Peerman, Annie J.
Annie J. Gross Peerman Leadville Carbonate Chronicle March 22, 1915 Death of Mrs. Annie Peerman Mrs. Annie J. Peerman, the wife of V. H. Peerman, a well known employe of the Arkansas Valley smelter and a member of the Elks' lodge, died yesterday at St. Vincent's hospital, following a surgical operation which it was hoped would remedy an ailment of the digestive organs which had troubled Mrs. Peerman for several weeks. She was 32 years old. Mrs. Peerman, whose maiden name was Gross, was born in Hedtstett (?), Germany, on July 4, 1882, and came to America when a child. She had lived in Leadville and Pueblo for a number of years, and had lived in Monterey, Mexico, for sometime when Mr. Peerman was located there as a furnace foreman at the A. S. & R. smelter. It was at the conclusion of his employment at that plant of the company that Mr. and Mrs. Peerman were thought to have been lost through the outbreak of the Mexican revolution. Being forced to seek devious routes and slow methods of travel, the Peermans were lost to their relatives here for several weeks before they reached the border and means of sending communications. Mr. and Mrs. Peerman remained in Pueblo for a time on returning to Colorado, and then came to Leadville when Mr. Peerman was transferred to a position at the A. V. plant. Since then they have lived at 407 West Third street. Surviving Mrs. Peerman besides her husband are three sisters and one brother: Mrs. E. L Brown and A. T. Gross, who reside in the city; Miss Marie Gross, of Pueblo; and Mrs. J. S. Bryant, of Leavenworth, Kansas. The latter were notified yesterday. During her residence in the city, Mrs. Peerman made many friends who held her in high esteem. Her sudden passing yesterday was to them a severe shock. Arrangements were made yesterday to hold funeral services Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the residence and at the Church of the Annunciation at 9:30 o'clock. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle March 22, 1915 From Thursday's Daily Funeral of Mrs. Annie J. Peerman Impressive funeral ceremonies were observed yesterday morning at 9 o'clock for the late Mrs. Annie J. Peerman, the wife of V. Homer Peerman, a well known Elk and employe of the A. V. smelter. At the residence at 407 West Third street at that hour many friends paid their last tributes, and then proceeded to the Church of the Annunciation where the final services were observed. The Rev. Father W. J. O'Malley officiated, assisted by the Annunciation choir, and sang the requiem high mass, later giving a brief address in which he tendered high tribute to Mrs. Peerman, a resident of Leadville for a number of years and during that time a devoted member of the church. Mrs. J. M. Knight, accompanied by Miss Ethel Conley, sang Calvary, the beautiful solo of the services. Mrs. Peerman, during her life in Leadville, had made friends by the score, to whom her death was as the loss of a dear relative. They attended the services in numbers yesterday, and paid their last silent tributes with a wealth of floral offerings. At the conclusion of the ceremonies a long cortege formed in front of the church and followed the hearse to the Elks' Rest where interment took place. The pall bearers were Messrs. Frank Simmons, George Colahan, Clarence O'Neill, Peter Vranesic, Fred Wise and Clarence Snyder. With Mr. Peerman here in his sorrow were Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Gross, Miss Marie Gross and Mrs. H. W. Ashford, all of Pueblo; Mrs. E. L. Brown, a sister of Mrs. Peerman, and Al L. Gross, a brother, of this city, and Mrs. J. S. Bryant, a sister, of Leavenworth, Kansas.
