Knight, Ethel (24 Sept 1892 - 1 Apr 1934)


Mrs. Raymond Kneight of Riverside, passed away at her home about 10 o’clock Easter Sunday morning. She had been ill for three weeks with flu which developed into double pneumonia and with heart complication was the cause of her death.

Ethel Kurtz was born at Neenah, September 24, 1892, and came to Riverside with her parents in 1900. She graduated from the Colby High School, and on May 22, 1919, became the bride of Raymond Kneight of Waupaca. To this union was born one son, Robert, now 13, who with the husband, Raymond Kneight, the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kurtz, and one sister, Mrs. Stanley Horn of Cornwall on the Hudson, survive her.

Funeral services were held at the home at 1:30 and at the Presbyterian Church at 2:00 p. m., the Rev. L. C. Smith officiating. Two duets "There Is No Friend Like Jesus" and "Lights of Home", were sung by Miss Jessie Merrill and Mrs. A. J. Folstad. Mrs. Wm. Berger acted as pianist.

The body was taken to the Lulloff Undertaking Parlors and on Thursday was taken to Neenah where a service will be held at the Oakhill Cemetery Chapel, conducted by Rev. L. C. Smith, and interment made in the Oakhill Cemetery.

Among those from away who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. John Hircher, Mr. and Mrs. S. E. Kurtz, Mr. and Mrs. John Hoeper and Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hoeper and son, all of Neenah; Will Hoeper, Mrs. Sorley, Arnie Hoeper, Mrs. Hopkins and Mrs. John Hoeper all of Owen, and Mrs. John Kneight of Waupaca.

The esteem and respect in which Mrs. Kneight was held by those who knew her expressed in a poem written by a friend.

"The Lord will give,

The Lord will take away,

‘Tis not for us to question or to say.

Yet we will thank our God

Throughout the coming years,

Because He gives us memory

To brighten dimming tears"

The Tribune and friends join in extending sincere sympathy to the bereaved relatives.
