Sebold, Edith J. (28 DEC 1906 - 9 JAN 1929)

Miss Edith Jean Sebold passed away at Mercy Hospital, Oshkosh, Wis. Wednesday evening, Jan. 9th, at 6:30 o’clock following a short illness. Death was due to a complication of diseases following an attack of influenza.

The deceased was born at Dorchester, Clark County, Wis., Dec. 28, 1906. She was a graduate of St. Louis Catholic School, also of our local high school. After which she attended the Oshkosh State Teacher’s College at Oshkosh, Wis.

She was a member of the January graduating class of that college and had a position in view starting with the February semester. She was specializing in intermediate department work and has been teaching in the training department of the college the past four months. She was held in high esteem by her pupils as well as by the members of her graduating class and the faculty of the school.

Edith, or better known by her friends as "Honey" was just such a girl as the name implied, sweet and pleasant and sunny of disposition, she was everybody’s friend and was dearly loved by her schoolmates in Dorchester where she spent her life until she went to Oshkosh to go to school. She was to have had a very fine position in a neighboring city beginning this semester and seemingly a long and useful life ahead. Why one so young and full of life should be called away we know not, but we can safely trust an all wise Providence, who ever doeth all things well. May He who has promised to comfort those who mourn, comfort the dear ones whose hearts have been left so desolate by the loss of the dear girl, who came to earth, loved and cheered all by her presence for a few short years and then slipped away into that larger, fuller life where sin and sorrow never come.

The survivors are her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. W. Sebold of Dorchester; five sisters: Mrs. Herman Behrens of Iron Mountain, Mich., Mrs. Guy J. Crane of Oshkosh; Mrs. Glen A. Lincoln, also of Oshkosh; Miss Helen Sebold of Dorchester; and Sister Theodine of Franciscan order ? Convent, La Crosse, Wis.; and four brothers, Joseph, Louis, , Max and Herman Sebold, all of Dorchester.

The remains were brought here Friday noon. Funeral services were held at St. Louis Catholic church at 9:30 Saturday morning, Rev. Pitzenberger officiating, and John Regele, Roman Wuest, Norbert Wuest, Ignatz Sauter, Edward Warner, and Arnold Sebold acting as pallbearers.

The people from out of town attending the services included Mr. Guy J. Crane and Mrs. Glen A. Lincoln, both of Oshkosh, Herman Behrens of Iron Mountains, Mich., Roman Schuman of Mayville, Victor Schuman of Campbellsport, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. F. Sebold and Mrs. Ben Sebold of Marshfield, and Miss Marie Kronschnabl of Antigo.
