Obituary
After a lingering illness, Mrs. Lena Juliana Poschke Guterschank, passed from this life at her home, Monday afternoon. She was born in Freblen, Pommerania, Germany, January 9th 1853. She was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran church. In 1874 she was united in marriage to John Guterschank. This union was blessed with one daughter who died at the age of three years. The couple came to this country in 1891 where they lived on a farm in Fish Creek. A number of years ago they moved to Scotia where they have resided since.
Those left to mourn her departure are her husband, one sister, Mrs. M. Wald of this town, two brothers, August Poschke of Stapleton, Nebr. and Albert Poschke who resides in Germany. She was also a cousin of Gene Radgen of Fish Creek. Funeral services were held from the Lutheran church yesterday afternoon, preceded by prayer at the home, Rev. W. L. Ernstmeyer officiating. Rev. Ernstmeyer delivered a German and English address. Miss Colia Heyden rendered the beautiful song “We Findet Die Seele die Heimat der Ruhe.” Interment was in the Mount Hope Cemetery.
Her brother August Poschke of Stapleton and a niece, Mrs. E. J. Wille of Laurel were here for the services.
I fall asleep in Jesus' wounds,
Where pardon for my sins abounds;
Yea Jesus' blood and righteousness
My jewels are, my glorious dress;
Wherein before my God I'll stand,
When I shall reach the heavenly land.
