Stella M. Burgoon-- daughter of Harvey and Mary Burgoon, was born July 10th, 1886, departed this life January 19th, 1900, aged 13 years, 5 months and 9 days. Stella was a very modest girl, retiring in disposition and loved by all that knew her. No sacrifice was too great for her to make especially for the comfort of others. She never professed saving grace openly, but a few days before her death while in conversation with her mother who tired to point her to a merciful Savior and telling her to trust him, she said " I will try." Her last words were, " Weep not for me for I feel a good deal better," and with a smile on her countenance, she sank back in her pillow. After a few hours, death relieved her of her suffering which seemed intense. We leave her in the hands of a just God, who doeth all things well.
She leaves a father, mother, three brothers and five sisters, to mourn. May our loss be her eternal gain, a home in Heaven.

She was baptized in infancy and later ratified her faith in Christ by uniting with Jerusalem Reform Church, remaining a faithful member of the congregation until the doors were closed and the church finally abandoned.
She was united in marriage with Samuel Alexander on February 20, 1870, who died at Toledo, Ohio, on September 20, 1898, in the explosion of the Union Elevator.
On November 29, 1906, she was joined in marriage to Sylvester Hummel, who departed this life may 11, 1917.

As Father Time was turning the page of another week and the sun was setting on a bright and budding spring day, another soul took its flight from its carnal habitation to pass on to its rest where days, weeks and years never end and where the sun never sets.
Her kindly disposition, her congenial spirit and her desire to always make other people happy were among the great assets that so well balanced her life’s lodge.

I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

Of a loved one gone to rest
And those who think of her today
And those who loved her best.

And before we knew it she was gone
Her cheerful smile and her kind ways
We pleasantly recall
She had a kind word for everyone
And died beloved by all.
