Mrs. Barbara Stecker passed away Monday, January 26th, at 1:15 p.m. at the home of her son in law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Meyer, old age complications being the cause of her death.

Mrs. Stecker was born in Sheboygan on May 31, 1866, thus reaching the age of 81 years, seven months and 26 days. She moved onto a farm in the town of Green Grove with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Justis Glenzer, when seven years of age. She was married to Fred Stecker in Green Grove on Nov. 2, 1886.

Surviving are two sons, Fred Stecker of Colby and Wm. Stecker of New Richmond; one daughter, Mrs. Frank (Edna) Meyer of Colby; and one sister, Mrs. Mary Klemm of Ladysmith, Wis.

The deceased was a good Christian, honest in all her dealings, and her congenial disposition won her many friends.
