Walker, Kathleen M. (11 MAR 1941 - 31 JUL 1941)

Kathleen Mae, the five month old baby of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Walker, died of suffocation in her crib at their home at 10:00 o’clock Thursday morning. The little one had pulled the rubber blanket, under which she was sleeping, over her head. Her plight was discovered too late.

Thus over a happy home the shadow of a little grave has fallen; and as mother has said, it is wonderful how long a shadow a little grave can throw.

Kathleen was born March 11, 1941. She had one sister, Penelope Carrol, 2 ½ years old. Her loss is deeply mourned by parents, and grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John G. Bogumill and Mr. and Mrs. W.I. Walker, of Davenport, Iowa.

Services were conducted by Rev. A.M. Muckerheide, Friday afternoon, Aug. 1, at two o’clock. Flower girls were Patty and Nancy Dolister, Geraldine Polnaszek and Karlyne Stoker. The baby was laid to rest in St. Bernard’s Cemetery.
