Engeldinger, Pauline (6 Feb. 1863 - 25 Dec. 1929)
Mrs. George Engeldinger, whose death was chronicled in this paper last week, died December 25th, 1929, at 6:30 in the evening of diabetes after a lingering illness of twelve years.
She was sixty-six years, ten months and nineteen days old. She was born Feb. 6th, 1863, in Poland and came to this country when nine years old. On October 4th, 1883, she was married to George Engeldinger at Medford, Wisconsin, to which union three children were born, one daughter, Frances, preceding her in death.
Funeral services were held at St. Mary’s church on Dec. 28th, at 9:30, Rev. Lachnit officiating. She was laid at rest in the Catholic cemetery.
Those to mourn her death are her husband, one son, John, one daughter, Mary. Also one sister, Mrs. Wm. Helminski, of Kenosha and one brother, John Knaak, of Edgar.
She was one of the old pioneers, coming to this locality fifty years ago when it was all wilderness. She was a very faithful member of her church and her Christian life was beautiful from its beginning to its close. She was a true wife, mother, friend and neighbor, and her devotion to those she loved would make a bright chapter in any life.

Helminski and daughter of Kenosha; Mr. and Mrs. John Knaak and children of Edgar; Mr. and Mrs. Ben Dalski and Mr. and Mrs. Joe Dalski and children of Marathon City; Mr. and Mrs. Math Kesler of Clintonville; Mr. Ben Collins of Merrill; Miss Fannie Kugle of Menomonie; Mr. and Mrs. Emil Kettle of Ladysmith; Mr. Eugene Majeske and children and Mrs. Walter Dern of Wausau; Mrs. Peter Lepak of Chicago; Mr. John, Lawrence and George Kaiser of Stratford.
