Elkader Register, Thur., 3 April 1924.
Mrs. J. J. Tayek, nee Marjorie Burlingame, was born in North McGregor, Iowa, on Easter Sunday, April 7th, 1890, and nearly all her life was spent in or near Froelich, Iowa.
She was united in marriage to Jacob J. Tayek by Father Hogan on June 16th, 1908, and to this union three boys were born; Reuben, 15 years of age; Jacob Jr., who died in infancy; and Robert James, now four months of age and for whom no doubt she gave her life.
During her married life she suffered frequent illness and submitted to five serious operations all necessary to save her life. On March 27th she was operated on in St. Luke's hospital, Chicago, and while the operation was extremely serious, for two days strong hopes were held for her recovery. The shock was too much for her, however, and being weakened by the caesarian operation of last November, she passed to her reward at 4:00 a.m. March 29th.
The remains were brought to the home of Anton Tayek at Monona and funeral was held in St. Patrick's church, Rev. Father McNamara delivering a beautiful sermon outlining the Christian life and sterling character of the deceased. The remains were laid at rest in St. Patrick's cemetery.
Perhaps no other woman in this section was better or more favorably known than Mrs. J. J. Tayek and grief over her untimely passing is universal and genuine. Mrs. J. J. Tayek was a life long member of St. Patrick's church and was affiliated in active membership with its organization, an accomplished musician and vocalist, having been for years a student of St. Patrick's conservatory.
Besides her two sons she leaves to mourn her loss; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Burlingame of Froelich; her husband, who with her younger brother Alonzo, form the partnership of Burlingame & Tayek of Froelich; and her brother Ed of the firm of Burlingame & Losch of Elkader.
The casket bearers were: Charles English, Edward Grady, Joseph Geraghty, Thomas Moses, Edw. Lestina and Mike Grady.
The large congregation that assembled at St. Patrick's church in this inclement weather from far and near is true testimony of the high esteem in which the deceased is held in this community.
