Summary

Florence Witmeyer appeared in Milwaukee newspapers in 1923 as a result of her close association with my grandfather, E. Ray Tompkins, a real estate developer who murdered his wife, Ora B. Tompkins, on Dec. 6 of that year. Ms. Witmeyer was regarded as the "other woman" in the affair, though she had no idea my grandfather would murder his wife. Ray Tompkins spent the rest of his life in Central State Hospital and Florence resumed teaching in Chicago for many years. She lived quietly and never married.
