There is also a sheet of paper in files that contains the words to two songs sung at her funeral. The songs are in German. My mother-in-law, Mrs. Elma Dumler Brack, wrote on the funeral card that the sermon text was Acts 14, 15 and 16. The men's quartet sang "Nearer My God To Thee" in German and the choir sang. They also sang "Himrnelan nur Himmeloan" for the congregation song at the cemetery they sang "Jesu Geh Voran".
