Miss Meta Baumgart died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Baumgart in this city (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.), at 9 o’clock Thursday evening, April 20th, 1916, of pneumonia, after an illness of two weeks, aged 18 years, 6 months and 17 days.

Meta E. Baumgart was born in this city Oct. 3rd, 1898, and Colby had been her home up to the time of her death. She was a bright and sweet tempered young lady and held in high esteem by all of her friends, both old and young. Six of her young lady friends acted as pallbearers and six as flower girls at the funeral.

She is survived by her parents, three sisters and one brother, Lena (Mrs. Max Prange) of Fond du Lac; Anna (Mrs. Karl Kollermeier) of Portland, Oregon; Otto and Lucy living at home, all of whom were her to attend the funeral.

The funeral was held from Zion Lutheran Church, Wednesday afternoon, Rev. C. C. Hartenstein officiating, and was largely attended by sympathizing friends and neighbors.
