|Birth: ||Mar. 11, 1905|
|Death: ||Jan. 26, 1919|
Helen E. Wolcott, daughter of J.D. and Carrie Wolcott, died Sunday morning, Jan. 26, of influenza-pneumonia at the home of D. D. Burke where she was staying while attending school.
She and her teacher were ill at the same time in the Burke home and though everything was done that loving parents and friends could do, Helen was called away to a brighter home.
Helen was born at Newtonia, March 11, 1905, and died at the age of 13 years, 10 months and 15 days.
Besides her parents, she leaves two younger sisters and two small brothers, many relatives and friends who will miss her sunny presence.
Funeral services were held at the Odd Fellows Cemetery at Newtonia on Monday afternoon where the body was laid to rest by the side of her grandmother, at Helen's request.
"She never was a child to us, We never held her being's key; We could not teach her holy things, She was Christ's own in purity. O, smite us gently, gently, God! Teach us to bend and kiss the rod, and Perfect grow through brief."
Obit taken from the personal scrapbook of Hattie Boston LeMaster, her aunt.
