Barrington Review - October 31, 1918
Nelta Amanda Schnetlage, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Schnetlage, was born at Barrington June 9, 1908, and departed from 'the earthly house' at Barrington, to be with Jesus, whom she loved, at 2:15 Sunday morning, October 27, 1918, aged 10 years 4 months and 18 days.
She was a brave and patient sufferer, but unsuccessfully resisted the attacks of influenza and pneumonia, and in this she was kindly, lovingly and self-sacrificingly assisted by her loved ones, but the Lord willed otherwise, and to His will they believingly submitted.
From early childhood she was taught at home in the Salem church and Sunday School, where she was a faithful attendant, to know, to love and to believe in Jesus Christ as her Saviour. She loved to read her Bible and The Evangelical and was the youngest subscriber to The Evangelical on our Barrington list of subscribers.
Two sisters, one in infancy, and Helen, almost 3 years old, passed on before her to their heavenly home, where together they are now waiting for the coming of their beloved father and mother, two sisters, Anna and Stella, and one brother, Walter; also many other relatives and a host of friends.
The funeral was held from her late home on North Hawley street Tuesday
afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev John Hoerner, pastor of salem Church, conducting the services, assisted by Rev. H.H. Thoren, presiding elder, Misses Mabel Grebe and Mabel Stiefenhoefer sang three selections at the house and one at the cemetery.
