Clara, beloved wife of Frank A. Sterzinger, died at her home in the town of Colby, Clark Co., Wis., at 10:30 Saturday forenoon, Aug. 24th, 1912, of tuberculosis, aged 23 years, 5 months and 4 days. For about one year she had been in poor health with the dread disease which resisted the most strenuous efforts of the best physicians and tender care and nursing of her loved ones.

Clara Anna Reil was born to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Reil in the town of Colby, March 20th, 1889, and resided at her home until her marriage to Frank A. Sterzinger, which took place on June 1st, 1909. She was always bright and cheerful, carrying sunshine with her wherever she went, and her many friends express their deepest sympathy to the bereaved ones.

She leaves to mourn her early death, her husband, daughter Adeline, two years old, her parents, two sisters, Mrs. Phil Justman of Gilman, Mrs. Mike Sterzinger of Colby, and two brothers, George and John, both of Colby.

The funeral services were held at St. Mary’s Church, Tuesday forenoon, and were conducted by Rev. H.J. Artman. The attendance was large and the floral offerings were very choice and abundant.

The relatives from out of town who were here to attend the funeral were, Mr. and Mrs. Phil W. Justman of Gilman; Mr. and Mrs. James A. Robinson of Chicago; Mrs. Jos. Chart and daughter Dora of West Allis.
