Lenling, Margaret (18 AUG 1857 - 22 MAR 1931)

Margaret Lenling, nee Schmaltz was born at Elsmore, Fond du Lac County, Wis., on the 18th day of August 1857. In early infancy she was baptized in the name of the Triune God and then later instructed and confirmed. On the 15th day of November 1881 she was united in marriage to William Lenling, who in 1923 preceded her into eternity. In 1890 the family moved to Clark County, where for 33 years they resided in the Village of Loyal. In the spring of 1928 the deceased broke up house keeping and has since made her home with her daughter Mrs. August Lindner at Mosinee. She has been a member of good standing in the local Trinity Ev. Luth. Church for a period of some 30 years.

For the last 9 months the deceased had suffered from Gangrene which can be ascribed as a cause of her death. On Sunday the early hour of 5:30 A. M. she was quietly called from this vale of tears to a better world as we have all reason to hope, having attained the age of 73 years, 7 months and 4 days.

Also 15 grand children and 8 great grand children, besides numerous other relatives and a host of friends who have our hearts sympathy in their bereavement.

During the many years that she was a resident of this community she had the love and esteem of every one, devoted to her home circle, a loving wife and mother who gave unsparingly of her time for their happiness. During her invalid months she had the most faithful loving care of her daughters.
