Ackerman, Cecil Joseph (19 July 1909 - 2 April 1935)

Cecil Joseph Ackerman, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Ackerman, was born in the Town of Pine Valley, July 19, 1909. He passed away the 2nd day of April, 1935, having reached the age of 25 years, eight months and 14 days. He was baptized, instructed and confirmed in the Lutheran faith. He attended public school at the Hillside school and after receiving his diploma, helped his parents on the farm.

The past two years he spent with his aunt, Mrs. Henry Garvin, of Cathay, N. D.; helping her on her wheat ranch. The 16th day of July 1934, he graduated from the National Radio institute, having received his diploma, as an authorized radio technician. The past winter he spent much of his time at that work, being very much interested in work along that line.

The deceased was taken ill the 17th day of March with an infection of the throat which developed into acute rheumatic fever. The best of care and medical attention was secured but all efforts to save his life failed; he passed away the 2nd day of April at 4:45 p.m. He leaves to mourn his departure his parents, one brother, Arthur, at home and one sister, Irma, Mrs. Wm Solberger, of Columbia, one sister, Frances, preceded him in death 12 years ago. He leaves a host of friends who mourn his early departure.

All through his illness a strong religious faith sustained and comforted him and he spent much time in through and prayer, seeming to know that he was to be called away and asking his Heavenly father to take him to paradise.

Those from away who attended the funeral were: C. B. Garvin of St. Paul; Mrs. Chas. Puphal of Merrill, Wis.; Mr. and Mrs. Albert Manegal of Marshfield; Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Sherman of Merrillan, Wis.; also friends from Racine and Eau Claire.

The funeral was held at the Pine Valley Lutheran Church Saturday afternoon, April 6, with Rev. Buth officiating. Interment was made in the Neillsville Cemetery.

Beloved, "It is well!"

God’s ways are always right, and perfect love is o’er them all through far about our sight.

Beloved, "It is well!"

Though deep and sore the smart, the hand that wounds knows how to bind, and heal the broken heart.

Beloved, "It is well!"

The pat that Jesus trod though rough and straight and dark it be, leads home to Heaven and God.
