Denzin, Theresa (Vircks) (30 Sep. 1890 - 22 Apr. 1926)


Monday afternoon, April 26, 1926 midst hosts of relatives and friends, funeral services were conducted for Mrs. Paul Denzin at the Lutheran Bethlehem Church in Milan. Rev. W. Peihler officiating, Interment was made in the Lutheran Cemetery, North of Milan.

The deceased, Theresa Vircks Denzin, was born on September 30, 1890, at Watertown, Wisconsin. Being baptized into the Lutheran faith, she renewed her baptismal covenant, after thorough instruction in the biblical doctrines, at the time of her confirmation.

In the year of 1908, she entered into holy wedlock with Mr. Paul Denzin, making their home on their farm in the town of Holton. The Lord blessed their union with eleven children, the oldest child preceding the mother in death in infancy. In the later part of March, an infection made it necessary for her to seek medical and surgical aid in the St. Joseph’s Hospital at Marshfield. The able doctors there did all in their power to save the life of this Christian mother. Soon after her entrance into the hospital, she was delivered of an infant child, then an amputation of an arm was made, and from time to time other incisions had to be made in the battle against the ravaging infection. When the strength seemed to fail her, blood transfusions were made in order to uphold her in her brave battle against the disease.

Much did she suffer, yet never did she complain. At all times she held her trust in the Lord, patiently awaiting the time, that help should come to her form on high. The suffering Christ was her comfort in the Lord be done, was her constant prayer. And, according to the gracious will of God, she was delivered from all pain and sorrow on Thursday, April 22, at 7:30 in the evening. Quiet and peaceful was her departure.
