Edward Stahlecker --  1962

    Finial rites for Edward Stahlecker, 74, of Burlington were held Wednesday, June 6, at 2 p.m. at the Immanuel Lutheran Church with Pastor Herbert J. Schauer officiating.
    Mr. Stahlecker passed away June 2 at the St. Joseph's Hospital in Denver where he had undergone surgery.
   A floral service was conducted Wednesday morning at 11 at the Hendricks Mortuary.  Pall bearers were Robert Stahlecker, William Stahlecker, Ralph Stahlecker, Pete Schlichenmayer, George Wiedman and Harold Weisshaar.  Interment was in the Fairview Cemetery in Burlington.
    Edward  Stahlecker, son of Martin and Katherine Juengling Stahlecker was born Nov. 4, 1887, at Tripp, S. D. He was baptized as a child.
    In 1893 he moved with his family to the Settlement north of Bethune.  Here the Stahleckers became active members, of Immanuel Lutheran Church.  Church and home cooperated to give Mr. Stahlecker his basic Christian training.  As a youth he was confirmed in the Lutheran faith in Immanuel Lutheran Church.
    On Sept. 30, 1917, he was united in marriage with Mrs. Margaret Adolf nee Weisshaar.  To this union were born three sons and three daughters.
     Mr. Stahlecker was engaged in farming. In 1956 he retired from the farm and, moved to Burlington.  Ties with his home church were so strong that even after retiring to Burlington he remained a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church. He served his church many ways, among them for nearly 40 years he served his church as organist and for 20 years as janitor. Mr. Stahlecker was admitted to the Burlington hospital May 19.  On May 21 he was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Denver where he submitted to surgery.  For a time it appeared that he would recover, but suddenly his strength began to wane.  He passed away June 2 at 6 p-m. at the age of 74 years, 6 months and 2 days.
