RANDYLN J. NACHTIGAL
Randyln Jonene Nachtigal, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil J. Nachtigal, was born in Goessel, Kan. on Oct. 19, 1951 and passed away on Dec. 9, 1965 at Newton, Kan., at the age of 14 years, the cause of death being a cerebral hemorrhage.
Randyln will always be remembered for her appreciation for the finer things of life. She found great delight in the activities of the church. For many years she had been a choir member. In the last seven years she had only two absences from Sunday school. She was becoming quite proficient in playing the piano. One of her first loves was found in her 4-H activities. Here she found opportunity to give expression to her innate artistic abilities.
Early in her life she was dedicated to the Lord whom she now trusted for salvation. At the time of her death she was a member of the pastor's Catechism class, preparing for baptism and church membership.
Those who will miss her most are her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Virgil J. Nachtigal; her sister Becky; and two brothers, Kelly and Lonny, all of the home; her paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter F. Nachtigal of Newton, and her maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John Woelk of Goessel, plus numerous other relatives and a host of friends.
The funeral service was held Saturday 10:30 A.M., Dec. 11 at the First Mennonite Church of Newton with Rev. Arnold Epp officiating. A ladies sextet sang, "Wonderful Peace" and "Saved by Grace." Members of her Sunday school class attended the service as a group. Interment was in Greenwood Cemetery. — The Family.
