CAUSES OF DEATH
born August 23, 1888, in Newark, New Jersey
died December 25, 1954, in Newark, New Jersey - age 66 years.
Father: Carl Rittershofer (1852-)
Mother: Hattie (1861-)
Spouse: Charles Greuter (1881-1953)
Cause of death: Myocardial Failure
Although her death certificate states the direct cause of death was Intestinal Obstruction, Sophie, as she was known by the family, suffered from acute Myocardial Failure due to antecedent coronary heart disease. Like her husband one year before, Sophie died of a heart attack.
Charles and Sophie had six adult children and many grandchildren at the time of her death, on Christmas Day. As sad as this was for a Christian family to endure, it became even sadder when one realizes that Charles died one year before, also on Christmas Day.
Charles and Sophie are buried in Hollywood Memorial Park in Union, NJ.
