Mabel Minnie Anna, daughter of Ben and Alice Bulman, was born Dec. 27, 1915 and died March 15, 1919, age 3 years, 2 mos. and 15 days. Mabel was an affectionate child, and loved by all her knew her. She was the pet and idol of her grand parents. The father and all the friends deeply feel her loss.
We had a little treasure once,
She was our joy and pride.
We loved her, oh ! perhaps too well,
For soon she slept and died
All is dark within our dwelling,
Lonely are our hearts today,
For the one we loved so dearly,
Has forever passed away
But she is not lost but is forever in in [sic] Jesus care.
Funeral was held Wednesday at 2 p.m., four young ladies acted as pall bearers, Flora Kumpf, Helga Sadler, Elsie Martin and Florence Lane, burial in English Bench cemetery, Rev. R A Padden preaching a very appropriate sermon.
