Zenker, Hulda (c. 1893 - 06 June 1908)

The fifteen year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Zenker died last Saturday evening at 9 o’clock. She was sick only a few hours as she was subjected to epileptic fits and died during one of those terrible painful spells, all medical assistance being useless. She leaves a father, a mother, two brothers and two sisters to mourn her untimely death. The funeral occurred Tuesday afternoon from the Evangelical Lutheran church. Rev. Witschonkee of Green Grove delivered an eloquent funeral sermon.

"God touched him with His finger, and he slept," the poet wrote. So May we say of this dear life - "God touched her with His finger, and she slept," but not until a beautiful life was lived, a noble example of patience, fidelity to truth and faith were given. Not until visions of a heavenly life, in Christ Jesus, had cheered and illumined the valley of the shadow. And now, that she sleeps, memory takes up the harp of life, and smiting the strings, finds that her virtues melt into music. So it ever is, when a life is nobly and divinely lived.
