Carl Schaal  --  1954

Carl Andrew Schaal, son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Schaal, was born on a homestead 12 miles north of Bethune on June 26, 1906. He was baptized on Sept. 2, 1906, in Immanuel's Lutheran church of which he was a life-long member. At the age of 11, Carl moved with his parents to a farm five miles west and 11 miles north of Burlington where he lived till the time of his death.

He attended school thru the eighth grade at the place called Yale school north of Bethune. After instruction in the tenets of the Lutheran faith, he was confirmed in Immanuel's Lutheran church on June 6, 1920. On May 24, 1942, he was united in marriage at Immanuel's Lutheran church with Martha Schlichenmaver. To this union were born , two children: Marie Ann, age 10, and Carl Paul, age 4. The couple engaged in fanning on the same farm upon which he had been for many years.

At the age of 21 he was stricken with inflammatory rheumatism which confined him to his bed for several months and resulted in a weakened heart and impaired health. During the years following he was stricken with double pneumonia, each time so violently that everyone despaired of his life. Five weeks before his death he was again taken to the hospital where his condition, agitated by his many illnesses in life, wore him gradually away. It was God's will that he be called to heavenly rest on May 26, 1954, having reached the age of 47 years and 11 months.

Left to mourn his demise are his wife Martha his two children, Marie and Carl; his parents. Mr. & Mrs. Samuel Schaal; his brothers Jacob Schaal, John Schaal, Sam Schaal of Burlington, Fred Schaal of Bethune, and George Schaal of Seattle, Wash.; his brother Rudolf, preceded him in death: his sisters, Mrs. Helen Knodel of Bethune,  Mrs. Dorothea Schlichenmaver and Mrs. Louise Holmes of Burlington: uncles, aunts. cousins, and a host of relatives and friends also remain to revere his memory.

Carl was a man who loved his God and served Him by being a fine church member, a loving and considerate husband and father, an obedient son and a valued neighbor. He was always ready to give a helping hand. May God bless his memory to us.

Funeral services were held Monday, May 31, at the Immanuel Lutheran church in the Settlement, with the pastor, Rev. L. C. Johnson officiating.
