THE WESTERN STAR, 11 January 1907
Obituary of LENA SICKLER
Mrs. Chas. B. Sickler Dead.

At 11 p.m. on Monday, January 2, 1907, occurred the death of Mrs. Lena Sickler, wife of Chas. B. Sickler of Irwin tp. Her death produced an unusual sadness among all the neighbors and many friends all over the county. The existence of scarlet fever in the home prevented many relatives and friends from being present during the sickness and at the funeral and rendering the assistance and giving the comfort which they so much desired to do.

On December 19, Mrs. Sickler gave birth to a daughter. Three days later scarlet fever symptoms developed, accompanied by a septic condition. She
became convalescent from the scarlet fever, but on last Friday evening pneumonia developed and this was the immediate cause of her death. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery on Tuesday afternoon. At the time of her death, Mrs. Sickler was about 32 years of age.

Lena Dippink and Chas. B. Sickler were married on June 3, 1903, Mrs. Sickler was a kind and faithful wife and was much esteemed by all who knew her. Her untimely death leaves a saddened home, and to the bereft and heart broken husband and the infant daughter, the sympathy of all is extended.
