The burial took place in the Zuendel cemetery on German Hill, Sunday afternoon. Rev. R. A. Zahniser conducted the funeral services, the body being followed to its last resting place by a very large concourse of relatives and friends.
Mrs. Youngk was an exemplary Christian woman, greatly esteemed by all who knew her, and to the bereaved husband and friends the sympathy of the community goes out in sincere sorrow.
