Sterzinger, Elsie A. (31 Aug 1891 - 14 OCT 1915)

Elsie A., beloved wife of Mike Sterzinger, died at her home in the town of Colby (Clark Co., Wis.), at 12:15 Thursday morning, Oct. 14th, 1915, of tuberculosis, aged 24 years, 1 month and 14 days, after an illness covering the past three years. The dread disease baffled the most strenuous efforts of the best physicians and tender care and nursing of her loved ones.

Elsie A. Reil was born to Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Reil in the town of Colby, Aug. 31st, 1891, and resided at home with her parents until her marriage to Mike Sterzinger, which took place on June 8th, 1910. She was a kind and loving wife and mother, and highly respected by her neighbors and all who knew her, who join in expressions of deepest sympathy.

She leaves to mourn her death, her husband, one son, her parents, one sister, Mrs. Phil W. Justman of Gilman, and two brothers, George and John of Colby.

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