Trinkner, Mary Sylvia* (1871 - 14 June 1953)  

Mrs. John Trinkner, 82, a former resident of the Town of Levis, died Sunday afternoon, June 14, at the Oak Forest Sanitarium at Onalaska, where she had been for the past two months. She had been ill for several years. 

Funeral services were conducted Wednesday, June 17, at 9:00 a.m. from St. Mary’s Catholic Church with Fr. Peter Leketas officiating.  Burial was in St. Mary’s Cemetery.   

Mrs. Trinkner was born at De Pere, Wis., in 1871, although her exact birth date is unknown, as are the names of her parents. 

She was married to John Trinkner at De Pere and they lived on a farm in the Town of Levis until her husband’s death.  She then went to La Crosse to make her home at St. Joseph’s home for the aged. 

Mrs. Trinkner was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. 

One brother, Lewis Smit of De Pere and two sisters, Mrs. John VanVonderin, De Pere, and Mrs. Frank Dhooga of Ashland, survive her.  

A general Rosary service was said Tuesday evening at 9:00 p.m. at the Bergemann Funeral Home. 

* I got her given name from her husband’s obituary.
