NEWSPAPER UNKNOWN, 14 September 1956
Obituary of LYDIA ESTHER RADKE
MISS LYDIA RADKE
Lydia Esther, daughter of Edward and Anna (Karst) Radke was born April 21, 1912 at Milberger, Russell County, Kansas. On the evening of September 14, 1956 she was called to her Father's house of many mansions by her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She lived her life at the home of her parents who did everything possible for the afflictions she suffered for 44 years, 4 months and 24 days.

She was baptized in the Lutheran Church at Milberger and at an early age she suffered convulsions and other sickness which caused her to be an invalid for the rest of her life.

She will be remembered and treasured in loving memory by: her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Radke, Milberger, Kansas; one brother, Herman Radke, Milberger, one sister, Martha (Mrs. Theo Nuss), Hoisington, Kansas; two nieces, Mrs. Elmer Bitter (Eileen), Mrs. Angeline Duetsch, both of Hoisington, Kansas; one nephew, Harlan Radke, Milberger. And many other close relatives and friends."
