Kalk, Alma (19 JAN 1885 - 20 JAN 1912)

Death is sad. Sad when it comes to the little one in the cradle, though unconscious of sorrow or pain; sad when it comes to the aged one bowed down with the weight of years, and doubly so when it claims for its own one just in the bloom of youth.

Saturday morning, Jan. 20, 1912, Mrs. Richard Kalk, formerly, Alma Meyers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Meyers of Green Grove, Clark Co., Wis., died of consumption after being sick for a period of four months.

She was born Jan. 19, 1885 and being of the age of twenty-seven years and one day at the time of her death. On Oct. 28, 1909, she was married to Richard Kalk, a prosperous farmer of Howards Grove, Sheboygan County. She was born and reared in this community and counted many friends among her acquaintances.

She was laid to rest in St. Paul’s Cemetery at Sheboygan, in the presence of people from all over the country, who came to pay their last tribute of love and respect to the dead.

Her death is very sad, being only a bride of a little over two years, in the bloom of youth and everything to live for. She was a woman of excellent character, a lovable disposition and beloved by all who made her acquaintance. She leaves to mourn her death her young husband, her father, mother, seven sisters and one brother who are stricken with grief at her death.
