Obit-Mary L. Engel, widow of the late John H. Engel, died August 26, 1935, in Pensacola, Florida, at the home of her son Harold. She was born in Amboy, Ill., April 9, 1860, being the eldest daughter of Jacob and Caroline Klein. She was married September 1, 1880, and made her home in Franklin Grove, Ill., until 1901, at which time she and her family moved to Chicago, Ill. In 1920, the family moved to Valparaiso, Florida.
Surviving are one son, Harold J. Engel; one grandson, John C. Engel; one granddaughter Marion L. Engel all of Pensacola, Florida; and three sisters-Mrs. Clara Reinboth, Amboy, Ill., Mrs. Ida Derr, Chicago, Ill; and Mrs. George Armstrong, Park Ridge, Ill.
The remains were brought to Franklin Grove, where services were held in the Methodist church Sunday afternoon by the Rev. L.E. Winter, with interment in the Franklin Grove Cemetery.
"Strange, is it not, that of the myriads who,
Before us passed the Door of Darkness through,
Not one returns to tell us of the Road;
Which to discover, we must travel too."
The casket-bearers were: Car Gaver, Ted Gaver, of St. Paul, Minn.; George Armstong of Park Ridge, Ill.; Harry Derr of Chicago, Ill.; and Junior Klein of Amboy, Ill.; all of whom are nephews of the deceased; and Nelson Blocher of Chicago, Ill.
