A lot of the clippings seem to involve the
families of Robert and Mathilda (Busch) Marquardt and
their in-laws. Later on, the Kupsky family will creep in,
leading Ken to believe his Grandmother Cecelia Marquardt Kupsky,
daughter of Robert and Matilda, kept up the book from whomever
started it. His dad says some of the notes are her writing,

YOUNG LADY LAID
LEONA MARQUARDT FUNERAL HELD SATURDAY AFTERNOON FEBRUARY 7.
Miss Leona Marquardt,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Marquardt died at the home
of her parents Tuesday, February third, following an illness
of several days of Typhoid Fever. Aged eighteen years, nine
months and nineteen days.
She was born May fourteenth 1906 in Bonduel. Here she
was reared and educated. She first attended the Public
School and later the Christian Day School of Bonduel, where
she was confirmed in the Spring of 1920 by the late Rev.
Martin Mueller. After confirmation she entered the local
Junior High School, and graduated in June 1922 She was a
kind, loving daughter, and her devotion to the family circle
had no limit. Her future was full of promise, and we dare
not ask why she was taken in her prime, unless, as flowers
are picked before the frost finds them that we may not
witness their decay. It is sad, indeed, to see a young lady
of her qualities taken so unexpectedly. Nothing but the
thought of the loving hand that has taken her can reconcile
those who loved her to her absence. While she has gone from
the scene, the conflicts, the sorrows and pleasures of life,
she will live in the hearts of those who loved her best. May
God comfort them.
The funeral was held Saturday afternoon from the St.
Paul's Lutheran Church in Bonduel. Rev. Walter Plischke
officiated, who paid a most beautiful and fitting tribute to
