Josefa Rosalia Huber

Josefa Rosalia ‘Rosalie’ Huber was born in about 1859 in Kerns, Obwalden, Switzerland to Felix Huber and Franziska Zurmuhle. She never married. She worked as an interpreter for the hotel Luzernerhof in Sarnen, Obwalden, Switzerland. She was also a governess based on a second hand account. She died on December 18th, 1921 in Sarnen, Obwalden, Switzerland.

From a descendant of Alois Huber (brother of Rosalie) still living in Switzerland: “The sister of Alois Huber, Josefa Rosalia, was a governess, among other duties, at the hotel Luzernerhof (at that time the Luzernerhof and the Swiss court were still together). I have found postcards of her in Egypt and suppose that she worked for the hotel keeper, Durrer, and had traveled around the world. She had property and this was sent to America. I have found the payment documents.  I think the money to Alois was to allow him to travel back to Switzerland. At the end of Alois’ life, he had written one more letter stating that the old people are not welcome in America and that his wife and children should send him money, so that he could come back to Switzerland. I have also found this letter. They sent him no money under the pretext that they could not read the address (however, I could decipher the address …).”

Her will left 5,000 Francs to Miss Phillipine von Rotz living in Sarnen. She was entitlied to use it after her wealth had dissipated. After her death, the residual money went to charity. All the clothes, furniture and jewelry went to her brother Alois’ children in Switzerland: Theresia Morger, Wilhelm Huber, and Leo Huber. Theresia received: the yellow sofa, fauteuil, 3 chairs, embroidered Pliant, 2 sofa cushions, closed with mirror, oval table, big mirror with gold frame, 2 big etagere, little etagere, flower stand, both pictures of parents with dark frame. Ms. Morger may have all clothes, undergarments, jewelry, 1 1/2 dozen towels with my name, one big pillow as well as remaining down blankets. Wilhelm Huber was left: bed with 2 pillows, drawer chest with headpiece, night table, square fir table, 3 chairs and wash set. Leo Huber was left: Divan, square hardwood table, table in the living room, drawer chest in living room, 3 lacquered chairs in the kitchen, mirror with black frame, and underbed. All three siblings divided the: Tableaux, tablecloths, bed linens, curtains, kitchen appliances, suitcases, crates and chests/boxes. Her wish was to not have any of this stuff sold except between the children. She also stated that if her brother returned to Switzerland from America, he would be able to use the bedroom set,a sofa and the pictures of parents as long as he lived, and then would go to his children. She also stated that Miss Phillippine von Rotz would be able to use the kitchen appliances, sitzbath, night chair or half round table if she needed them. They would then go to the Alois’ children on her death. The big living room rug was to be given to Chapel Kaegiswill for the steps in from of the altar.

When she died, her estate was divided among the following, Miss Phillipine Von Rotz 5,000 francs, Alois Huber, 6,432.31 francs, William Huber, 6,432.31 francs, Arnold Huber, 6,432.31 francs, and Katharina Bernhardt’s children, 6,432.31 francs.

Here are pictures of Rosalie:
