Death of Mrs. Julius Saggue

The deceased Mrs. Julius Saggue was born the 15th of November 1856 at Holstein, Germany. Very soon after she was baptized and made by baptism a child of God. When old enough she visited the school till fourteen years of age and then was confirmed in our holy Evangelical Lutheran faith. In the year 1881 she came with her parents to this country. When sixteen years old she was married in the bonds of holy matrimony to Julius Saggue who now mourns her early death. Mrs. Saggue gave birth to eight children six of whom are living. Her suffering was of a long duration. Last winter she had considerable trouble with her heart, but seemed to recover. At the beginning of October, she became sick with pleurisy and from that time was continually confined to her bed. Two weeks ago she longed to get the Lord's supper when she confessed her sin and then received the sacrament with implicit faith. A few days after she gave birth to a boy and little hope was then entertained as to her recovery. She knew however that her end was near and wished therefore that her little baby be buried by her side, the child lived twenty-three hours. December 12th [1902], at eleven o'clock she died peacefully without any pain. Her suffering was great, her relief a blessing. She leaves to mourn her loss a husband, six children, father, mother and four brothers. She was thirty-six years and twenty-seven days old. The remains were laid to rest in Union cemetery, Ellsworth township.
