Funeral services for Mrs. Pauline Gabriel, a former Colbyite, whose death was chronicled last week, were held Thursday morning at nine o’clock from the Dorchester St. Louis Catholic church with Rev. N. E. Kreibich officiating. Internment took place at the Colby cemetery. The pall bearers were George Steinwand of Colby, J. E. Allar, John Plier, Jos. Lang, John Gossl and Jos. Kronschnabl, all of Dorchester, Wis. The deceased had been ill the past two months with heart trouble and other complications and during that time spent two weeks at the Marshfield hospital.

Pauline Trencek was born in Germany, May 2, 1872, the daughter of Peter and Mary Trencek, and was 62 years, one month and fifteen days at time of death. She was married to Anton Gabriel in Germany, June 5, 1892, and thirteen children were born to that union, three children preceding Mrs. Gabriel in death. In 1903 the Gabriels came to the United States, settling first in East Chicago. After living successively near Curtiss and Colby, Mrs. Gabriel moved to Dorchester, where she resided for the past six years until this winter and spring when she has been living with her children.

Mrs. Gabriel was a faithful member of the St. Louis Catholic church and of the Christian Mothers Society. To the many friends who knew her she was always a kind hearted, pleasant neighbor and it is with regret that they note her passing. She will be sorely missed by her loved ones and only He who guides our destinies can comfort them in this sad hour.

Mrs. Gabriel leaves five daughters, Mrs. Joe Younker, Mrs. Frank Stoiber, and Mrs. John Stoiber, all of Dorchester, and Misses Rose and Agnes Gabriel of Chicago, and five sons, Nick, Missoula, Mont., Frank, Ely, Minn., Tony, Milwaukee, and August and Joseph, Dorchester, Wis. She also leaves twelve grandchildren: Joe, Leo and Rita Younker, Alvin, Clarence, Adeline, Robert and Dorothy Stoiber, all of Dorchester, Marilyn and Jerome Gabriel, Missoula, Mont., and Richard and Harold Gabriel, Milwaukee, and two sisters and two brothers in Germany.

Out of town relatives attending the services were Mr. and Mrs. George Steinwand, Mrs. Alois Roder, Mrs. R. Hein, Mr. and Mrs. John Kralcik and family, all of Colby, and Mrs. Alois Gabriel, of Wausau. All of the children, with the exception of Nick, were here for the services.
