Her obituary was published in the Independence Bulletin-Journal on April 12, 1900 at Iowa.11 Her obituary stated:
Catherine Leytze answered the summons of the angel of death on last Saturday at 4:30 p.m.. For two weeks she had been confined to her room with heart failure. While the case was regarded by her family and friends as critical, yet the strong hope was father to the thought that recovery was possible. On Friday, at midnight a recurring attack proved that recovery was impossible and when told that the end was near the deceased bravely replied, "I am not afraid to die". She retained consciousness to the last, and one by one she called for her family and intimate friends. Mrs. Leytze possessed a noble, upright character, each day of her life was put to some good use, and a resume of her years shows more excellent accomplishments than enter into the lives of a score of average women. Her club life was confined to those that stood for principle and benevolence. In the Poor relief society, the Women's Relief corps and the Political Equality club, she was an honored and treasured member. In the philanthropic societies she was always ready with voice and purse to relieve the suffering of others. She was a strong sympathizer and a steadfast worker for the suffrage movement, and these societies will keenly feel the loss of so prominent a member. Mrs. Leytze lived a life full of good deeds. Twenty years ago the death of her husband left her with the cares and responsibilities of a large family of growing children and an incumbered estate. The character of her children, now grown to manhood and womanhood, testifies in strongest terms of the high principles which she early instilled into their hears and minds. To them the mother represented the highest type of womanhood, and to her they always referred for counsel and advice. Her excellent business, ability and judgement is shown by the manner in which she not only lifted the indebtedness off a large estate, but has constantly added to its worth. This accumulation was not through narrow lines or close methods, but with justice and high business principles, backed by a generous spirit and a sympathetic heart.
Catherine Raithel was born in bavaria, Germany, July 29, 1835. When six years of age she came with her parents to America. Her home was in Missouri until she was 15 years old. Two years were spent in Dubuque, and she then removed to this city, which has since been her home. She was married in this city October 28, 1856, to Adolph Leytze, whose death occurred July 26, 1879. Twelve children were born to them. Frank died in infancy in 1868. Eleven are living:
