HOLY CROSS II OBITUARIES [ SE ]


BLANCHE SEDLACEK Last Sunday evening death came to the home of Louis Sedlachek(sic) and took away Mrs. Louis Sedlachek.

She was married but four months ago. She was 22 years old and well known. The news of her death came as a terrible shock to her friends and relatives. She is survived by her husband, father and mother and brothers Edward and William who will sadly miss her. Her remains had to be taken away in the evening which made the sorrow harder to bear. She was laid to rest in the Mishicott cemetery. Mr. Sedlachek was unable to attend for he is also suffering with the smallpox and mumps. The stricken family have the deepest sympathy of their friends. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Friday, March 24, 1916 P.4

I'll remember you when I'm at a drive through And I'm handed all my food I'll remember the time you told the lady to smile Because it would put everyone else in a better mood. I'll remember you when I am driving And when I beep my horn I'll remember the times when people pulled out in front of you And how they felt your scorn. I'll remember you when I am working All those times you came to visit me And I'll remember your red lipstick And how you always managed to get it on your teeth. I'll remember you when I am at the fair And on the tilt-o-whirl I'll remember when you rode with me Those screams of yours to stop the ride could make anyone's hair curl. I'll remember you when my birds chirp You always loved to hear them sing I'll remember you when I see Canadian geese For they were one of your favorite things. I'll think of you when my phone rings Wishing I could hear your voice I'll remember all the times I agreed to go to church with you And how you would rejoice. I'll remember you when I am driving Stuck behind someone slow You never managed to do the speed limit always 5 or 10 below. But the truth is I will always remember you Because you were so dear to me Everything I look at Takes me back to another memory. I hope you know I miss you And that you will always live inside my heart I hope you know that not even death, Can keep us far apart. I hope you know you weren't just my grandma But one of my best friends too I hope you know that when I grow up I want to be just like you. Herald Times Reporter, Feb. 13, 2007
