LULU KRUGGEL, 1894 - 1916
Death of Young Lady. Miss Lulu Kruggel of Decoria Succumbs after Long Siege of Illness.
The death of Miss Lulu Kruggel at the home of her sister, Mrs. Ernest Thrun, of Decoria, on Tuesday, May 9th, cast a spell of gloom over that entire community, where she had spent nearly all her life and made many friends. Death came as a relief to the patient sufferer after nearly a year of illness with cancer. Funeral services were held at the Decoria German Lutheran church, conducted by Rev. Gerkensmier, and the remains were laid to rest in the Lutheran Cemetery near by, six girl friends of the deceased acting as pall bearers.
Miss Kruggel was born in Mapleton township October 15, 1894. The father, Henry Kruggel, and three, sisters and two brothers, all living in Decoria, survive her. They are Miss Ella, Mrs. John Lortz, Mrs. Ernest Thrun, Edward and Ernest. A number of relatives and friends from this vicinity attended the funeral.
Miss Kruggel was an exemplary young lady whose short life was entirely devoted to pleasing others and her unselfish and kindly ways will long be remembered by those who knew and loved her. Throughout her illness she was ever cheerful and hopeful, lightening the burden of care as much as possible for those about her, till the pain-racked body was called to rest.
