Schraufnagel, Mrs. Joseph (? - SEP 1916)
The death of Mrs. Joseph Schraufnagel at her home at Peeksville Tuesday, from the effects of giving birth to twin sons the Tuesday previous is the occasion of deep sorrow and anguish for her beloved relatives and friends. For the creation of two little souls she sacrificed her life. He condition last Sunday, while very weak, was not considered serious, but a turn for the worse came and in her weakened condition she was unable to gain strength and rapidly declined to the end.
The funeral service was held at the Catholic Church, of which she was a devout member, on Friday forenoon. Rev. Father Dickopf preached the sermon and the remains were laid at rest in Mt. Hope Cemetery. The floral offerings were many and beautiful, fragrant symbols of the love and sympathy of cherished friends.
About thirty-five relatives of the family from southern parts of the state were present to attend the last sad rites. The respect and kindly esteem in which the departed was held could be no more fittingly shown than by the large concourse that gathered to pay their last homage to the dead.
Mrs. Schraufnagel was a woman whose friendship it was a pleasure to have, and she will be greatly missed by her large circle of friends and a place that will never again be filled remains a cherished memory in the hearts of those who were near and dear to her. Hers was a God-fearing life, lead in a true Christian spirit of humility and self-denial, and with conscientious fortitude she made the sacrifices that only a mother love can make.
The neighborhood sympathizes with the bereaved husband and children and other relatives in their great loss. (Glidden Enterprise)
