Counsell, Fay (4 JUL 1920 - 24 MAY 1924)

Fay Counsell, little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Counsell of the town of Grant, Clark County, Wis., died at the Marshfield Hospital, Saturday, May 24, 1924. She was born July 4, 1920, and was a bright winsome child. A few months ago she seemed to be in poor health and prompt efforts were made to secure help for her, but her disease, which proved to be enlargement of the liver and spleen was beyond medical help.

The funeral will be held at the home at 1:30 Wednesday afternoon, Rev. W. T. Scott coming from Durand to officiate.

Fay Elaine Counsell was born July 4, 1920 and died at 4:30 p.m., May 24, 1924, at the Marshfield Hospital, where she had received every care and attention that love and medical skill could bestow upon her. She was the younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Counsell of Pleasant Ridge, Clark County. The family consisting of parents, one sister, Ila, together with a large circle of immediate relatives, including four grandparents, are stricken with grief.

Little Fay was possessed of a peculiarly sweet and gentle disposition, which endeared her not only to the family but to everyone that came within the radius of her smile. Though she was loaned to us for such a short space of time, as we count the years, who can say that the influence of her little life shall not go on through the years, leading us into the same childlike faith and trust in God and man, "Behold, a little child shall lead them."

The sympathies of the entire community go to the family in their grief and loneliness.
