Funeral services were held at 1:30 at the Lulloff Funeral Home and at 2:00 o’clock at Zion Lutheran church, Rev. Wm. Christian officiating, and internment was made in St. Paul’s Cemetery, Green Grove. Miss Jeanne Tesmer sang "Jesus Christ, My Sure Defense" and "I Know That My Redeemer Lives."

Mrs. Mandel, the former Cecelia Kademan, was born on August 15, 1879, in Cleveland county. She moved to the town of Green Grove with her parents when two years old. After her marriage on June 24, 1899, to Ernst Mandel, they resided on his farm in Green Grove for several years and then moved to the town of Colby where Mr. Mandel operated a cheese factory for 30 years. Mr. Mandel was the inventor of the Mandel agitator, a cheesemaking device which he patented and later sold. He died in August, 1950.
