----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 4/10/1930
Raymond Eugene, only child of Mrs. And Mrs. Joseph Zenz, Sr., was born May 5, 1926 at Loyal, Clark County, Wis., and died at St. Joseph's Hospital, Chippewa Falls, March 27, 1930, at the age of 3 years, 10 months and 13 days.
After a short illness he was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital at Chippewa Falls. As medical skill proved of no avail this beautiful little life ebbed slowly away.
Little Billy as he was best known, was a bright active child possessed many lovable traits of character memory will never fade from the hearts of all who knew and loved him.
The funeral services were held Monday morning at St. Balthasar's Catholic Church, Rev. Father Joseph Stenz officiating. Interment was made in the Catholic Cemetery beside the infant brother who preceded him in death May 12, 1929.
Out of this fleeting mortal breath
Out of the valley and shadow of death,
Into the light of the perfect way
Into the freedom of endless day.
He was the Fathers perfect child
Pure and good and undefiled.
We need not look beyond the skies
For Heaven, since it about him lies,
And naught except what is pure and fair
And beautiful can enter there. (Loyal Tribune)
