[Transcriber's note: Minnie Israelske was my great-grandmother. She died 20 Jan 1954. Her maiden name was Weisenberger. The obituary has a few errors: she had four surviving daughters, not three as typed, although all four are listed. Her son Fred Israelske, my grandfather, was by this time using the name Fred Irwin. Her son Charles Israelske was by this time using the name Charles Israel.]
