Ellie Koehler Lemp Grave, Bellefontaine Cemetery

Caspar Koehler, the father of Ellie, the second wife of William Lemp, Jr., was a brewer, and her first husband, Rudolph Limberg, was the president of the Columbia Brewing Co. Their son, Edward, died in 1939, a year and a half before Ellie. Despite being married to William Jr. when he committed suicide, she is not buried in the Lemp Mausoleum.

While William Lemp Jr. had already divorced Lillian Handlan Lemp, she in fact received permission from her brother-in-law Edwin after her death to be interred next to her son, William Lemp III, in the Lemp Mausoleum on the other side of Bellefontaine Cemetery. Her ex-husband, William Jr. lies on the other side of their son.
