Funeral of Mrs. Pein

The funeral of Mrs. August Pein, which was held recently from St.Evangelical Church, Plattsmouth, Neb, was attended by an immense concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives. The service was conducted by Rev. J.H. Steger, pastor of the church. The members of the Degree of Honor and Woodmen Circle, with the drill team of the local Grove of the Woodmen Circle, acted as an escort for the body from the home to the church, and thence to the cemetery, where it was laid to rest in beautiful Oak Hill.

The members of the Woodmen Circle and Degree of Honor assembled at their lodge rooms, and together marched in a body to the home of their departed member. The Nebraska Guards, Woodmen Circle, led by their captain, took the lead, being followed by the officers of the Woodmen Circle Grove, and the members of both orders, the procession numbering fully 200 members, with Mrs, Joseph Droege and Mrs. Anton Trilety as marshalls of the day. The ceremony of the Woodmen Circle was very impressive, and as the casket was carried from the house and church, every member stood in line with bowed head. At the cemetery the captain, Mrs. Manspeaker, and guards, with officers, gathered around the grave and the mourners sang "Nearer, My God To Thee," followed with prayer by Chaplain Sovereign Schluntz. Then one by one they passed the grave, dropping a flower.

Mrs. Emma B. Manchester, Supreme Guardian, came from Oamaha to be present at the funeral and gave comforting words to the grief-stricken husband and children.
