Three Tired Mothers at Rest
Mrs. G. L. Pape
This community was shocked Saturday evening on learning that Mrs. G. L. Pape had breathed her last at 5:30 o’clock. Although it was known she had been having a siege of pneumonia, it was supposed the crisis had been safely passed and, indeed it had, but in her weakened condition she easily succumbed to a heart attack while apparently enjoying a restful sleep.
Elizabeth Kinne Pape was born, lived all her life, (about sixty years) and died in the old home on Center street, a record probably unequalled in the whole state. She was a woman who enjoyed the confidence of all who knew her and had every quality that goes to make a true hearted friend. In her home she was a most devoted wife and mother, and although having more than her share of life’s trials and sorrows to combat, she bore up under her burden with true Christian fortitude and a ready resignation to the will of God. She was the only daughter of the late Samuel H. and Mary J. Kinne, early pioneers of Lansing, a member of Martha Washington Chapter O.E.S., and leaves to mourn her loss the husband and one daughter, Mrs. H. G. Gerkey, of LaCrosse, who was with her in her last illness.
Funeral from the house yesterday afternoon, at 2 o’clock, Rev. Krebs officiating, and burial in Oak Hill cemetery beside her parents, two brothers and a daughter and son, who preceded her to the Great Beyond.
