Lindekugel, Mary D. (14 JAN 1853 - 30 NOV 1932)
The deceased, Mary Dorothy Sillack, was born at Langsow, Brandenburg, Prussia Germany on the 14th day of January, 1853. In early infancy she was baptized in the name of the Triune God and then later instructed in the fundamental doctrines of the Christian Religion and confirmed in the Ev. Luth. Church to which church she remained a faithful member, having been a member in good standing and the local congregation for some in the thirty years. On the 18th day of November, 1878 she was married to Wm. Lindekugel, to which union were born four children, of which however one son preceded the parents to eternity in infancy. On the first of May, 1888, they left their native land and came to Clark County; where in the following spring they bought a wooded 80 acres in the town of Loyal, which they developed into a farm. In 1917 they retired to the Village of Loyal where they resided up to about 5 weeks ago when they found it necessary to move in with their son Frank and family because of the infirmity of old age. A week ago last Sunday they were all getting ready to go to church when the deceased was suddenly taken with a stroke of paralysis, however leaving her conscious. The first few days she seemed to rally but on Wednesday evening near six P. M. she was called out of time into a blessed eternity as we have all reason to believe. The deceased lived a long and useful life attaining the age of 79 years, 10 months and 9 days. She now leaves to mourn her departure, her sorrowing husband William Lindekugel of the Town of Loyal, three children; Frank Lindekugel of the town of Loyal; Mrs. Martha Trachte, of Arpin; and Wm. Lindekugel, Jr. of the town of Loyal; also 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild; besides numerous other relatives and a host of friends who have our hearts sympathy in their bereavement.
Funeral services were held from the Lutheran Church at Loyal, at 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon. Interment was made in the Union Cemetery, Rev. H. F. Leschensky officiating.
The flower girls were Nora Trachte, Elsie Klumb, Florence Luther and Lyla Klumb.
The pall bearers were John Knoll, Frank Stange, August Ehlerts, Alfred Oestreich, Henry Lemke and Fred Strege.
