Sterzinger, Magdalen (15 APR 1917 - 17 JUN 1919)

Died, at her home in this city (Colby, Wis.) June 17, 1919, little Magdalen Sterzinger, aged two years, two months and two days, of convulsions after an illness of but one day's duration. Burial services were held last Friday from St. Mary's Catholic Church, Rev. H. Lachnit officiating. Interment was made in Colby St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery.

Besides her parents, Mr. and Mrs. George J. Sterzinger, she is also survived by three brothers and one sister.

Over a happy home the shadow of a little grave has fallen, and as another has said, it is wonderful how long a shadow a little grave can throw.

This beautiful baby life was so precious, so fraught with blessing to her parents that she seemed a flower of paradise permitted to bloom for a brief season by their side, then recalled to its nature skies, leaving the earth road for them dark and lonely indeed.
