Darge, Ruth E. (23 NOV 1908 - 1 MAR 1918)
Ruth Eleanore Darge passed away at her home in the town of Worden, Clark County, Wis. on Friday morning, March 1, 1918. Two weeks before she recovered from a severe attack of diphtheria and apparently was getting along nicely when she was taken sick with the complication of diphtheria, which resulted in heart and kidney trouble. All the love and care a physician and an anxious household could devise and apply for her comfort were brought into play, but after a brief struggle, despite the prayers and entreaties of those who loved her, their appeals were over-ruled and she was taken to her home above. Ruth was a bright and winsome child and with her ready smile she won a large number of friends. The beautiful floral offerings also bespoke of the many who loved her.
Deceased was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Darge and was born in Radipan, Blue Earth Co., Minn., on Nov. 23, 1908. The funeral services were held at the Lutheran Church at Reseberg on Sunday afternoon, Rev. Laabs officiating. She leaves to mourn her loss, her mother and father, two brothers, Ralph and Raymond, and many sorrowing relatives and friends. Interment took place at the Reseberg Cemetery.
