Annie Mae, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Buskohl, was born April 22, 1926, and passed away Wednesday, March 18, 1931, at about 12 o'clock after a lingering illness of nearly five weeks. She gradually grew weaker and developed double pneumonia and suffered until the end came at the age of 4 years, 10 months and 24 days.
She was always bright and happy and was loved by all those who knew her.
The funeral took place Friday, Mar. 20, at one o'clock at the house and later at the Colfax Presbyterian church with Rev. J. E. Drake officiating. Burial was in the cemetery adjoining the church.
She leaves to mourn her departure her parents, two brothers and two sisters, Jennie, Harvey, Johnnie and Esther Leona.
Those attending the funeral from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. John Halfwassen, Waterloo; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Stahl and son Jurgen, and Harold Bohn, Austin, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Will Diekman, Clarksville.
The pallbearers were Ruth Harberts, Alma Heronimus, Marion and Lorraine Meyer.
Her voice so sweet is hushed and stilled,
She rests in peace above.
Her place on earth can ne'er be filled,
Her life was one of love.
She rests in peace so we rejoice,
Though tears are in our eyes;
We seem to hear her Angel voice
Singing in Paradise.
