Pagel, Mary (31 JAN 1892 - 21 Jul 1916)

After an illness extending over a period of nearly four weeks, Mrs. William Pagel died of puerperal fever at her home in the town of Reseberg, Clark County, Wis., on Friday, July 21, 1916, aged 24 years, 5 months and 22 days. Mary Koch was born at Pearl City, Ill., and was united in marriage with Wm. Pagel on June 9, 1915. All the care and love that skilled physicians and an anxious household could devise and apply for her comfort and assistance were brought into play, bu the fiat of Him who rules our incomings and outgoings had been issued and after a brief struggle despite prayers and entreaties of all who knew and loved her, their appeals were overruled and the sufferer's spirit took flight to that home the Christian believes is the fulfillment of life everlasting. Her life was a rare jewel, her spirit as gold refined in the fire ready for heaven. The funeral took place on Sunday last from the Lutheran Church nearby, Rev. Schwertfeger of Withee officiating, interment following in the Reseberg Sylvan Cemetery. She leaves to mourn her untimely death her husband and babe four weeks old, her parents, four sisters and six brothers.
