Obituary ....

Mrs. W. C. Krueger of Gordonville Very Low Today

Mrs. W. C. Krueger, wife of the Lutheran minister of Gordonville, was reported very low at 2 o'clock this afternoon with pnuemonia, and all hopes were given up for her living throughout the day. At 10 o'clock Monday night she started sinking and members of the family were called to her bedside, she telling them at that time that her end was near. This afternoon relatives were again summoned to her.

Mrs. Krueger suffered a spell of influenza about ten weeks ago, being the first person in Gordonville to contract the disease. She recovered quickly at that time, however, and when members of the P. C. Hager family contracted the disease several weeks ago, she volunteered to nurse them. She remained at her duty there constantly until last Monday, when she had to give up, and as she left the Hager home she said she had pnuemonia.

A doctor was called immediately upon her arrival home, but he found she was not suffering with pnuemonia at the time, the disease not developing until the latter part of the week.

Mrs. Krueger is 27 years old and is a sister of Martin Lorberg of Cape Girardeau and Ollie and Leo Lorberg of near Gordonville. Her mother, Mrs. Frederick Lorberg, also lives in Gordonville.

Mrs. Lydia Krueger, wife of Rev. W. C. Krueger of Gordonville, died at 12:15 o'clock this morning of pnuemonia, following an illness lasting nine days.

Mrs. Krueger had suffered a speil of influenza about ten weeks ago, but recovered from that and later went to the home of P. C. Hager to nurse several members of his family through the same sickness. While on duty at the Hager home she suffered a relapse through her untiring work and developed pnuemonia, which soon claimed her.

When she became ill she realized from the beginning that she would never recover, telling her husband and other relatives the day she went to bed that she had pnuemonia and was going to die. Relatives tried to convince her that she was wrong, but she repeatedly informed them she could not recover, and on Monday nightshe sent out word to her brothers to come to her bedside at once if they wanted to see her alive again. All of them responded and she then started sinking, the last spark of life passing out shortly after midnight.

Mrs. Krueger was 27 years, four months, and 12 days old and had spent her entire life at Gordonville. She was the daughter of the late Frederick Lorberg and Mrs. Anna Lorberg, the mother being left to mourn her death. She also leaves her husband, Rev. Krueger, pastor of the Lutheran church of Gordonville, and three brothers, Martin of Cape Girardeau and Ollie and Leo of Gordonville.

The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, services to be at the Gordonville Lutheran church with Rev. Langehennig of Jackson officiating. Burial will take place in the Gordonville cemetery.
