is survived by two daughters and one son.  Mrs. Joseph Waldenmaier and  Otto Kopp, of Indianapolis, and  Mrs. Charles Davitt,  of this city.  Three children had preceded her in death, one of them being the late  Mrs. William Chesser.  She also leaves two sisters,  Mrs. Catherine Stulp, of Harrison, O., and  Mrs. William Vierling,  of east Broadway.
          Mrs. Kopp was the widow of the late  Joseph Kopp,  who died about twenty years ago.  He was a soldier in the civil war, having served in Company K of the Eighty-third Regiment of Indiana Volunteers.
          Mrs. Kopp was a zealous member of the St. Joseph Catholic church and was loved by all who knew her.  The funeral services will be held at the church at nine o'clock Wednesday morning the Rev. Fr. A. Kaelin officiating and the interment will be made in the St. Joseph cemetery in charge of Stewart & Fix.
          The casket will be open to friends at the house from four till nine o'clock Tuesday evening and from seven o'clock Wednesday morning till the hour for the funeral.
