From The Wolbach Messenger, Wolbach, Nebraska, Thursday, March 26, 1942, transcribed by Linda Berney:


Burial services for Ida Bartunek, former Wolbach resident, were held Saturday afternoon with Rev. H. Anderson in charge. The body was viewed at the Lutheran church for a short time before being taken to Hillside cemetery for interment. McIntyre's had charge of the burial services.

Mrs. Bartunek died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Irvin F. Gillen in Lincoln early Thursday. A funeral service was held in a Lincoln chapel at 10 o'clock Saturday morning.

Mrs. Bartunek was born Ida Nelson and was 65 years at the time of her death. As a girl she attended Midway school, and later taught school. She married Antone Bartunek about 1900. For about five years they operated a store in Wolbach, moving to Ord about 190[?]. While in Ord Mrs. Bartunek was active in social circles and was past president of the Ord Womens Club. The family removed to Lincoln in 1919, where she conducted a real estate business.

Surviving beside Mrs. Gillen is a son Leo, also of Lincoln. A son Edward died about 25 years ago.

Pallbearers were Andrew Christensen, Mike Fitzsimmons, Dr. A. Holm, Ernest Rother, D. H. Marco, and E. L. Johnson.
