Schraufnagel, Lena (5 Aug. 1888 - 19 Nov. 1931)

Mrs. Frank Schraufnagel died last Thursday, November 19, 1931, after an illness of three months, consumption being the cause of her departure to the distant shore. Funeral services were held at the St. Mary’s Catholic church Monday, November 23, Rev. H. Lachnit officiating, and internment was made in the Colby Catholic cemetery. The pall bearers were Joe Kunze, Frank Gierl, Frank Apfelbeck, Leo Apfelbeck, Ben Apfelbeck and Bert Ohlinger. The flower girls were Elva Schmidt, Grace Schmidt, Veronica Ohlinger and Agnes Schmidt.

The deceased, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Schilling, was born in Sherwood on August 5th, 1888, thus reaching the age of forty-three years, three months and fourteen days. She was married to Frank Schraufnagel in Colby on May 31, 1910, which union was blessed by six children, all at home and are Emil, Alphonse, Martha, Mary, Cletus and Arthur. Her departure is also mourned by her husband, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Schilling, and the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. Henry Van Dreel, Colby; Mrs. John Sazama, Colby; Jake Schilling, Colby; John Schilling, Edgar; Joe Schilling, Colby; Andrew Schilling, Colby; Mrs. Ervin Schmidt, of Milwaukee; Mrs. Henry Bosner, Milwaukee; Mrs. Elwynn Acton, Milwaukee.

The out of town people here for the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Ervin Schmidt, Mrs. Henry Bosmer and daughter, Mrs. Elwynn Acton, all of Milwaukee; Mrs. Ida Keller Thoys and two sons, Henry and Joe, and John Schilling of Edgar, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. Wink of Thorp, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Schraufnagel and daughter Jean, of Pittsville, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Schraufnagel and daughter, Lydia, and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Schraufnagel of Glidden, Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Misslich and children and Mrs. Hubert Schraufnagel of Keysville, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. John Schraufnagel and son, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Schraufnagel, Mr. and Mrs. John Wander, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Hartaller and son, Mrs. Mike Feucht and Mary Feucht, all of LeRoy, Wis., George Seifold and sisters, Agnes and Emma Seifold of Antigo, Wis.

Mrs. Schraufnagel was of an affectionate disposition, bright and winning in her ways, so that friendship’s circle to her was a large one. Indeed, it may be said of her that none knew her but to like her. She was a faithful member of her church and just as faithful in doing her duty as a Christian; patient, loving and self-sacrificing. All the care and love that skilled physicians and an anxious household could devise and apply were brought into play, but the command of Him who rules our destinies had been issued and her spirit took flight to the home of fulfillment of the life everlasting.
