Kessel, Lydia J. (5 DEC 1882 - 20 Nov 1912)

Mrs. Loos and family of this city (Greenwood, Clark County, Wis.), received the sad news last week of the death of their daughter and sister, who had been suffering at Excelsior Springs, Mo. For some time past with Bright’s disease.

Lydia Johana Loos was born at Potters Mills, Calumet Co., Wis., Dec. 5, 1882. A greater part of her life was spent here and at Port Hope, Mich., attending the public schools and accomplishing the art of a splendid musician, having a fine soprano voice. She was married to John Kessel Sept. 17, 1908 and moved to Rapid City, S.D., and later to Riceville, Iowa, where a little son was born to them on Oct. 20.

In August symptoms of Bright’s disease appeared and in spite of the best medical aid that could be obtained she passed away at Excelsior Springs, Mo. Nov. 20th, 1912.

Deceased was of a very kindly disposition and made many warm friends wherever she went. She leaves to mourn her sudden departure, a mother, two sisters, two brothers, a husband and little child.

The funeral was held at the home of Mrs. Loos Saturday afternoon, Rev. Otto Saewert officiating. Interment was made in Greenwood Cemetery.
