Roytek, Catherine (2 NOV 1889 - 12 APR 1935)

Mrs. John Roytek passed away at her home here last Friday evening of sarcoma of the right lung and kidney, from which she had suffered for several months past. She had reached the age of 45 years, 5 months and 12 days.

Catherine Kiel Roytek was born Nov. 2, 1889, at Wheeling, W. Va. She moved with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Kiel, to a farm in the town of Withee, Clark Co., Wis., and on Sept. 4th, 1904, was united in marriage to John Roytek, and since that time has resided in the village. This union was blessed with two children, Agnes Crammer of Chicago, who preceded her in death July 10, 1933, and Mrs. Orville McGinnis (Clara) who survives. Besides her husband, other relatives left to mourn are her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Kiel of Gilman, Wis., three sisters, Mrs. Leo Zwolinski and Mrs. Geo. Strzok, Milwaukee, Mrs. Anna Hoffman, Mizpah, Mont., three brothers, Joe Kiel, Mizpah, Mont., John Kiel, Milwaukee, and Stanley Kiel, Gilman.

To her the struggle and burden bearing of earth are ended, and we confidently trust that like one who awakes from a trouble dream she has awakened to see life’s endless morning break, and know herself at home with all the vast throng of loved ones, missed from earth, safe about her. Her home instincts were strong here in this fevered world of disappointment. Her affection for friends and kindred was tender and abiding.

Funeral services were held Tuesday morning at St. Hedwig’s Church, Father F.A. Kulig officiating, and interment taking place in the nearby cemetery. Pallbearers were Victor Zielinski, Ig. Przybylski, Frank P. Neiman, Frank Anyzewski, Chas. Deniszkiewicz and John Zajaczkowski.
