Timmler, Agnes (5 DEC 1903 - 31 JUL 1918)
Agnes Timmler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Timmler, met death by accident at their home in Pine Valley, north of Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. The exact facts are not known as Mr. and Mrs. Timmler and an older son were at work some distance from the house. It seems however, that their little son about eight years old took the shot gun and ran out thinking he would shoot a dog. Mr. Timmler had put a shell in the gun for that purpose and for the first time in his life forgot to take out the shell when he put the gun away. Some strange dogs had been troubling about the place and the little boy, having heard his father speak about shooting them or scaring them away, got the gun down, thinking he could do this. Just how the gun came to be discharged no one is able to tell.
Agnes Norma Timmler was born at Neillsville Dec. 5, 1903, died July 31, 1918, aged 14 years, 7 months and 26 days. She was a girl of lovely disposition, an industrious helper in the home, a bright and faithful student in school; she received Christian baptism when a child and was constant in her attendance at the Congregational Sunday school and an eager student of the Bible. She completed the first year in high school last year with credit to herself. She was much loved by the members of her class.
Her untimely death has brought sorrow to the hearts of those at home, a large circle of friends among the young people of this community.
The funeral was held at the Reformed Church last Saturday, Rev. D. Grether, the pastor, and Rev. G.W. Longenecker officiating.
