Lex, Elva I. (5 FEB 1905 - 2 SEP 1916)
Died, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nick Lex, in this city, Saturday morning, Sept. 2nd, 1916, of diphtheria, Elva Irene, aged 11 years, 7 months and 3 days.
Elva, as she was familiarly known, was born at Crevitz, Wis., Feb. 5th, 1905. She came with her parents to this city when a very small child, and grew to young girlhood in this vicinity. She had a host of friends among her childhood acquaintances, and was a great favorite with the older ones.
She was always light-hearted and happy, and contributed much to the comfort and happiness of her playmates. At home she was a great help to her parents in assuming the care of her little sisters and brother, and her untimely departure from this earth leaves a void that no one can fill. She leaves to mourn her death, besides scores of friends, her father and mother, two sisters and one brothers, who have the sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement.
